If a candidate is designated the admission decision of "Cold" — this means that there has been no movement on this candidate's decision and that the trail has "gone cold". To set this decision, perform the following steps:

  1.  Go to the Admission Candidate record via a Find Candidates query.
  2. Update the Admission Decision to ‘Cold’ on the General Tab.
  3. Click Update.

Having this decision automatically updates the role of the Admissions Candidate from ‘Applicant’ to ‘Applicant – Former’. This should be used if an applicant completes their application, receives the Admission Decision ‘Accepted’, but never replies to the school.
