Manage Candidates Profile – Allow Access to Flattened Application

This functionality is not available at the start of UAT.

Prior to this release, hiring managers who need to view documents a candidate uploaded with the application, may not have access to the screens that provide this functionality.

With this release, users with access to the Manage Candidates Profile page click the Download Application link in the Applicant Summary section to download the .pdf or flattened application that contains the documents the candidate uploaded with their application.

Note: The Download Application link is also available when using the Request Candidate Feedback feature.

How Does This Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

Customers can download the candidate's documents without leaving the Manage Candidates View Profile page.


This functionality is available for all portals using Recruiting.


The Download Application link is not visible if there is no flattened application present or for anonymized Request Candidate Feedback links.


The following existing permissions apply to this functionality:

Applicants: Comments - Manage

Grants ability to view and manage comments for applicants.

This permission also defines whether comments posted when an interviewer submits an interview recommendation are posted to the Comments section on the Applicant Profile tab. Note: Interview recommendation comments for interviewers who have this permission display on the Applicant Profile tab. For interviewers who do not have this permission, the comments do not display on the Applicant Profile tab.

Applicants: Comments - View Grants ability to view comments for applicants. Recruiting
Applicants: Status Change Grants ability to change applicant status for any applicant to whom the user already has access. This permission cannot be constrained. Recruiting
Requisition: Manage Grants ability to access and manage all requisitions regardless of ownership (constraints permitting). This permission also grants read-only access to the Applicant Review tab when creating or editing a job requisition. This permission can be constrained by OU, User's OU, and Grade. Recruiting
Requisition: Owner

Enables owner to access requisitions and applicants for requisitions for which they are an owner. This permission also grants read-only access to video interviews that are completed by applicants via HireVue. For portals with Referral Suite enabled, this permission also enables requisition owners to edit the referral source on the Applicant Profile page. This permission cannot be constrained.

Note: This is a dynamically assigned permission that is not available in Security Role Administration. If the user is removed as an owner, the permission is revoked for the associated requisition. This permission cannot be manually assigned. Also, if a user has both the permission necessary to manage requisitions and be a requisition owner, the constraints of the Requisition: Manage permission overrule those of the Requisition: Owner permission. For requisition owners that do not also have permission to manage requisitions, only certain fields are editable when editing a requisition.
