When you open a job posting that an external candidate has applied for, the Hire button on the Manage Application page is active (it is inactive when you view a job posting that an internal candidate has applied for). Clicking the Hire button changes an external applicant's status from applicant to employee in QHRnet and Quadrant Workforce.
In Version 2.7, clicking the Hire button changes a candidate's status from Applicant to Employee on the Manage Accounts page in the Admin menu. After you click the Hire button, it's grayed out for all other positions the candidate has applied for. When an external candidate creates a profile in QHRnet, a record is also created in the Applicants menu in Quadrant Workforce. When an external candidate is hired in Quadrant Workforce, their applicant profile changes to an employee profile. However, their employment information and positions must still be entered manually in Quadrant Workforce.
