Edit Professional Activity

You can edit professional activities that have been imported from Research In View (RIV) and records you have added manually.

There are slight variations depending on if you are editing a record you added manually or a record transferred from RIV.

To edit professional activities imported from RIV, you need to first convert the record to a manual record. Once the record has been converted to a manual record, it will have two data sources: Local Source 1 (RIV) and the Manual record.

Convert RIV Record to Manual Record

Alternate path: Menu > Professional Activities > + Add a new professional activity > Select desired activity type

  1. From the Elements homepage, scroll down to Professional Activities under My Summary.
  2. Click the activity type of the record you want to edit.
