Thanks for the links. I have read them. It appears they have changed the system for 2024 and now the reference part is divided into 3 different sections. It’s not a traditional kind of reference anymore.There is a 4,000-character limit.

"To whom it may concern,
Personal introduction. Brief description of company and location.
When the individual worked for the company and what their role was.
Personal qualities of the candidate (2/3 sentences).
