Manage Applicants - Move to Requisition

Manage Applicants Deprecation: Cornerstone is deprecating Manage Applicants in Q1 2024. See Manage Applicants Overview.

The Move to Requisition feature enables you to move applicants to requisitions for which they may be better suited, effectively removing them from the original requisition to which they applied. All applicants can be moved as a batch or individually.

Moving an applicant to a different requisition changes the applicant's status for the current requisition to Closed. The disposition for the Closed status can be selected on the Change Status pop-up. See Manage Applicants - Change Status for more information.

When an applicant is moved, they will not need to complete application steps in the new requisition that are identical to application steps in the requisition from which they were added or moved. Also, the recruiter can choose to persist the original status or select a new status when moving an applicant.

In addition applicant documents and attachments on the Applicant Profile page for the source requisition move with the applicant to the new requisition. The documents and attachments display on the Documents tab of the Applicant Profile page for the new requisition. For all attachments in the Attachments table, the status in the Applicant Status column is New Submission.

Mobile-Friendly Candidate Experience Considerations

When an applicant is added or moved to a new requisition and some but not all answers have been answered from the first requisition, the applicant will continue with the second application using the mobile-friendly candidate workflow. In addition, the applicant's previously answered questions will populate in the new mobile-friendly workflow.
