Applicant Preview: See a high-level summary of your applicant by expanding their preview pane. You may also wish to open more than one candidate at a time, or even open all panes. From the expanded preview pane, users have the option to download the applicant’s resume, view their profile, or view their full application (cover letter and screening questions).
