Run reports on Common App counselor forms

userEducator Xello productXello 6-12 Time2 minutes

If your school has integrated Xello with Common App, your students will send a request through Xello for their counselor forms. Run the Common App counselor forms report to keep track of the progress of student requests.

View which forms your students have requested. Track which institution they're requesting the form be sent to, when the request was made, and whether it's been sent or opened by the institution. Export the report so you can easily narrow the data and track which reports are remaining.
