How to Create and Manage Candidate Statuses and Sources
Last Updated:

Candidate Statuses in Beamery allow you to track the status of a candidate’s progress through your recruiting processes. Candidate Source allows you to track from where a candidate was sourced. Both of these fields come with a set of default options when you begin to use Beamery, which can be edited, removed or added to, in order to best fit your organization’s processes. 

Please note that Statuses and Sources can only be added, edited and removed from Beamery by users with Admin or Super Admin permission levels.
