For Live Customers:

Below are different scenarios on why administrators would like to move a candidate to a specific step.

  • The candidate resigned and Onboarding activity is still on 2nd step (NES); administrators would like to save the data to show 'All Document Submitted' status.
  • The candidate resigned and Offboarding activity is still on 2nd step (NES); administrators would like to complete the 3rd step (OS) to finish the activity.
  • In Support Mate, search for candidate and change the "Update Status" to the correct step.
