2728269 - Application List Page view behavior when changing candidate status on candidate application


On the candidate application page when recruiting user changes the candidate's status and save it, then the screen will sometimes auto change to the next candidate on the application list page.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to recruiting module.
  2. Go to candidate application after selecting the requisition.
  3. Select the view of your choice and change the application status.
  • View Active” view:

When current (selected) candidate's status is changed, the user stays on this current/ same candidate

Exception: If changing application to “Disqualified” status, then go to the "next" candidate (same behavior as “View All”)

  • View All” view or “Specific Pipeline Status” view:

When current (selected) candidate's status is changed, the system selects the next candidate on the list.


This is an expected system behavior.
