Managing Applicant Lists in TAM


Applicant lists are manually-constructed groups of applicants that recruiters can use to facilitate the recruiting process. Recruiters can add applicants to a list and then perform tasks for one, several, or all applicants on the list at the same time.

Process Considerations:

  • Only TA Coordinators and Recruiters have access to applicant lists.
  • Lists can be public or private.
  • The creator of an applicant list is the owner of the list. The list owner is the only user with access to private lists.
  • Anyone with access to the applicant list pages has access to public lists.
  • Anyone with access to a list can view the list, take actions on the applicants, add applicants to the list, and view primary list information (the list name, its active/inactive status, and whether the list is public), however, only the list owner can update the primary list information.
