Manage Candidates Page (Early Adopter)
This functionality is in the Early Adopter phase. Enablement was made available in Stage portals in May 2018. For more information about availability, see the Overview topic for this functionality.
The Manage Candidates page provides a one-stop shop where recruiters can quickly and effectively assess and manage all their candidates through the hiring process.
Prior to this enhancement, recruiters had to navigate to various pages to manage their candidates (Manage Requisition, Submitted Referrals, New Submissions, Manage Applicants, etc.). Further, recruiters could only view candidates for one requisition at a time. With the new Manage Candidates page, recruiters will be able to view all of their candidates across their requisitions in a single screen, eliminating the need to navigate to other pages in the system. Recruiters will also be able to search and filter to find specific candidates, as well as view their candidates on a mobile device.
To access the Manage Candidates page after enabling in Feature Activation Preferences, go to .

The Customize Columns option lets you dictate which columns display on the page and the order in which they display.
Note: Edge integration packages can be displayed as unique columns. As of March 2020, non-Edge integrations such as HireRight cannot be displayed as columns on Manage Candidates.
She only wants to view the following columns and in this order:
- Candidates name
By using the ability to configure columns on the Manage Candidates page, Sally can hide the Source and Location columns, as well as re-order the columns on the page. This allows her to be more effective in her role, as she can compare candidates quickly and easily.
Sally is a recruiter for ABC Company. Because ABC Company only uses one career site, Sally never needs to look at the Source column when comparing applicants. When she logs in to her portal, Sally only wants to see the following columns:
- Candidates name
Because it is most important for her to view the candidate name, requisition, status, and flags, Sally wants to see those columns first and in the same order every time she logs in to her portal.
Sally is able to be most efficient with her time because she does not have to configure the Manage Candidates page every time she accesses it.
Sally is a recruiter for ABC Company. Sally only focuses on 20 roles in technology. Because of that, Sally wants to set the default filter to show those 20 requisitions. Sally is then more efficient because she does not need to search for those 20 jobs every time she comes to the Manage Candidates page.
To configure the columns:
- Click the Customize Columns option . This opens the Customize Columns flyout.
- Uncheck the box next to the columns you would like to hide.
- Suggested Action - This option can only be configured if the box for the Status column is checked. If the Status column is unchecked, the Suggested Action box is disabled on the Customize Columns flyout, and suggested actions will not appear on Manage Candidates.
- Click and drag columns into the order in which you would like them to appear.
- Suggested Action - This option cannot be ordered separately from the Status column.
- Check the Save As Default box to set this as your default view.
- Click .
Hidden columns will not appear for you on the page. Also, this only hides the columns for you and does not impact other users who view the page.
You can go back to viewing all columns on the page by clickingat the top of the Customize Columns flyout.
The total number of active candidates is displayed at the top of the page, along with the number of active candidates in each status. The statuses reflect all relevant candidates, based on the filters that have been applied.
Each status is clickable. When you click a status, the results update to show candidates who are in the selected the status.
By default, candidates in the Closed and Hired status do not display. You can view these candidates by toggling the Show only active candidates filter.
Each status has its own color bar. The color bar appears in the carousel, as well as in the Status column in the table. This can help to quickly identify a candidate's status in the table.
The Change Status feature on Manage Candidates lets you change the status of one or more candidates across all your requisitions from a single page. All candidates can be changed to the same status at once, or you can change individual candidate statuses.
Having a single page to change statuses can save recruiters an inordinate amount of time.
To change the status:
- Check the Select All box to change the status of all candidates on the page. Or, choose individual candidates by checking the box to the left of the candidate's name.
- Click the
button. This opens the Change Status flyout. For each candidate, the next status in the workflow is auto-populated.
- Bulk Status Change - Change all candidates to the same status by selecting a status from the Change all statuses to drop-down. Required statuses cannot be skipped, so the status for some candidates may need to be changed individually. The statuses that appear in the drop-down are common statuses that are used across requisitions.
- Individual Status Change - Change the status individually by choosing the status from the drop-down in the New Status column for each candidate. Required statuses cannot be skipped.
- Select a status change date in the Date column. The date cannot be a future date, or earlier than the start date of the current status, or earlier than the date the requisition was created.
- Bulk Date Change - Select a status change date for all candidates by using the Change all dates to field at the top of the flyout. Or,
- Individual Date Change - Select a status change date for individual candidates from the date option in the Date column.
