Back Entering Activities for Faculty

This article provides an overview of the historical data manager role. The historical data manager role enables reviewers to back-enter approved activities and prior approval forms into a faculty member's workspace. This function is typically used when a campus is transitioning from their old conflict of commitment system or paperwork to UC OATS. Forms that have been approved in the old system will be back-entered into UC OATS by reviewers with the historical data manager role. Documentation showing prior approval will also be uploaded and the reviewer will have the ability to approve the form based on the approval from the old system.

  • Only reviewers with the 'Historical Data Manager' role can back enter activities.
