Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting > Select a requisition pending your approval
  2. Set Recruiter as someone who is already in a recruiting team role
  3. Send Req to next step
  4. See error that Recruiter is a required field even though it was already filled


  • This is an expected behavior because if he/she is part of recruiting team, then they have the same access as a recruiter.
  • Therefore, the system will not allow you to add them as a primary recruiter since they already have that role.
  • So, you will need to remove this user from the recruiting team in order to proceed with adding them as the recruiter and sending req to next step.
