Application Statuses allow you to add a custom status to your applications based on the round the application is in. This article will walk through how to apply a status to an application that is visible to the applicant.
Once you have created a status within your stage you can choose to automatically apply one status to all applications that enter that stage. This will not only apply the status to the application but it will also enable the status to be visible to the applicant on their application.
To apply a status automatically to applications that enter the stage:
There are 3 ways to apply a status manually:
This will also fire any automations that have been setup to fire based on the application moving to this stage.
In some cases, you may have multiple statuses within a single stage that you wish to apply. If this is the case you can use Automations to apply different statuses to different applications within a single stage.
For example, in some cases, after an applicant has moved through the review stage, they may need to be sent back to the application stage to make updates or corrections to their application. This action is based on a reviewer response in the reviewer form to move the application back to the application stage.
The reason we use an automation is that we do not want to apply a status to all applications in the stage, only ones that have been in the Reviewer stage and been moved back.
|Review||Reviewer has completed a Review||Reviewer Stage|
|Reviewer Form: Would you like to request more information from the Applicant?||is exactly||Yes|
|Application||Assign a Status to the Application|
|Status:||Additional Information Required|
Once you have applied a status to an application it will be visible to your applicants on their application tile.
Therefore, when the applicant logs into their account they will be able to quickly identify where their application is in the process. Using the above example we can also notify the applicants that additional information is required in their application and they will need to enter their application to complete it.
