Assigning Groups of Applicants

If you want to assign groups of applicants simultaneously, there are a few ways of accomplishing this.

Assigning Applicants via Saved Views

Saved Views are filters that allow you to capture the applicants who meet a specific set of criteria. Once you have a Saved View, you can assign all the applicants in it to the reviewers of your choice.
