The option for printing the Job Description also does not populate when printed

  • For printing the bar graph additional settings are required in Print Setup Options
  • The Browser Print Function is not currently supported for the Job Description in Career Worksheet. This can however, be done via Manage Job Profiles in Admin Center - see section 2 below
