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.


The Applicant Table provides a view of your entire hiring process. You can scroll across different stages to see current applicants in it. Simply click the stage boxes at the top of the Applicant Table to toggle between different stages.
