3082523 - Anonymized Applications appearing as "New Applications" on the pipeline - Recruiting Management


Purged Candidates that had the application anonymized and were on "Auto-disqualified" status are showing as "New Applications" inside the Job Requisition.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management 


This transition of the Applicant within the pipeline is performed by the system automatically once a disqualify Pre-Screening question is changed to no longer disqualify applications. The method of using questions to disqualify is what sets Candidates to "Auto-disqualified" status, culminating later in the purge of this application (accordingly to the Purge Rule set) since they are considered as inactive users. When such criteria of disqualifying question is changed, system understands that all of those auto-disqualified applications are now able to apply again, since those questions are no longer disqualifying. It does not consider that they are anonymized, just set them as "New Applications". 


This behavior is already being investigated by Software Engineering Team to provide a fix so will be possible to avoid having Anonymized to return to New Applications status.
