Coming Soon: Customize Sitewide Terminology
Updated: Apr 6
Has competition-specific language in InfoReady ever caused confusion in the past? Do you wish you could re-name terminology across the platform to provide better clarity for your intended audience?
If this describes you, then we have exciting news! The next platform update, scheduled to be released within a few short weeks, will allow clients to customize key terms to suit their needs. The terminology changes you select will be propagated sitewide (not per competition) everywhere the terms appear on the platform, including the user interface, notifications, PDFs, and reports. Within InfoReady, we call the new options to customize terminology 'contextualization'.
In order to prevent multiple requests that conflict with one another, we ask that one of your primary site administrators (Super or Global admins) contact us to make the changes. InfoReady will provide a form listing all the terms that can be edited along with spaces to enter the new terms you plan to use in their stead.
Please note that some institutions have separate instances of InfoReady implemented on their campus (microsites are not counted as separate instances). Each of these separate instances of InfoReady can have their own unique terminology configured. For example, the terminology for the College of Liberal Arts could be configured differently from the College of Medicine if the two colleges had different instances of InfoReady.
List of Configurable InfoReady Terms Note: All forms of the term will be changed, i.e., verb tenses, noun forms, etc.

We will announce the release of the update via the What’s New release notes available on the platform and through the InfoReady listserv. Please also consider joining us for the What’s New webinar scheduled for Tuesday, April 5th, at 1pm ET, where we will provide more details on the updates and share how they look on a live instance of the platform. Super or Global Administrators can contact their account manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request the terminology update form.
