2397128 - Synchronisation between Candidate Profile and Application - Recruiting Management

Symptom

- How can I populate fields on the application from the Candidate Profile?

- Is there a synchronisation between candidate and application data? How does it work?

Reproducing the Issue

1. Fill candidate profile data

2. Apply for a job requisition

3. Fill application data

Resolution

When using the same field ID and configuration on both the Application XML and Candidate Profile XML you can pre-populate application data from the Candidate Profile.
Data syncs from the Candidate Profile to the Application only at the point where the candidate initially applies to a job. Subsequent updates to the Candidate Profile will not update the Application.
Data syncs from the Application back to the Candidate Profile at any time if it is changed on the Application; the system assumes the most recent updates should always be fed back to the Candidate Profile.
