Changing Order of Uploaded Documents

Updated

One of the quirks of the Interfolio platform where faculty members upload their documents for evaluations is that the files are uploaded to the platform by File Size NOT File Name.  Often times resulting in documents that are out of the order desired by the faculty member.

Which is why it is recommended that faculty members upload documents in small batches, when more than one document is required in an any given review packet section.  Smaller batches makes it easier to rearrange document order so that it reflects what is listed on your Table of Contents.

Documents uploaded by the faculty member to an active review packet can be rearranged one of two ways, either individually or in groups.

Documents can be moved from review packet section to another once they have been successfully uploaded to the Interfolio platform

Rearranging Documents on an Individual Basis

Similar to adding documents to an active review packet section, in order to rearrange documents you have to be logged into Interfolio and your current review packet must be in edit mode.

To get started scroll to whichever review packet section you want to change the document order for.

Rearranging Documents in Groups

2. Keep the mouse as the "grabby hand", and click all titles you want to move

If you are a Mac user, you may need to press the Command button while doing this step.

The titles you click will appear to be grayed out, that will let you know visually which documents you have selected.  To deselect something, click your mouse while your pointer is the "grabby hand"

3. Move selected titles to new position

To move your selected titles, go to any of the titles that look grayed out.  Make sure that your mouse pointer is the grabby hand.  Click your mouse and hold, then move your mouse up or down to new position.

The new position will be outlined in a dashed rectangle.
