What are chapters?
Chapters are used to manage applications and reviews arranged by a distinct classification, such as geographic area. You might have different application dates by chapter, or a different set of categories. You can assign chapter administrators to oversee applications and reviews for a particular chapter. You may need to report on applications by chapter. You can also set up review panels (groups of reviewers) to review specific chapters.
Common examples of chapters include states, regions, cities, countries, departments, business units, and so on.
- New accounts have a single "default" chapter configured
- Depending on your program, your account may be configured to support multiple chapters or not
- If you're not using multi-chapter functionality, nothing further needs to be done--all applications will be automatically and transparently associated with this default chapter
- At least one chapter must exist in your account
You can modify the existing default chapter, renaming it to suit your needs. And, based on how many chapters you have purchased, you can add more.
To configure an additional chapter:
- Go to Settings > Applications > Chapters
- Click Add chapter
- Add a name for your chapter
- If desired, provide a chapter description
- (optional) In the 'Managers' list, select any administrators you wish to assign to this chapter
Note: only users with the chapter administrator role will show in the administrator list. Assigning an administrator in the list provides them with visibility and access to applications and management for their assigned chapter only.
- Save your new chapter
Any chapters you create will be for the currently selected season in Settings > Applications > Chapters.
- When configuring a chapter, the Images tab allows you to upload chapter sponsor logos
- The logos appear in a vertical column to the far right when creating/managing an application
- Strictly speaking, chapter images can be anything - they don't have to be sponsor logos
- A heading (such as "Chapter sponsors") can also be defined to display at the top of the column of images
- Setting a maximum image width constrains the width images are displayed at
- If images are larger than the maximum width, they are automatically downsized
- If images are smaller than the maximum, they remain at their original size
