Settings and Permissions for Merge Candidate
Within Hiring Team Roles, Administrators can define which roles can merge candidates.
Where a user does not have permissions to view all applications, that individual cannot make an informed merge decision - i.e. customers which use Access Groups. The user cannot merge, and is informed that an administrator needs to complete the action.
Please find more information about Merge Candidates in the FAQ page (here).
