Updating your Referral's Status notifies your referrer on the progress of the job.
You can customize your statuses to fulfill your businesse's needs. It's simple! When you are in Reactor Configuration, go to Status Categories. Create a New Status and you are good to go!
It is important that you set the behavior of the status correctly. Each behavior describes what your status will do.
For example, when you update to the default status "Got the Job", your Accepted Referral Bonus rate will then apply. However, if the status was still set to "New" that rate would not apply.
You can view the current referral status in two places. You can find it in your messages, with the note you left. Or it will be located under the Admin Actions in the Status category.
