The Common Application
Daily Update

November 1, 2013

As promised, we are sending daily updates regarding system performance and support. We will continue this communication as long as there is news to share.

PDF and Submission. We have upgraded our PDF generation tool, which should resolve most upload issues pertaining to transcripts and recommendations with elaborate graphics. The upgrade will also help improve the performance of the PDF generation process that applicants and recommenders encounter in the submission process.

Assigning vs. Inviting. There is a difference between inviting a recommender and assigning a recommender. Inviting involves entering the recommender's name and email address. Assigning involves selecting the "assign" button at the bottom of the Assign Recommenders page. This assignment must be done before teachers and other recommenders can see a student on their list.
(Email updates will resume on Monday. Should we need to alert you to developments over the weekend, we will do so through  Facebook and  Twitter. Both of those feeds are also available on our website.)