- Remove candidates from the Change Status flyout by clicking the in the last column. This option is helpful if you change your mind about wanting to change a candidate's status.
- Click . This updates the status in all locations in the system. If you change a candidate from New Submission or Suggested Referral, the candidate will no longer appear on those respective pages.
Or, you can also individually change status for a candidate by clicking the candidate’s current status in the Manage Candidates table.
A validation message will be shown for each candidate that has an error, prior to being able to save the new status.
When changing candidates to the Closed status, you can select a disposition in bulk or for each candidate individually.
Note: Suggested referrals will appear with the status of Suggested Referrals. You can only change a suggested referral to Invite to Apply or Decline. As with existing functionality, candidates in the Invite to Apply or Decline status cannot be moved into another status. However, you can change a suggested referral from Invite to Apply to Decline or vice-versa, which is consistent with current functionality.
Note: This option does not display if the Allow applicant status change date option is unchecked in General Preferences.
Note: When the status change is saved, the status change is processed and the table is refreshed. A message appears at the top of the Manage Candidates page indicating that the table is being updated to reflect the changes. In some cases, the table may refresh moments before the status change is processed. As a result, the previous status may still be visible after the table is refreshed.
If you would like to confirm that the status change was effective, you can refresh the table manually. This can be done many ways, including changing the sorting on the table, applying or removing a filter, entering or removing search terms, or even refreshing the browser page. Alternatively, completing another action such as adding or removing flags, adding or moving a candidate to a requisition, or completing an additional status change will also refresh the table.
Manage Remaining Candidates
You can disposition the remaining candidates for a job requisition when you fill all openings for the requisition. This can be done when bulk changing status across one or more requisitions or when changing the status of candidates for an individual requisition.
Once you have clickedto change the candidate's status to Hired and filled all openings for the requisition, the Manage Remaining Candidates flyout will appear so that you can make decisions about the remaining candidates. In the pop-up, select one of the following:
- Don't Change - This option is selected by default. When selected, the remaining candidates remain in their current status.
- Close All - Select this option to change the status of all remaining candidates to Closed. In the drop-down, select a disposition reason for closing the candidates.
Clickto save the changes. The changes will not be reflected immediately and will take time to appear in the system.
This option lets you view resumes for multiple candidates at a time, as well as change their status.
To view resumes:
- Check the Select All box to select all candidates on the page. Or, choose individual candidates by checking the box to the left of a candidate's name. At least one candidate must be selected in order to enable the button.
- Click . This opens the applicant carousel.
The applicant carousel is a centralized location for recruiters to evaluate a candidate's application, assess their qualifications, and easily take actions on a candidate. Recruiters can evaluate the resume and prescreening questions, read and write contextual information about the candidate, and take actions without navigating to another page.
When multiple candidate are selected, you can paginate through selected candidates.
Sam is a recruiter at ACME and uses Manage Candidates daily to manage all candidates across all requisitions. Sam is actively looking to fill an Account Manager position. She has three new submissions she would like to review for this requisition, so she filters candidates by that requisition and the status of New Submission. She then selects all candidates and clicks View Resume. This opens the new Manage Candidates applicant carousel where she can view all candidate details and paginate through the selected candidates. For each candidate, suggested referral, and employee, she will see one of the following:
- Resume file and parsed resume details, with the ability to toggle between the two views
- Resume only
- Parsed resume details only
- A LinkedIn card linking Sam to the candidate's LinkedIn profile
- A LinkedIn card and parsed resume details
Sam would also like to view a single candidate's resume. To do this, she can select the candidate and click.
Sam asks many prescreening questions in the Account Manager position, such as years of experience as an account manager.
When viewing a candidate from Manage Candidates, she has direct access to a candidate's prescreening questions and answers. These are displayed below the candidate's resume.
Sam will continue to be able to change a candidate's status directly from the new applicant carousel and can also trigger the add/move to functionality.
Sam is conducting a phone interview for a new position. Before the phone interview, she opens the candidate's applicant carousel on Manage Candidates.
Using the new carousel, Sam views the applicant's resume and takes notes on the candidate.
Candidate's Contact Information
The candidate's name, email, phone number, and location appear at the top of the page. If the candidate applied via LinkedIn, a link to their LinkedIn page is also available.

