Yes. All faculty members have accounts. If you are having problems, please contact the IT Help Desk on 06 515 2121 or [email protected]
The system is designed for an individual to enter items and for that information to be used in multiple ways. The most common expected uses for information in the system would include allowing faculty to generate their annual reports.

Please note that the information in the system is intended to be used for multiple purposes with a variety of potential audiences and should be considered public record. Therefore, anything that might be considered confidential, secure or private should not be entered into Digital Measures.

Faculty members have access to their own accounts. Head of Departments, selected administrators in college/school, and other individuals within the appropriate deans' offices can access faculty accounts. For any specific information related to this, please contact your college Activity Insight Administrator.
Digital Measures has taken many steps to create a safe environment for your information while still making it easy for you to securely access it. For more information about the security practices and policies, see Serious Security
Units across campus have chosen a variety of ways to ensure that items are entered into the system. Some units have asked faculty to enter items individually while others have relied on administrative assistants to help. The system is structured in such a way that others can be given access to accounts to aid in the entering of information.
Any questions regarding where a specific type of data should be entered within Activity Insight should be directed to your Head of Department/Dean.
Activity Insight supports the uploading and storage of files related to certain categories. These screens will explicitly include the option to upload a file.
The password for Activity Insight is the same as your AUS network login. If you already have an Activity insight account, and are having login issues or any questions regarding passwords contact the AUS IT Helpdesk at 06-515 2121.
Data is synched between Activity Insight and AUS website once a day. Faculty can select which publication gets published on the public website by selecting Yes/No for each publication article in Activity Insight.

Note: Any publication record selected to be published on web profile in Activity Insight will go to AUS public website under faculty profile without approval.

As a whole, faculty are responsible for entering their own data and confirming any imported data (from AUS systems and/or citation systems) is correct. While the use of data proxies (e.g., staff) is technically allowable, any decision to allocate such resources to this task is left to the discretion of college/school.
No, not every screen or field is relevant to every faculty member and certain screens and fields will also be populated from other systems. Not all fields available on the screen are required to be completed.
“Rapid Reports” only runs a report for the person who is logged into Activity Insight, or for whomever you are managing data for. “Run Reports” allows you to choose a single report for multiple individuals if you have access rights to manage other users.
