The candidate Activity Feed is an itemized list of public events/actions that have occurred for a particular candidate in your Greenhouse Recruiting account. In this article, we will provide a brief overview of the candidate Activity Feed for a non-private candidate, including the types of events/actions that can be audited through the Activity Feed. 

Note: In order to access the Activity Feed for a private candidate, a Greenhouse user will need to have Job Admin permission levels or above, and who can also create and view private candidates.  

To view a candidate's Activity Feed, navigate to a candidate's profile and click Activity Feed on the toolbar.


To filter or search the candidate's activity feed, use the fields at the top of the panel.


Note: When using the Search field, Greenhouse Recruiting will only show results from Notes, Scorecards, and Emails.

The Activity Feed will contain the following types of records:

Activity Description

Notes Any candidate notes added to the candidate's profile.

Any scorecards submitted for the candidate.

Emails Any emails sent to the candidate.
