Nearly two years in, it’s clear from our readership stats you share common concerns and interests. So here’s a look at the top themes you’ve been consuming in 2017, plus links to the posts you read the most. Continue reading “Best of the Blog 2017: The Posts You Read the Most”
Louisiana State University (LSU), the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) and the University of Northern Colorado (UNCO) are among the universities who began using Workflow for Activity Insight when it became available in July. LSU’s rollout began with sabbatical requests. UTA is rolling out Workflow to its School of Business, which already uses Activity Insight, ahead of a campus-wide rollout of Activity Insight and Workflow. UNCO, which had used Activity Insight on campus for several years, dove straight into tenure and promotion. Each shared stories of early Workflow success in a panel discussion at our recent User Group.
Here are excerpts of the conversation between Joslyn Krismer, Director of Academic Operations at UTA; Nikki McNamara, Assistant Director of Human Resources Information Systems at LSU, and Mark Smith, Associate Dean, College of Natural & Health Sciences at UNCO, moderated by Kate Kaczmarczik, Digital Measures Product Marketing Manager.

We recently released the new Workflow Module for managing university processes within Activity Insight. For the past year, we collaborated with more than 25 partner clients to expand our previous capabilities to make the Workflow Module even more powerful.
Activity Insight simplifies collecting information from faculty and building reports. Our Workflow Module brings the same efficiency to annual faculty reviews, promotion and tenure, sabbatical requests and more.
With easy-to-use tools, you can now make your university’s processes paperless and predictable. Materials get into the right hands—and only the right hands—at the right time, automated reminders ensure tasks are completed on schedule, and status updates empower faculty and administrators to track progress, all in one secure system. And it’s seamlessly integrated within Activity Insight so you can fully leverage your faculty’s accomplishments in the processes you digitize. You’ll never have to ask faculty to input the same information twice.
Collaboration with clients drives everything we do at Digital Measures. Thank you to our partner universities: your enthusiasm and feedback during our product development process made the evolution of our new Workflow Module possible.
Workflow makes Activity Insight a truly one-stop shop for gathering, reporting and evaluating faculty qualifications, accomplishments and impact. We use this blog to share clients’ success, so watch in the weeks ahead for stories of improving key university processes with Workflow.
The right faculty activity reporting solution makes collecting and reporting information on faculty accomplishments and impacts vastly more efficient. In fact, Activity Insight’s promise is “Capture data once, use it infinitely.” So instead of digging through file cabinets and ring binders for the same information—again—faculty enter data once, building a body of information tailored to your university’s known reporting requirements. And that data can be queried, so if the media or a legislator call looking for a particular bit of information, it’s just a few clicks away. Now, you can multiply the efficiencies of faculty activity reporting by digitizing your processes with the new Workflow Module for Activity Insight.

If you’ve ever made an online purchase, you’ve experienced the benefits of a digital workflow. After a small amount of account setup, you add items to a virtual cart, make payment and receive updates right up to the time your order arrives on your doorstep—a great leap in efficiency and convenience compared to the old system of filling out a catalog order form or calling an 800 number. Best of all, once you complete the initial setup, you can make purchases again and again without re-entering anything—just select your items and click “order now.” Wouldn’t it be great if faculty annual reviews and promotion and tenure could be as easy and efficient? Now they can, with the Workflow Module for Activity Insight. Continue reading “Embrace the Benefits of Digital Workflow”
