2081900 - Error: Drag and Drop Candidate - Recruiting


  • Why can't I move (drag and drop) a candidate to a status that I can see select?

Error Message

  • You do not have permission to move the candidate.


  • Recruiting Management.


  • Admin Tools -> Edit Applicant Status Configuration. Some status are required.


  • One simple setting to check is whether there are required statuses in the pipeline.
    For example; status A, Status B and status C. I cannot move candidate from status A to C because status B is required.

  • Select Candidate -> Action -> Move Forward. In the pop up window, you will see only one step forward that you can select.
