Reproducing the Issue

Login to instance

Go to Reporting/Analytics> Create report using Recuiting V2

Select columns including 'Candidate Type when Hired' from Application table


Run the report

You will notice that there is a candidate in Hired Status but Candidate type when Hired column is blank eventhough there is a candiate is Hired status



Hired status is not configured correctly.


Navigate to Admin Centre> Edit Applicant Configuration Settings> Select Status-Set> Click on Hired Status> Check if Hireable Option is selected as 'Hired' or not.


Hireable Options flag "Hired" is only considered as a Hired status in actual. Hence, change the Hireable option to "Hired".

Reporting will still not pull 'Candidate Type when Hired' columns data for the old candidates in Hired status. Because when candidates were moved initially, this status was not set/falgged as hired. 

Only option to show those candidates in Ad hoc reporting is moving the candidate back to one step prior and then moving back to “Hired” status.

After making above change, now move a candidate to the Hired status and run the Report. You will notice "Candiadte Type When Hired" column pulling data for all candidates who got hired after correcting the status.
