  1. Select the candidate's name.
  2. Click Delete.

Note: By using the Delete Candidate feature, Candidate Profile / Application and Offer Detail data is not permanently purged, but anonymized.

There is currently no way to Mass Delete Candidates. The Delete Candidate feature only allows a single candidate to be deleted at once. This is a product limitation.
