Faculty Activities Data: Telling Y(Our) Story
We have selected Activity Insight by Digital Measures as our faculty activities system to enable faculty and the University to promote and report faculty and campus accomplishments and activities. With the selection and procurement process now behind us, we are turning our attention toward a phased implementation process.
The initial launch in 2019 is with tenured/tenure-track faculty, with the goal of having these faculty use the platform for annual reporting in early 2020. The next phase, in 2020, will expand the use of the platform to all faculty.
Getting Started with Activity Insight
Watch this short video to kickstart your experience with Activity Insight.
We have been cleaning and importing your pre-2016 Lyterati data. The majority has been imported. Be aware that it is an imperfect data transfer. For this reason, we did not clean/import publications readily available through third-party citation/reference managers. You will get cleaner results through the Publications Import feature.
Additionally, while the Lyterati Presentations data has been loaded, we are continuing to clean the authors information on this screen. This will be completed by Fall 2019.
Upcoming Training Sessions
The UMD Activity Insight team will be conducting training sessions with your school in the near future! You'll learn about using the platform, data integrations, tracking your activities, time-saving tips, and goals and expectations for entering your data.
If you are unable to attend any session, please see the in-depth orientation video.

Activity Insight Proxy Access Permission Form
Faculty members can assign to other individuals the right to act as one-to-one delegates (i.e. serve as proxies) in Activity Insight. An individual assigned by a faculty member as one-to-one faculty delegate will have access to the faculty member's Activity Insight data, will be able to manage that data, and be able to run reports for that faculty member.
This form enables a faculty member to grant proxy access to a UMD employee to enter information and/or run reports on the faculty member's behalf.
