How can we improve Plum?

Provide an "un-shortlist" button on candidate profile.

"There appears to be no way to un-shortlisting a shortlisted candidate. I have become uncertain about a shortlisted candidate, but I am not ready to pass on the candidate altogether. How do I move them back to undecided."

We’ve improved this situation! Let us know what you think.

In our recent update we’ve changed the language and added a “Reject” button in red with a thumbs down next to it. We hope you that this improves your experience and gives you an ability to “un-shortlist” as you’ve requested.

Once a candidate is in “rejected” you can still change your mind to “To Be Reviewed” through a similar button at the top of the candidate’s profile.

    Here is a work-around:

    To "un-shortlist" a "shortlisted" candidate.
    1. Select "pass",
    2. then select "undecided".

    When Plum's team built this functionality, the belief was that a dedicated button would likely not be used much (if at all), and would add clutter.

    If you feel this process is too cumbersome and would prefer a "unshortlist" button, please upvote this idea.