- Send Email To - Check the box to send an email to the requisition owner and/or the potential applicant, notifying them that the candidate has been added or moved to the requisition. Both boxes are unchecked by default. Note: If the new requisition requires applicants to complete certain steps prior to submitting their application, the email can be configured in Email Management to include a link for the applicant to apply directly to the requisition. Further, the application materials for the new job are pre-populated with the applicant's existing information.

- The candidate opted out of candidate search.
- The candidate was screened out of the applicant pool based on their responses to pre-screening questions.
- Candidates cannot be moved into a Closed status directly as part of the add/move to requisition process. If a recruiter wants to add a Closed candidate from requisition A to requisition B, they would first need to add the candidate to requisition B in any of the available statuses, and then they would need to change the candidate's status to Closed.

- In the Selected Requisitions panel, check the box next to Potential Applicants and/or Requisition Owners to send the "Add Applicant" email to notify them that the candidate has been added to the requisition. Both boxes are unchecked by default. Note: The "Add Applicant" email must be configured and active in Email Administration.

- If moving a suggested referral, their status in the old requisition will be set as "Suggestion Declined."
- If adding or moving a suggested referral, their status in the new requisition will be set as "Suggested Referral."
- While the status for a suggested referral will be system defined, a status will still need to be selected in the New Status drop-down. For candidates who are moved, a disposition will need to be selected in the Please select a disposition drop-down. The status and disposition you select will not appear for the candidate, but it is still necessary to make a selection in order to complete the add/move process.

- Searches are performed using a "starts with" method. This means that a search for "Art" will yield "Arthur" but not "Martin."
- Names will be searched by first name and last name individually, meaning if I search for “John”, it will match a candidate “John Newton,” as well as “Sally Johnson”
- Exception: Japanese or Chinese characters are searched using a "contains" method. This means that a search for "Art" would yield “Arthur” and "Martin" as a match.
Note: Anonymized New Submissions are not searchable by their anonymized data (name, email address, phone number). However, other data from their resume is searchable.
- Email Address
- Phone Number
- Job Title*
- Education Details*
*The resume fields that are available for keyword search may vary depending on which fields are mapped for the resume, as well as whether or not resume parsing is turned on in the application workflow.
When using the search box to search for data in parsed resume fields, the following types of resume fields are used in the search:
- Short Text Box
- Scrolling Text Box
- Attribute List
Resume keywords are not translated. If a recruiter searches for terms in a language that the candidate did not use, their search may not result in a match. For example, if a candidate applies in French (France), and a recruiter whose language is English (UK) enters an English search term (e.g., "accounting"), then the search will not return results for candidates whose resume data is in French (France).
You can decide which requisitions and statuses you would like to view on the Manage Candidates page by configuring the filters in the Filters panel.
You can remove all filters by clicking. Filters can be collapsed.

