When a resume, cover letter, or other document is added for a candidate, it will appear on their candidate profile. Since users may have different access levels, Greenhouse Recruiting checks the following criteria when to know whether a user can view an attachment:

  • Attachment type 
  • User permissions
  • Attachment settings (for the Document type attachment only)

Locate a candidate's attachments

You can find all of the candidate's attachments in the Documents section of the Application tab in the right panel.

The grid below outlines whether or not different users can see the different attachment types on a candidate's profile.
