When multiple candidates' retention timers have expired, you can delete their data in bulk all at once. In this article, we'll cover how to delete personal data for multiple candidates and / or prospects on Greenhouse Recruiting.

To delete candidates' personal data in bulk, click Candidates on your 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, select Data due to be deleted from the GDPR Status dropdown menu.

Confirm the Rejected and GDPR data due to be deleted filters appear at the top of the page. Click the X next to the Active filter to remove this default filter from the list of candidates / prospects.

Note: You may also need to remove the default Open Jobs filter.

With your list of candidates / prospects filtered, click Bulk Actions at the top of the page.

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

From the subsequent box, click Delete Candidates' Personal Data.

Click Yes, Delete Data.

Note: Deleting a candidate's personal data is a permanent action that cannot be undone.
