Availability during normal working hours, Monday to Friday between the hours of 9:00 am to noon and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Booking must be made in advance to ensure the availability of instructor.
MacFACTS currently supports logins and data entry forms for individual faculty members, member secretaries and program secretaries. New accounts or resets are done during normal business hours, Monday to Friday. Please note due to the Working From Home mandate, there may be slight delays at times in fulfilling requests.
Forms for other roles like Domain Administrator or DEC are currently being developed and information will be sent out when these become available.
Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome are all recommended. Firefox and Chrome do not need the IE tab extension added on to view MacFACTS. Safari can also be used on a Mac.
MacFACTS is a web based system and can be affected by choice of browser (eg. Firefox, Chrome, Safari), internet connection, viruses, or malware. If you experience slow performance or crashes, try a different browser, or run an antivirus or malware scanner. You could also try to access MacFACTS from a coworkers computer to see if the same problem occurs. If it does not, then the problem may be with your computer and you may wish to seek professional support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
MacFACTS is located on a McMaster server. If you are trying to access from a home computer or laptop you will have to use VPN and your MacID first to access the webpage and then use your MacFACTS login in order to log into the database.
Email email@example.com or email the training coordinator directly (information on the website).
Absolutely! They can request a Member Secretary login with permission to access a faculty member's information or you can request one for them.
Only faculty members and department and faculty designated administration assistants can access the information. There are designated specialists in the Computer Services Unit that have access as well for the purpose of training and maintenance of the database.
Some data, such as personal demographics, originates in another database. These sections are indicated by the lock symbol next to the section in MacFACTS. While you can't directly edit the information yourself, you can send a form to the appropriate person with the changes. Simply click on the lock icon to bring up the form request, fill out appropriately and submit your request.
Every department in the FHS has a designated Tenure and Promotion Coordinator to assist with any content related questions. The MacFACTS webpage had included a link to the contact page for the Faculty of Health Sciences Coordinators.
There were two headings in the older STAR interface which were not included in MacFACTS because they are not part of the McMaster guidelines. (Research Training and Other Professional Activities) The information appears on the CV but cannot be added to in MacFACTS. Users are able to log into STAR and delete this information after they have moved it into the correct heading in MacFACTS. Your department can assist you with placement of the information under the correct category.
MURFI is a database used to record details of McMaster held research funding. You can shut these grants off by unchecking the "Show on CV" checkbox. The MURFI database will no longer feed into MacFACTS so all new grants can be added by the user as of 2015.
Only funded grants appear on a CV for McMaster. You may add the information in a form, however the "show on cv" check box will be disabled until you choose "funded" in the drop down box.
These are grants which have not been checked to "show on cv" and allows the user to know which ones are not appearing.
If the data was never correctly put into STAR, it could have an effect on the way it appears in MacFACTS and may have to be edited. (for example: bullets being entered in fields, dates not entered)
Only the programs in the FHS enter all teaching from a list of roles assigned to the program. You can view the teaching in your MacFACTS form and can contact the program directly with any questions or discrepancies. The MacFACTS webpage has contact lists for all of the programs linked under the Contact section.
When you click on the pencil icon next to the entry that requires additional details, you can adjust the members comment with the additional information and save. This comment will appear on your CV.
In addition to your program teaching, you have the ability to add additional teaching manually. There is a form which pops up when you click on the Add New button under Courses Taught or Supervisorships.
Because the programs have to record teaching by academic year (July to June), they have to enter in this time frame. The roles are counted and grouped together with this number and a date range indicating how many times you performed that role within that date range, rather than having the same role appear continuously every year.
