Authorizing CATS

Distinguish between Candidatees, Contacts and Companies before proceeding to the configuration page.

You have the ability to disable default mappings and reuse them in the custom mappings section.

Customizable Field Mapping

You are able to customize the default field mappings and you are also able to add your own field mappings. Any user-created mapping is also often referred to as the "Custom (Field) Mapping".
