Recent improvements to WebCV

We are pleased to let you know of changes that have been recently introduced to WebCV. These changes are the result of work done by the WebCV User Committee, which was established in late 2013:
 
1. Modified format for Research Supervision records in the CV Report. The changes are intended to provide a better articulation of a faculty member’s research supervision by displaying their records based on the faculty member’s role. The modified research supervision record also allows for more comprehensive information for group supervision and non-thesis projects, which were specific requests from the Rehab sector. Note that the new format is automatically used - you do not need to modify your records to use the new format
 
2. Introduction of new “audiences” for Research Supervision and Teaching records.  Three new primary audiences were added to the system to better distinguish the types of training that are conducted:

  • Research Associates – appointed staff working in University Department labs
  • Postdoctoral Research Fellow (PhD) – trainees that have already attained their PhD and are continuing to work on research
  • Clinical Research Fellow (MD) – trainees that have attained an MD, and are involved in clinical research

 
Note that as part of this implementation, any records that you may have had under Graduate Education with a Year/Stage value of Postdoctoral Research have automatically been moved for you under the Postdoctoral Research Fellow audience.
 
3. Renaming of “Teaching Awards” to “Teaching and Education Awards” – implemented to better reflect the distinction between Teaching and Education.
 
If you have any questions about these changes, or have suggestions that you would like to bring to the attention of the User Committee, please do not hesitate to call or email our support team at 416-946-3289 or webcv.medicine@utoronto.ca.

Having Problems Logging Into WebCV?

If you are experiencing problems logging into the WebCV system and are using Internet Explorer as your browser, then this probably has to do with your version of Internet Explorer. If it’s a newer version (IE 10 and 11), then you have to turn on Internet Explorer’s compatibility view.

In Internet Explorer 11:

1. Navigate to the “Tools” menu (you may need to press the “Alt” key to make it appear).
2. Click “Compatibility View Settings.”
3. In the Compatibility View Settings menu, type www.torontocv.ca into the box labeled "Add this website:" and click "Add."  You should see the URL appear in the "Websites you've added to Compatibility View" list.
4. Click “Close” to close the settings window and try to log in again.

 

In Internet Explorer 10, look in your browser's address bar (to the right of the URL) for an icon that resembles a piece of paper with a jagged line through it (a "broken page" icon.)  If you see this, click it; it should turn blue and this signifies that Compatibility Mode is active.  See the below image for an example or follow these instructions.

 

 

To determine which version of Internet Explorer you are using, look under the main menu for Internet Explorer’s “Help” tab. You will find an option called “About Internet Explorer”. Click on that, and you will see the version of IE you are using.

New WebCV Terms of Use

 
Dear Faculty Members and Staff:
 
This is to inform you that a new WebCV Terms of Use (TOU) has been activated as of Friday March 14, 2014. The new TOU has been updated to align with the Protocol for WebCV Data Access and Use (the Protocol) and approved by the Dean on February 26, 2014. A primary purpose of the Protocol is to ensure that privacy is protected and that personal information is treated in a manner consistent with the requirements of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The first time a faculty member logs in to their WebCV account after the new TOU has been activated, it will appear for them to read, along with the "Agree" button. Please note that those with Member Secretary accounts will not be able to view their faculty member's WebCV data until the faculty member has logged in and clicked this button.
 
The new WebCV Terms of Use can be found at:  http://www.webcv.utoronto.ca/termsofuse
The Protocol for WebCV Data Access and Use can be found at:  http://www.webcv.utoronto.ca/protocol
