When closing an application from consideration, you are still able to take any action like any other candidate. You will also be able to move the candidate through the pipeline, however, when moving this kind of candidate, the application will not be marked anymore. This candidate will be shown with the usual instance color and the "Close From Consideration" option will be available again.This mark will not be available for reporting.

Please note that that the options "Close from consideration" and "reopen for consideration" are legacy features but will still be visible on the take action menu.
