Deprecation of Manage Applicants in a Future Release/Redirect to Manage Candidates with the April '21 Release
With the April '21 release, when the Applicants count is selected from the Manage Requisitions page in Production and Pilot portals, users will be redirected to a filtered view of Manage Candidates instead of Manage Applicants. Support for defects related to Manage Applicants will also stop at this time.
Manage Candidates is a one-stop-shop for recruiters to effectively and efficiently manage candidates throughout the hiring process. Manage Candidates provides a modern UI (user interface) and additional actions and details available to recruiters that Manage Applicants doesn't. This change provides a better user experience by centralizing all the essential actions recruiters need to take from one page, rather than navigating to multiple pages.
As part of a separate enhancement for the April '21 release, Manage Candidates is enhanced to respect the permissions that are currently available on Manage Applicants. Enhancing permissions ensures that customers will have a smooth transition without concerns about security and access.
With this enhancement, an "Applicants Links on Manage Requisition Page Direct to Manage Candidates" feature is added to Feature Activation Preferences. The feature is on by default and enables the redirect to Manage Candidates in Production and Pilot portals when the Applicants count is clicked from Manage Requisitions.
However, if the redirect to Manage Candidates impedes your recruiting practices, then you can disable this feature in the "Applicants Links on Manage Requisition Page Direct to Manage Candidates" section in Feature Activation Preferences. When disabled, clicking the Applicants count from the Manage Requisitions page in Production and Pilot portals will open Manage Applicants instead of Manage Candidates.
