Source 

This filter is shown in the title bar of the Candidate section and is the source of the Temp Candidates displayed in the grid. Use the ‘SOURCE’ drop down to select either All Candidates or select a set of search results.
Note:
The only saved search results available will be from the current user and be ordered by latest first.

When All Candidates is selected, Candidates will be displayed using the following rules:

  • When availability of a candidate is unknown then the administrator setting is applied, whether Assume Available, Assume Unavailable or Preferences. 
  • When no shifts are present or all the shifts displayed are filled, no candidates are displayed in the bottom pane.

The Candidate cells displayed in the Candidate pane will be coloured according to their availability for the expanded job:

Green – Can be booked into any shift

Yellow – Can be booked into some, but not all the shifts displayed above 

Red – Can’t be booked into any shift

Please see full description of rules in the Candidate Availability shift booking rules article.

When a set of search results is selected, Candidates will be displayed using the following rules:

  • Only Temp Candidates from the saved search results will be displayed.
  • All Temp Candidates from the search result will be displayed in the pane regardless of their availability.
  • Any automatic filtering of the Candidate list based on an expanded job will not take place. Note: Manually applied filters e.g. Qualification will filter the records in the results set and not reload all candidates.

The Candidate cells displayed in the Candidate pane will be coloured according to their availability for the expanded job:

Green – Can be booked into any shift

Yellow – Can be booked into some, but not all the shifts displayed above
