'Cancel entire DoA' will cancel the assignment completely, stopping all selection processes. This cannot be undone!

Click 'Applied'

Under 'Candidates', click the 'Applied' tab to see all candidates who applied to your online DoA. In the list you will see candidates' basic information.

The better a candidate matches your requirements the higher the AI score.
