This feature enables the option to expose different application fields, at different points in the application process.
Some companies have their applicants complete a quick initial application (stage 1). If the recruiter reads the resumé, and would like to interview the candidate, they change the applicant status. As a result, an email is sent to the applicant requesting the completion of the remaining application (stage 2). At the same time interview team can see different information in different status, for example, salutation in New Applicant status or Sign On Bonus in Offered Status.
In a multistage environment, all required fields for status must be filled out before a user can successfully change the applicant’s status to any In Progress status. In other words, if one of the mandatory fields is not completed, it is not possible to move candidate to next status. That is also valid for any mandatory fields that have to be completed by recruiting operators. An applicant can be moved to a disqualification status at any point, regardless of whether or not required fields are completed.
