  • Boolean search for skills and experience
  • Bulk actions to organize candidates and maintain their engagement
  • Tagging to narrow down the list for exactly the right skills

Keep detailed records, automatically

The candidate timeline records every action that’s taken with a candidate, providing a full audit trail of their experience and your process. See exactly when actions were taken and stay up to date on what’s next. Interview feedback, file uploads, notes and every action is logged so you can reduce errors and improve accountability.
