Pro-tip: If you want your Employers to be able to download document packets similar to an OCI, you will need to include the option for submission of resumes or at least one type of application document in order to trigger the availability of an application document pdf. If you do not offer the option of submission of any resumes, the export of the time-slot schedule will only be available as an excel file. To learn down to download event document packets, check out this article.
