The CommonApp Recommendations file contains data points from school forms and submitted recommendations.
- Many institutions elect not to map this file. Remember that all of the data from the CommonApp Recommendations file is also imported as a PDF material. As such, your readers will be able to access this information in the Slate Reader even if you do not map this file.
- All data points from the data feeds are associated with a student record, even if those data points are not mapped to a field.
- Most institutions find that mapping only the Slate Common App ID (which has been pre-mapped) is sufficient for this source format.
