People List

The People list collects all the candidates that you can access. From this list, you can:

  • monitor the status of many candidates,
  • filter candidates by location, experience, and other details,
  • search for candidates by name, email, and other key terms,
  • share, reassign, and comparing multiple candidates in a single action.

The actions you can take on the People list will depend on whether or not you have full access to each candidate's job. Thus, if you're assigned different  hiring team roles on different jobs, your available actions may differ from candidate to candidate.
