  • During implementation, a company instance is typically setup with the ability to print People Profiles in the PDF format.
  • If this ability is not available in your instance, please contact your implementation partner to have them send you a CCOR.

  • The tags that would need to be changed are as follows: 
    • If the button Create PDF doesn’t appear in People Profile, this indicates the data model has the view template Employee Profile setup.
    • With pdf-printing-enabled set to true:

<view-template id="employeeProfile" pdf-printing-enabled="true">

  • File a change request in order to set this value to True.
  • Once this done, the create button will show up in the profile.
