Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Go to Recruiting > Candidates tab
  2. In the top right corner, search for any candidate on the Quick Search
  3. None result will return



It's known if you have enabled "Find candidates where" in Set up Internal Candidate Search, the Quick Search won't work, spite of the fact the functionality should only reflect upon Internal Candidates.


Software Engineering has already acknowledged this scenario and a fix code will be deployed within 1911b release. For now, if you need the Quick Search functionality working, you must disable the option in Set up Internal Candidate Search.
