Handling Alternative Names

Access to this product feature is dependent on your institution's Watermark agreement
Base | Faculty Accomplishments | Reviews, Promotion and Tenure | Web Profiles

A user only has one account name in Faculty Success. This is desirable for many reasons, but makes it difficult to accurately represent contributors to publications, grants, etc. if a person's name changes or differs by publication. With this enhancement in place you can now ensure that the name under which an individual contributed to a given activity is recorded and displayed on reports.


When a user associates a record with a contributor through a User Reference field, the name stored for that contributor’s account defaults into the individual’s first, middle and last name fields. As before, one can modify the name information to be displayed in a citation by editing the individual name fields, or one can enter data directly to those fields if the contributor does not have an account at your institution.
