  • In the pop-up window, under your name is a drop down menu called 'role'.

Participant roles and RPI

When adding participants to your engagement record be sure to select their roles carefully.

In the CRO form you can choose from the following roles:

  • Creator
  • Advisor
  • Facilitator
  • Member
  • Speaker
  • Organiser
  • Participant
  • Consultant

If you select Participant or Consultant RPI points will NOT be awarded to those participants (even if they are internal to Charles Sturt).

This is to allow for the differentiation between internal participants in the engagement, but who may not be involved enough to qualify for major engagement RPI points.
