Intro to MyActivities: This video tutorial provides a general overview of MyActivities. The content includes how to set up your profile to automatically bring in your publications when possible, how to manually add activities, how to make your profile public, and how to make private items that you do not want seen on your public profile. Intro to MyActivities - Tutorial
Publication & Scholarly Works options include conference presentations, posters, invited colloquiums & symposiums, invited workshops / lectures, panelist, datasets, exhibits, book reviews, patents, reports, screenings, abstracts, proceedings, and more. Depending on your college, not all options will be available.
To fix dates:
• click, “edit record” or "add manual record" and make edits to the date or other fields that were incorrect.
• Click Save
PLEASE – DO NOT EDIT the Reporting Date to correct an incorrect date. The reporting date tells the system to include an activity in a report because its date fits within the date range for a report. It is not the date of the activity.
By following the steps above to edit a record, and editing the activity date, the reporting date will typically be updated as well. If the reporting date is not automatically updated when editing the date, click on “override” and select Manual. Enter the correct date(s).
There may be activities, such as specific publications that you would like to highlight in your public profile (http://uicollaboratory.uic.edu/). There may also be activities that you do not wish to have appear on your public profile. You will manage this through MyActivities.
To Highlight your publications as Featured:
To Highlight your professional activities, grants, or teaching activities as Featured,
Individual activities in certain categories, such as journal articles, books, funded grants, honors & awards, memberships, and courses taught will appear by default in the UICollaboratory. These are activity categories where the activities are set to appear in the UICollaboratory. (see list of Activities appearing In UICollaboratory). By default, the individual activities in the categories are set to public, and thus will appear in the UICollaboratory. If there are individual activities that you do not want public, you may hide them by making them private. Activities in other activity categories are defaulted to private. You can choose to make them visible in MyActivities, but unless they are in a category set to appear in the UICollaboratory, it is not possible to make them public.
