The second key feature of DM is its ability to automatically generate forms that you need throughout the year. These forms include Form 6, Form 16A, and the NIH and NSF Biographical Sketch.
To begin, select the Run Custom reports tab on the left navigation on DM. You will then see this screen:
Step 1 asks which form you would like to download. For more information on the types of Forms see right. Step 2 asks for a start and end date. This allows you the option to display one, several or all the years in your career. Step 3 is only displayed for Form 6 and 16A, here you will select which track you are on (non-tenure, tenure, tenured). Step 4 asks which format you would like to export the form (Microsoft Word, PDF, etc). Lastly, step 5 asks for a page size.
Once you have selected all your preferences, click "Build Report" in the lower right hand corner. In just seconds a report will be generated in another application, where you can then print, edit, export, etc.
