Filtering your applicants will help you evaluate people who applied to your jobs more quickly. Learn how to effectively use filters on the Applicants tab: How do I use the sort and filter options on the Applicants tab?
If you are using your Dashboard or Jobs tab to select which applicants you would like to view, the system will apply those filters to your Applicants tab. For example: Select the Needs Review section for the job you'd like to view applicants on the Jobs tab. The filter will show only Needs Review (new) applicants under that job on your Applicants tab.
When these filters are applied, they could affect any searches you conduct from the Applicants tab and may be a reason that you'd need to reset your filters.
