Working with Applicants

As we already know, applicants appear in the recruitment database in the following ways:

In the Applicants sub-section you are able to view the entire list of individuals who applied or were added to your system, perform bulk actions with them, or make any changes manually per each candidate. 

Here on the main Applicant page, you can view the following details: ID; Name; CV; Job Opening s/he is linked to; Applied Date and finally, the Source.
