Digital Measures organizes and builds reports on teaching, research and service activities. It enables you to keep track of your activity information just once so you can prepare other reports, such as annual activity reports, promotion and tenure documents, accreditation reports, your CV, your profile on your campus website, and more. It also assists your administration in responding to requests for faculty-related data, rather than continually asking you for the information. This enables your campus to communicate more effectively about your accomplishments.
Activity Insight is designed to be easy to navigate. To help you get started, though, here is a quick overview of the utilities you will work with most often. Screen Summary Reference Guide

Frequently Asked Questions about Activity Insight
Does Activity Insight have spell check?
Most modern browsers have settings or preferences which enable the browser to check your spelling as you type across all web applications.
How do I know where to put each of my different types of activities?
The names on each screen should assist you in determining where to put information. UHCL has customized Activity Insight to meet its own specific needs, and as a result many have created their own customized a number of screens to meet the needs of faculty and to help you locate screens and individual items, so please use this Tip Sheet.
