Removing/Archiving/Deleting candidates in all environments


On OutMatch Assessment AT platform, Brad has added himself as a candidate to the Chicago Cubs – can we remove him from this account as an invited candidate?

Is there a way I can do this as an outmatch admin?

    I have a few clients recently ask about this - the ability to delete a candidate. Here are spome reasons why they want to delete candidates:

    1) Candidate applied but ended up withdrawing

    2) Candidate information entered was incorrect (wrong email, incorrect spelling in name)

    Hi Tim! Which clients explicitly? Noting this helps us track market-based evidence :)

    Separate scope: Archiving (retaining candidate data in analytics) and Deleting (removal of candidate data from analytics)

    Team Schostak - Applebee's, Del Taco, MOD Pizza, and Olga's Kitchen - recently has requested the ability to delete/archive/hide reports and scores for their newly hired MUMs from view.

    A note regarding the information in the small-feature backlog page:  In the case of our most recent outreach from Team Schostak, it may be preferable for only Hiring Admins to be able to unarchive the candidate.

    How can we make sure that deleting candidates won't affect the analytics part... If a client deletes an interview (Wepow) it would delete all candidates and it won't be reflected in the numbers
