How do I get started?

After your faculty account is created, you should follow these steps:

1. Brand your Merit page with photos, bio, and links. Learn how to brand your Merit page here

2. Import your Faculty members. Follow instructions on how to do an import here

3. Create user accounts. Follow instructions to create any new administrative user accounts here

4. Publish your first story. Follow the instructions for sending a press release here.




What do I need for my faculty import?

Faculty imports work just like student imports except that the fields "major" and "minor" are not used, and instead you should include the fields "title" and "department." Therefore your spreadsheet for the import should contain columns for the following values:

- First name*
- Last name*
- Postal code*
- City//Hometown*
- Email address*
- Title
- Department
- Suffix (i.e. PhD)

Download a sample spreadsheet here.




What can faculty members do?

Faculty members can personalize and update their Merit page in all the same ways that students can, including uploading images, adding a bio, connecting their social media accounts, adding publications, classwork, projects, and more.


Can I manage faculty accounts?

Unlike student accounts, faculty accounts can be managed with an impersonation feature for each faculty member.
