Avoid assigning jobs to candidates who are already placed or unavailable for a particular time period of time, by marking them as unavailable for the specified time period.
To mark the candidate as unavailable, go to the candidate's detail page and click on the "Mark Candidate as Unavailable" option.
This will give you predefined options such as one month, three months, six months, nine months, and a custom time range option.
If you choose the custom option, a calendar will pop up, and you can select the date till which the candidate will be unavailable.
After marking the candidate as unavailable, an icon will appear on their profile to indicate that they are unavailable till the selected/specified date.
You can mark candidates as unavailable in bulk from the candidate list page, by selecting the relevant records and clicking on the "Update Field" button:
You will also have the option to mark the candidate as unavailable when you update the hiring stage of the candidate to "placed".
Once a candidate is marked unavailable, they will not appear on the list of available candidates that you can assign to jobs.
To view the list of all unavailable candidates, click on the "Unavailable Candidates" option from your quick view.
Note: If the unavailable candidate is a part of any hotlist, you can still find them within the hotlists they are a part of.
This list will show the dates from which the candidate will be available again when the field "Available From" is made visible. After the unavailable period is complete, the candidate will automatically become available and will be visible in the "All Candidates" list.
