  •  Once the pop up comes up you can use the navigation link present in the pop up which will take you  to job requisition details page where you can edit the status and change it.


2) Workaround 2

  1. Make the field id "start" and "end" as non-Required fields in the Job Requisition template (XML)
  2. Then you can change the status of teh requisition from Candidate Workbench without any error Pop-up.
