Things to know about Submittable

Based on our experience using Submittable last year, here are some things faculty members submitting IPRs on Submittable should know:

  • When signing in, faculty members should use the Single Sign On (SSO) option and log in using your UM NetID and password.
  • If a faculty member has a Submittable account created prior to 2020, please email Tom McClintock so he can request that Submittable merge the old and current accounts to ensure the faculty member will easily find their Faculty Evaluation documents in Submittable.
  • The emails FE managers send via the Submittable platform prompting faculty to take action at various steps in the FE process appear in a faculty member’s inbox as coming from Submittable. We recommend faculty members create a rule in their email inbox directing all emails from Submittable to a single folder so they can locate them easily.

These and other tips will be posted here and shared with FE managers and at the training session for faculty listed above.
