Manage Applicants - Edit Page Layout

The Edit Page Layout page allows recruiters to customize the visibility of the columns and features that display on the Manage Applicants page. Recruiters can define and save custom layouts that include the features and columns that fit the needs of the recruiter. This helps to reduce the amount of horizontal scrolling that is necessary when viewing the applicant information.

From this page, recruiters can do the following:

  • Configure the Manage Applicants table column by column
  • Customize the default template layout
  • Create custom layout templates for individual requisitions
  • Apply saved layout templates to each requisition

Note: The page layout configurations are per logged-in user. Therefore, if multiple users in the same organizational unit configure the layout differently, the page displays for each user based on their own individual configurations.

To access the Edit Page Layout feature, click the Edit Page Layout option in the upper-right corner of the Manage Applicants page.

Recruiters can select one of the following page layouts to configure the Manage Applicants page:
