2810484 - Is it Possible to Filter by Candidate That Have Applied to a Job Requisition - Recruiting Management


  • Is it possible to filter by candidate that have already been applied to a Job Requisition? 
  • Is it possible to move these candidates between the Applicant Status of the Job Requistion that they applied?


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management - All Versions

  • Candidate Search


In the current system, inside the Candidate Search functionality, if the user is an operator of a Job Requisition, s/he can search for candidates that applied to one or more Job Requisitions by entering the Job Requisition information, however you must enter the Job Requisition information and be an operator or have access in other way. It's not possible to search for candidates that had just applied, without mentioning a Job Requisition in the filters. This overpass the permissions since only users with access to specific Requisitions will receive information about the specific Requisitions' Candidates.

Also, you will not be able to move the candidate among the Application Status in the Candidate Search, you can only forward candidates to Job Requisitions, which will redirect the candidate to a status already default in the Recruiting Settings.

If you would like to have this functionality added to the system, please provide feedback to the Product Management team via the Customer Community at, where other customers will also have the opportunity to support your functionality request. For detailed steps on how to raise an enhancement request please follow the Knowledge Base Article 2090228 on "How to submit an enhancement request".
