Slate delivers an out-of-the-box process that allows an applicant to request a reference from a recommender within the Slate-hosted application. This reference form allows the recommender to submit a letter of recommendation that is uploaded to the application record in Slate.
To test the recommendation process administratively:
Upon selecting "Send to Recommender" within a Slate-hosted application, Slate automatically sends an email to the recommender listed. Included in this email is a recommendation link that is unique to both the application and the recommender.
Be aware that this link expires after one of the following occurs:
- The applicant manually "Excludes" a recommender from consideration.
- 24 hours after the recommender has submitted their unique recommendation form.
