Reproducing the Issue

A user doesn't have the  "View Candidate Ratings" link (neither from the Job Requisition page nor from the Application page).


There are two possible causes for this:

  • Firstly, the user is acting as a Recruiting Role which doesn't have enough permissions due to the configuration in the Job Requisition XML Template.
  • The second reason is that at least one candidate on the requisition has not been given an overall rating.


View Candidate Ratings” is a link to the summary of interviewers’ ratings (based on competencies). You can access this link from two places in your instance:

  • From the job requisition page:

  • From the application page:

To grant permissions to a Recruiting Role to see the “View Candidate Ratings” button, please work with your Implementation Partner requesting configuration change - adding feature permissions for the field interviewAssessment into your Job Requisition Template. Please note that when this permission is granted, any Operator that is participating of the Requisition will be able to view that tab. You can also review KBA 2258199 to see what configuration changes can be made by support.

If all the correct permissions have been granted and you are still not seeing the 'View Candidate Ratings' button then you need to check if at least one of the candidates on the requisition have been given an overall rating.

See in the above example that at least one candidate has done an interview and has been rated on the competencies.

However, the 'view candidate ratings' button is still missing.

This is because at least one of the candidates has not been given an overall rating. An overall rating is either a 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down'.

You will need to give an overall rating to at least one of the candidates.

Now the 'view candidate ratings' button will appear.
