Manage Applicants - Search Filters

Manage Applicants Deprecation: Cornerstone will be deprecating Manage Applicants with the February '21 Release. See Manage Applicants Overview.

Recruiters can search for applicants on the Manage Applicants page using the search filters. The search filters display above the Applicants table when you click Refine your search. The Applicant Name filter displays by default. The other filters that are available are the filters associated with the columns selected on the Edit Page Layout page. For example, if the Current Status column is included in the layout, then the status filter displays.

Applicant Name Filter

This filter displays by default and always appears at the top of the filters. To filter by applicant name, enter a full or partial name in the field. There is no character limit. Then, click Search to update the Applicants table to display the filtered results.

Show All

Click the link to show all applicants in any status type.

Clear All

Click the link to clear all selections in the status filter carousel. The applicants table updates to show all applicants in any status type.

Include Hired/Closed

Click the Include Hired/Closed link to update the applicants table to include applicants who are in a Hired or Closed status.

Status Filter

The status filter only displays if selected on the Edit Page Layout page. In addition, the statuses that display are defined in Applicant Status (by Division).

The statuses display in a carousel format that allows recruiters to click through the statuses and select one or more statuses by which to filter the Applicants table. Each status displays in a box. When a status box is selected, the box is outlined in the corporate color, as defined by the administrator in Display Preferences. Boxes that are not selected are outlined in gray.

Select All Statuses

The Select All box always displays as the first box and is selected by default. When selected, all statuses are selected except Closed and Hired. The Applicants table displays all applicants that are in the selected statuses. Click the Select All box to deselect all statuses.

Select Individual Statuses

To filter by one or more statuses, select one or more of the status boxes. Click Search when you are done making your selection(s). To remove a status filter, deselect the status box.

Status Boxes

The following information displays in the status boxes for each status:

  • Status Name - The status name displays in each box. If the status name is longer than the size of the box, hover over the box to view the full status name.
  • Number of Applicants - The number of applicants that are currently in the status displays below the status name. The number updates dynamically each time an applicant reaches the status or is no longer in the status.
  • Drop-Down - For statuses that have multi-select options, a drop-down displays to the right of the status name. Click the drop-down to display the options. As with current functionality for multi-select drop-downs, select one or more of the options. This updates the Applicants table with the selected filters.
  • When a partial number of options are selected in the drop-down, only the arrow for the status box displays in the corporate color. When all options for the status are selected, both the drop-down arrow displays in the corporate color and the status box is highlighted in the corporate color.

Statuses with Multi-Select Options

For statuses that have multi-select options, selecting the status box automatically selects all options for the status. Deselecting the box deselects all options for the status.

Closed Status

If Closed is selected in the Status filter, then applicants who are deemed unqualified display in the filtered results.

Interview Status

For the Interview status type, there are multiple statuses. To view the statuses, click the expand arrow to the right of the Interview status in the status box. This expands the list of Interview status type statuses.

Note: For the Interview status type, if N/A is the value of the status filter, then the applicant does not display. For example, if the Manage Applicants table is filtered to only display applicants for whom a scheduled interview has not yet been scheduled, then the only applicants that display are applicants who have a value of "Not Scheduled" in the Phone Screening status column. Applicants who have a value of "N/A" in the column do not display in the table.

Refine Your Search

The additional filters are hidden by default. The Refine your search link enables recruiters to view the additional filter options. Hiding the filters by default provides a more simplified look and allows recruiters to select the filter information that they would like to view.

Clicking the Refine your search link opens the filter options. The filter options that display are dependent upon the columns that are configured on the Edit Page Layout page to display in the Applicants table. If none of the columns selected on the Edit Page Layout page have associated filters, then the Refine your search link does not display.

Sources

Click the Sources drop-down to select the source from which the applicant applied. Referral and Other are default sources.
