Note: Please note that the action user who forwards the applicant needs to have view permission for default status in target job requisition.

Please notice that the "Source Value" in SAC Reports will not generate any value. Please feel free to use Adhoc report instead.

Please also note that when forwarding as applicant on an evergreen job requisition, it is standard that you will see all job requisitions, not just child requisitions.

When using forwarding as applicant the requisition you are forwarding to must be publicly posted.
