To manually approve, view, or change the status of the profile of an institution in your group:

  1. Log on to QuestionPoint using your group administrator authorization number.     
  2. If the Profile module is not displayed, click Profile at the top of the screen. Or, if the Profile module is displayed but the Administration Functions part is not, click the Administration tab.  The system displays the Administration Functions part of the Profile module.
  3. In one of the three drop-down lists in the View profiles by area, select an institution whose profile you want to manually approve, view or change the status of.  
    • The list next to the Candidate Status button contains only the institutions whose profiles await manual approval/activation. If the list is empty, no profiles await manual approval.
    • The list next to the Name button contains all the institutions in your group in alphabetical order by institution name.
    • The list next to the Institution ID button contains all the institutions in your group in order by institution ID.
  4. Click the button to the left of the institution that you selected.
    • The system displays the Institution Services part of the institution's profile. The activation status of the profile is listed for your group and a button appears for each action, if any, you can currently take on the profile.
  5. If you want to approve or change the status of the profile, go to step 6.
    If you want to view the profile, go to step 7.
  6. Click the button for the appropriate action. Then go to step 8. The system changes the status of the profile for your group and redisplays Institution Services. A button appears for each action, if any, you can take now on the profile.
    • To approve the profile, click the Activate button.
    • If you click the Reject or Inactivate button, be sure to inform the institution administrator of the reasons for your action and the next steps that the institution should take.
