Known Issue: "Job Processed Failed"

If you’ve seen a “Job Process Failed” error when publishing to Excel files or other Microsoft Office documents, it’s not you. This is related to a critical security vulnerability which has been reported in various news sources. The City of Portland has disabled the Windows Print Spooler service until a well-tested, certified patch is released by Microsoft.

Until a fix is released, all Microsoft Office documents must be converted to a PDF format prior to submission. Always check the PDF formatting before uploading the file.
