Use Tasks to find applicants with a particular Task status or Task.
Some other ways that can be used to locate an applicant is via Journals (if it is known when something was done by the applicant, see Journals for more information), Rankings (when dealing with applicants based on their Ranking for a specific Course/Programme, see Rankings for more information), Tables (when a Table is being used (see Tables for more information).
Note: For applicants who have applied for multiple terms, it is essential to know the specific term under which their application is organized.
