2496356 - Ability for Recruiter to set visibility options when manually adding a Candidate


How to set a candidates visibility settings when manually adding a candidate to the system.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting


Recruiters have the option to set the visibility settings for a candidate, when manually adding a candidate to the system.

 Enable this feature in provisioning by navigating to:

  1. Edit Candidate Privacy Options
  2. Enabling the option -  'Allow internal user with appropriate add candidate permission to set external candidate visibility upon manually adding a candidate'. 
  3. Save settings.

Once this setting is enabled correctly, a recruiter with permissions to manually create candidates will be able to set the visibility options on behalf of a manually added candidate. Please note that visibility settings can only be set by the recruiter at the time of account creation, and cannot be updated by the recruiter at a future date. These visibility options can be further updated by the candidate by accessing the options through their candidate profile.

Please consult your implementation partner to enable this feature or reach out to professional services.
