To set-up the ability, please read the information below.

As an Admissions Manager, the first step is to setup Recommendation Types through onBoard > Settings > Candidate Profile Settings > Recommendation Types. For example, a school may need to request several recommendations such as English or Math. Setting up Recommendation Types allows an Admissions Manager to run a worklist and pull information just on English or Math Recommendations.

The next step is to add a Checklist item with the Recommendation Type. This can be done through onBoard > Settings > Checklist > Edit the Checklist and under the Milestone, click on Add Step. The following field questions will come up:
Type: Recommendation
Name: This is the checklist item name that appears on the Admin view of the Checklist
Due Date: when the checklist item needs to be submitted by
