Experts@Syracuse Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do I do with the content in my weekly digest that says “for approval” or “for validation”?


A: Those who have editor access to a department, school, or college will by default, receive a weekly digest of respective activity. This content will include “for approval” or “for validation”. No action is required on your part to validate/approve items in Experts that you may receive via email in the weekly digest. The validation process is an Experts/Pure workflow option that we have not enabled. We trust that the item is legitimate when added by the faculty member, research staff, students hired to add profiles, etc.

Q: How do I adjust my email settings?
