If you don't have access to Provisioning, you can and or edit the read/write permission for any field using Manage Templates:

  2. After selecting the desired template, click in General Settings on the right column
  3. Select Application Status configuration > "Field Permissions Defined.Click to modify"

A new window will open with all defined permission blocks.

Here you can either change an existing block or create your own.

When creating a new one you can define which fields will be added and the type of permission (read or write) for specific job requisition statuses.

You can also select specific roles like a recruiter, candidate, etc, to read/write on the selected fields.
