Re: SchoolSpring help please

Are employers being notified of this bug!? Regardless of how I type in the cover letter or how it saves, the letter is sent to employers in ONE BIG PARAGRAPH. Please advise on how to proceed. Does anyone have any news or updates?

 

I do not want to withdraw applications and resubmit because the problem is not corrected. I do not think employers will want to hire some who write a cover letter in one giant paragraph.

The <br> shows up on the first line of each paragraph on the copy the employeer gets. Im not sure if this looks worse or better than the one large paragraph. Ugh. Do we think this is happening to everyone or just some users? If everyone's coverletters are one large paragraph maybe it wont seem so bad.

I have also tried to reformat my cover letter to make it how it should be. I sent an application into a school and it got sent as 1 huge paragraph. How horrible does that look on me.... Are employers going to be make aware of this? Is there a solution?

Hi @valley@kfruchter@Paige1,

We are sorry that you are facing difficulty with formatting your cover letters correctly on SchoolSpring.

As @AbrittyB and @SowmyaN mentioned this is a known issue affecting all SchoolSpring users. The SchoolSpring product team is working on a fix.

In the meantime, here is a workaround that should be able to help you format your cover letters properly.

Using <br> HTML tag for line break or <p>Your text </p> to define a paragraph should be able to help with formatting you cover letter.

Example:

You can use <br> to enter a line break and the text starts from the next line.
Use <br> <br>followed by your text to insert a new empty line.

Similarly, you can use <p></p> to accomplish the same

Example:

 While

<p>Hi this is a test</p>

We appreciate your patience and understanding while our product team works to find a solution.
