Reproducing the Issue

  1. Candidate is trying upload an attachment to the resume field on the application
  2. The resume upload appears to have been succesful and a green tick is present.
  3. A moment later it is noticed that the uploaded resume has dissappeared and the field is now blank.


The Engineering team have written a code fix which is aimed to be delivered as part of a patch release on 27th March 2020. It is to be noted that this patch date may be subject to change.

There is a workaround available through the means of disabling the resume parsing feature.

This can be achieved by accessing Provisioning -> Company Settings or can also be carried out in the UI by navigating to Admin Center -> Manage Recruiting Settings.
