Only at that time does the system ask the candidate to transfer the data from another SR.If they already have an account for your school district, then they'll have to create a new one and do the transfer at that time.Back to TopQ:I resubmitted/updated my information but it said not submitted at this time. Do I need to do something else?A:SchoolRecruiter is set up to "lock" an application once it is submitted. The candidate can update their profile at any time, but the application as submitted cannot be changed due to the electronic signature being completed.

Applicants can apply for the new posting with a few simple clicks. They do not have to enter any data unless something has changed since the last application, just save and continue. The system was designed this way to preserve the integrity of the electronic signature on the original applications.
