PROCEDURE STEPS:

Print a Single Applicants Application Information

  1. Navigate to the Manage Job Opening Page: Main Menu → Recruiting → Search Job Openings. Search and select the desired Job Opening.

  3. Select the items you would like to view/print from the Application Detail, Questionnaire Type and Attachment type sections by clicking on the checkbox next to the item you’d like to view/print.
    • Use the Select All link at the bottom of each section to select all of the items from that section.
      • Utilize the Deselect All link at the bottom of each section to deselect all of the items you previously selected.
    • In Attachment Type section, leave Print Latest Document unchecked. If an application includes more than one attachment of the same type, checking the boxes restricts printing to the most recently uploaded file.  i.e. if multiple transcripts are attached, only the last one uploaded will be included.  The check box is selected and disabled for Resume attachments because only one resume attachment is allowed per application.
      NOTE: Attachments without an Attachment Type designation in the application will not pull into the generated PDF.
      (Background: Applicants must choose an attachment type when they are completing the online application.  But when a UW TAM user adds an attachment later and an Attachment Type is not selected, then the system does not recognize it for the PDF.   To correct, use Edit Application Details to add an Attachment Type. i.e. Cover Letter, Reference, Transcripts, Other)
      no attatchment type

    • Separator pages are inserted before each attachment to indicate the attachment type. i.e. Resume, Cover Letter, etc. Check the Exclude Separator Pages checkbox to suppress the separator pages from the PDF.
    • Select the Exclude sections with no content available checkbox to avoid having blank sections in the report.
    • Select the Save My Selections checkbox to have the feature print the same material in the next report.

  5. Format the report
    • Select the Exclude sections with no content available checkbox to suppress empty sections of the application from the output.  If left unchecked, the report prints headers and an explanatory message for all of the empty sections.  Use this checkbox in conjunction with the Select All links to efficiently exclude empty sections without having to manually select the individual sections with data.
    • Selecting the Generate one PDF report per application checkbox will create separate PDF files for each application.  If left unchecked, the system creates a single PDF file with all included applications.
    • Separator pages are inserted before each attachment to indicate the attachment type. i.e. Resume, Cover Letter, etc. Check the Exclude Separator Pages checkbox to suppress the separator pages from the PDF.
