Many independent schools do not allow families to upload their own transcript files for admission. We currently use the Recommendation step type and have reworked it so that families can use it to request recommendations from schools and have them sent directly to us. However, this means that in order to have the transcripts attached to current school records, our Admissions team must manually download and re-upload them into the candidate record. This also causes complications when we use things like the Committee Review feature because transcripts and recommendations are mixed together.
It would be fantastic to have a Request Transcripts step type that functions like the Recommendation step, but maps the submitted file to the transcript rather than the recommendations.
