There is no way that Recruiting Users can edit the name of the candidate in the Application Page.

The Edit candidate snapshot feature will enable 'Update' button for Recruiting user to edit info like Email ID, phone number, CV and permissioned profile fields. But they cannot change the name of the candidate on the Application Page.



In Single Stage Application environment, there is no way to edit the name on Application Page.


However in Multi-Stage Application environment, only the candidate can edit the name in application page.

Candidate can login to the career site and go to 'Job Management'.

Here the candidate will get the option of Edit Application.


The First Name and Last Name is application can be edited from here provided they are cofigured in the Application Template.


After clicking on Update button the value updates in Application Page.



Note: To get Multi-Stage Application enabled for your instance, please reach out to SAP Partners as per the KBA #2258199
