Do you need to remove a candidate's association with a job opening? Maybe you linked them to the incorrect Job Opening for example.
Do Not Delete their Candidate Record!
This is why:
Deleting the Candidate instead of the Applicant has been one of the common issues HR/Recruiting Manager encountered in Lanteria. This results in the Candidate record/profile being deleted from the system entirely, they 'disappear' or become 'grey' and 'unclickable'. That is because the "Applicants" and "Candidates" are two different lists:
- Candidates list is where the actual candidate details and history are stored
- Applicants list links the 'Candidate' to the 'Job Opening' - like a bridge. You can have multiple applicant records associated with any 1 candidate record
That means, when a Candidate applies to multiple different job openings, they will have that number of applicant records, but still only 1 candidate record.
How to steps:
Here are the steps on how to delete an Applicant from a Job Opening/Vacancy:
Go to Site contents > Applicants and open the applicant record linked to a specific job opening, then select Delete Item
