How to send a request.
Click on the 'Send Request' button within the checklist item for the recommendation or request.
Then fill out the form with the teacher/professional's name and email and click 'Send.'
Once the request has been sent, you'll see a message that says you'll receive an email once the recommendation form or transcript request is completed.
How to Edit a Request
Click on the 'Edit Request' button if you'd like to send the recommendation to a different teacher/professional. You can also send a reminder to the existing teacher/professional by clicking the 'Resend' button.
When editing the request, you will be prompted to fill out the form with the new teacher/professional's name and email. There's also a message that states the existing request will be cancelled.
Then click the 'Send New Request' button.
Important Note: If you re-send the invite while the teacher/professional is working on the recommendation, as noted by the “in progress” status in your checklist, it will cancel their link and they’ll have to start over with the new link.
You will receive an email once the recommendation or transcript request has been completed and submitted.
