How do I activate a profile?
Answer:
To activate a profile You need to request activation from the OVPR. To do so:
  1. Navigate to your profile toolbox. Click here to find how to do so.
  2. Find the "Activate/Inactivate Profile" section. It should say: This profile is currently inactive.
  3. Click on the " Edit" link on the right hand corner.
  4. Click the " Request" link.
  5. A dialog box will popup. Please read its contents carefully. You can edit the message as you please.
  6. Click on the "Request" button. This sends a request to the Research Explorer Web Team.
  7. If the request is sent successfully, you should see this message: "Thank you, Your message has been successfully received. The Research Explorer Web Team will get in touch with you shortly to resolve the problem."
  8. If the request fails, you should see the dialog show this message: "An error was encountered and your feedback was not sent. Please contact the Research Explorer Web Team directly at Explorer@utdallas.edu or x4561."
  9. Click on the "X" button on the top right corner to close the dialog. The "Activate/Inactivate Profile" section will now say: Activation Request Pending.
  10. The system will now create a ticket for you and send you a copy by email to the address listed on your profile. Please keep this ticket for future references.
  11. The Research Explorer Web Team will then approve/deny the request based on certain criteria. Email confirmations of the same will be sent out.
  12. You can track this request by visiting your Request Inbox where you can View or Recall your request.
Some criteria that the web team will look at are:
  • A complete contact information section with Primary and Other Ranks clearly defined.
  • At least one administrative assistant listed on the profile. OSP will contact this person for proposal follow ups.
  • A complete Professional Preparation section listing academic qualifications.
