2365635 - Hide Skipped Statuses in Application Status Audit Trail - Recruiting Management


Candidate application audit trail is showing skipped status. When a candidate is moved from one status to another status that is not the one directly after the current status, all the statuses along the pipeline that the candidate has skipped are being shown in the Application Status Audit Trail. For example, the candidate is moved from status 2 (New) to status 8 (Interview), and all the statuses in between (3,4,5,6,7) are being shown in the Application Status Audit Trail.

  1. Admin Center
