Module 3: The Applicant Table

 As a recruiter, you might have hundreds of applicants to manage at any given time. The Applicant Table sorts applicants based on their current status and provides an easy way to view and organize all of your applicants in one place.

By the end of this module, you’ll be able to:

  • Quickly view all applicants across your workflow and see their progress in any stage
  • Sort by idle days to re-engage applicants
  • Customize your applicant table view



The Applicant table provides a view of your entire hiring process. You can scroll across different stages to see current applicants in it.
