What do "Hot" and "Inactive" mean?
CATS has a designation for your record types called "hot." You can apply whatever meaning you'd like to these.
Hot records, whether they be job orders, contacts, companies or candidates, will appear as orange in your listings to set them apart from the others.
There is another designation for your candidate records called "inactive." A candidate marked as inactive will still function much the same way an active candidate does. They will show up in searches, can be emailed, added to jobs and have their status changed.
There are two key differences between an active candidate and an inactive one. The first is that they will have a line through their name in the grid, so it is readily apparent that they are marked as inactive. There is also a filter option on the grid, to provide an easy way of excluding these candidates from your searches.
