In Faculty Search, all the applicatons to a given position appear listed on one page. We call this the Applicant List.
The list of applicants for a position is often quite long, but we provide you with tools that will help you organize your work by allowing you to customize how the list or applicants is sorted and what information is displayed. You can also save and recall your searches and customized views of the list so you can save your work and return to it later.
This article explains the tools we provide to help you sort, organize and manage the applications for your position.
