2363466 - Application Audit Trail is showing status not chosen


The application audit trail is showing all status' even when the candidate is not moved to those status


Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the candidate list of open requisition
  2. Move candidate to a status with several sub status groups
  3. All sub- status appear in the application audit trail not just the status the candidate was moved to


"By default the application status audit trail tracks every status the candidate enters and all skipped statuses in between. If the client prefers, the audit trail can omit the skipped statuses in the display and reporting of the audit trail."
If we enable the switch we will get update only on the corresponding state information in audit trail. But if we disable "Hide skipped statuses in application audit trail" we will get updated status from beginning to till the moved status


  1. Navigate to admin tools- manage recruiting settings
  2. See Applicant Profile settings
  3. Select feature to hide skipped status in application audit trail
  4. Move candidate to another status set with multiple sub status
  5. Audit trail now shows only status selected
