Is it possible to unlink the referral ownership from a candidate who is referred by an employee?


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


It is impossible to change the referrer or remove the Referred By (Employee Referral Information) from the candidate's job application.

Please consider creating a new candidate profile, if the current referral information is incorrect. If the DPCS 2.0 feature is enabled, the admin tool 'Anonymize Candidate Profiles' can be used to anonymize the incorrect candidate profile and job application.

Note: The candidate profile with referral information cannot be merged into another profile because the referral information will also be inherited by the merged profile.