- Click at the bottom of the Filters panel. A pop-up message appears at the top of the page to let you know that your selections were successful.
Your filter settings will remain even when you leave Manage Candidates and return or log out of your portal and log back in. This creates a more efficient experience when viewing and comparing candidates.
You can remove your default settings by clickingat the top of the Filters panel. This returns the filters to their default system settings.
The following filters are available on the Manage Candidates page:
- Show only open reqs - By default, candidates in the Closed and Hired statuses are not displayed on the Manage Candidates page. To view these candidates, toggle the Show only open reqs option.
- All Jobs - Click to show candidates in all jobs you have access to, regardless of whether or not you are a requisition owner. To view all jobs, a user must have permission to manage candidates. The candidates that display are the candidates that are within your permission constraints.
- My Jobs - Click to show candidates in jobs for which you are a requisition owner.
- Select Requisition - Check the box next to the requisitions you would like to view. To filter the list, enter keywords into the search field.

Tip: Searching by status can help you quickly find candidates in one or more statuses across your requisitions, or within one or more particular requisitions. This can provide helpful flexibility to enable the recruiter to execute their work as they see fit.
You can filter candidates by applicant and application flags. The Flags filter displays all flags that have been added to the candidates who are in the applicant pool for the requisitions to which you have access. Application flags that apply to the applicants in your available requisitions also display.
To filter by flags, check the box next to the filter. You can also search for flags using the search box. The number of candidates that have been assigned the flag appears to the right of the flag name.
The candidate results update automatically. When more than one flag is selected, only candidates who have all of the flags display in the results.
Recruiters are only able to view, add, and delete applicant flags that are in their organizational unit (OU) and can only edit applicant flags if they have the Applicants: Manage Flags permission.
Flags that are not in a recruiter's OU will not be visible to the recruiter.
- Sarah is a recruiter at ACME and has access to the new Manage Candidates page but does not have the Applicants: Manage Flags permission.
- When Sarah visits the Manage Candidates page, she will see all Candidate flags but will not be able to click on the flag to edit the content.
- When Sarah selects multiple candidates at once, she will not see a button to manage flags.
- Adam is a recruiter at ACME within the Los Angeles Division OU. Adam has access to the Manage Candidates page and has the Applicants: Manage Flags permission. When Adam goes to the Manage Candidates page, he will see all flags assigned to candidates assigned within the Los Angeles Division OU.
- The flag "Call Back in a Week" is in the Los Angeles Division OU. Because of this, Adam can filter Manage Candidates by this flag and can see all candidates with this flag.
- Max is an administrator at ACME and removes the flag "Call Back in a Week" from the Los Angeles Division OU. When Adam logs back in to the Manage Candidates page, he will no longer be able to filter candidates by this flag and will not see the flag assigned to any candidates.
This filter lets you filter by candidate source, which is how the candidate applied. This includes candidates being added manually, referrals, career sites, etc.
To filter by candidate source, select or deselect a source option. The candidate results update automatically.
Manage Candidates displays candidates from all the requisitions you can access and that are within your permission constraints. By default, candidates are sorted by newest to oldest submission date. Up to 20 candidates display per page. Additional candidates can be viewed by clicking on the pagination controls at the bottom of the page.
Up to 10 pages of results can be viewed. To find candidates in groups that exceed the 10-page limit, narrow your search results by selecting specific requisitions or statuses or by doing a keyword search.
You can sort the candidates table by the following:
- First Name (A-Z)
- First Name (Z-A)
- Req ID (Ascending)
- Req ID (Descending)
- Days in Status (Shortest)
- Days in Status (Longest)
- Submission Date (Oldest)
- Submission Date (Newest)
- Relevance - This setting sorts by the candidate's relevance to the search criteria you entered in the Search candidates and resume search field.
The Select All checkbox is used to quickly select all candidates that are visible on the page so that you can complete actions for all the selected candidates at once, such as changing their status.
The following columns and information is available in the candidates table:
Recruiters can view, add, and edit applicant flags for candidates in bulk or one at a time, as well as filter candidates by flags. When looking at multiple candidates across multiple requisitions, administrators can quickly select candidates and add the same flag to all of them. Administrators can even add multiple flags and delete existing ones from the same flyout for an efficient, simplified experience.
The flags are color-coded and labeled based on Applicant Flags Preferences and the system defaults for flags. Flags display in order or most to least recently added.
