3267774 - Enhanced Search Functionality for Redesigned Applicant Workbench - Recruiting Management


With the latest release b2211, the redesigned Recruiting Applicant Workbench is available for searching, filtering, and displaying applicants who have applied for specific jobs.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management - All Versions


Customers can now filter the applicants using:
  • Background elements configured in your candidate profile template. For example, previous employment, education, and so on.
  • Applicant first name and last name.
  • Fields defined in your application templates and candidate profile.
  • Keyword search in resume and cover letter.
  • Facet counts for picklist items, such as Country, where you can see the number of applicants.
For example, you can easily find the list of applicants:
  • Who currently live in New York and previously worked for the ABC organization.
  • Who have proficiency in speaking and writing in the French language.
  • Whose resume contains keywords, such as Java, Python, User Assistance, and so on.

We've redesigned the Applicant Workbench to improve the user experience as you search, filter, and display applicants from the applicant list.

You can enable the Latest Applicant Workbench from Admin Center > Manage Recruiting Settings > Enable Latest Applicant Workbench.

Note: The Latest Applicant Workbench firstly was available only for customers who have joined the Early Adopter Care (EAC) Program for Recruiting. 

This new functionality is being deployed to all customers gradually according with DC based schedule. Please find more details in the link: Reimagined Applicant Management workbench for Recruiting – Innovation Alert
