        • Report to pull full salary info

          Hi, Is there a report that can pull the salary and salary description field? I've pulled the opportunity details report and it just has the salary field, which is no good on it's own for some of our roles. I've check our custom fields and salary description

          Hi - we're quite new to pathways and have just launched 5 for the autumn term on topics like job hunting, CVs etc. We're wondering how to measure whether they have been a success. Our ideas are: - How many students complete them (or engage in some way)
        • Pathways - show submissions in chronological order

          Hi Does anyone know if there is a way to view pathway applicants in order of application date? Currently applicants are all in a random order and it makes it difficult to keep track of new applicants so just wondered if there is a way to filter view.
