This status is not editable anymore. We introduced oData Services for some NHA entities. MDF oData Services inherit their properties for read, create and update from their parents objects, that's why we needed to set OnboardingProcess to API editable. As we didn't want to make status fields editable via external oData, we decided to make the status fields read-only on purpose.

Most of the customer used to get rid of ToDos in the past.


Customer has to clear the To-do list item's by completing the new hire activity for the candidate or from Via Import and Export Job they can change the status.

5) Search for the candidate to whom you want to cahnge the status

6) Click on Export 

7) Again Go to admin Center and Search for Monitor Job

8) Download the exported file (MDFZIPExport_OnboardingProcess)
