To see applicant system updates, follow these steps:

STEP 1: Log in to your Workstream account.

STEP 2: Go to Applicants.

STEP 3: Select the applicant you want to check on.

STEP 4: An overview of the applicant's profile will appear on the right side, go to the Messages tab.

STEP 5: A line divides the notifications sent to the applicant per hiring stage. This has APPLICANT SYSTEM UPDATE labeled on it. To expand and view, simply click on the icon.

NOTE: You will also see in the Applicant system update whether an applicant was automatically or manually moved to another stage. If it's the latter, the name of the user who performed the action will be provided in the update.
