SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


Candidates do not receive e-mail notifications when they are forwarded to requisitions. Forwarded candidates are not considered applicants; therefore certain functionalities are limited. For instance, only candidate profile data (not application data) is available on the application record, no data is reportable, the requisition does not appear in the candidate’s Jobs Applied portlet, the comments functionality is not available yet and candidates cannot be dispositioned.


The comments functionality will become available when the Candidate applies for the job or is added to the requisition using "Add to Requisition" button (only with Late-stage application - please refer to 2081317).
