Delete Candidates' Personal Data in Bulk


In this article, we will cover how to delete personal data for multiple candidates and/or prospects using Greenhouse Recruiting's bulk action feature. If you need to delete the personal data for multiple candidates because their data retention timer has lapsed, click All Candidates on the navigation bar.


From the All Candidates page, expand the Profile Details filter panel on the left-hand side.


Use the Profile Details filter panel to select Rejected from the Status dropdown menu. Additionally, click the checkbox to the right of GDPR data due to be deleted.


Note: You will also need to remove the active filter that is applied to the list of candidates/prospects by default.

When your list of candidates have been filtered by the appropriate requirements, click Bulk Actions.


Click Select All to choose all candidates on the filtered list and click Edit Selected (#) when finished.


From the subsequent dialog box navigate to the Action header and click Delete Candidates' Personal Data.


Review all the pre-selected personal data fields that will be deleted for candidates included in the bulk action. When ready, click Delete Data
