A candidates status is dependent on the completion of the Checklist steps and the Milestones set for each.

All the steps in the Checklist must be completed or waived in order for the Candidates Status to change to the correct Status they are actually in. For example if you have 4 Checklist Items within an Applicant Milestone, then all 4 Checklist Items will need to be completed or waived in order for the Candidate to change into the next status of Decision.
