Dependent Criteria

for Advanced Applicant Search

Dependent Criteria are one of the two types of search criteria. When used in isolation, Dependent Criteria does not return useful searches. You must therefore include at least one Non-Filter search criterion in addition to the Dependent Criteria you select.


If you attempt to run a search without using any non-filter criteria, a message tells you that you must choose at least one non-filter search option.

2. Select one of the following options from the drop-down list: On or Before, On, or On or After.


3. Enter the Date.


4. Click the Add Criteria button to add the Application Date information to the Search Data panel.

  • If this criterion is the only item in the Search Data list, you must add at least one Non-Filter criterion.
