There are no automatic notifications when candidate is for example moved to next stage. To check the activities, simply click on your left menu Team activities or when you can check the activities inside the particular candidates profile (blue arrow).
Can I see the exact time and date that I uploaded a candidate to TalentLyft?
Yes, every event or comment in TalentLyft is date stamped. Simply roll over the date to see the exact details.
Should I move candidates to the next stage when the client wants to interview them?
We consider hiring process collaborative one so you are able to move candidates but in order to be on the same page with your client, you should discuss with them what exactly you should do.
What are comments for?
As an external recruiter, you can use comments to add additional details about a candidate which might not feature on a resume. For example; their notice period, interview availability etc. You can also attach a file to a comment, like a portfolio or interview assignment or add emoji. This way you can discuss the candidate with the client.
What if I can’t find my invitation – or I haven’t received one?
If you’re unable to find the email, check your spam folder, and your deleted email folder. Still can’t find it? Ask your client to delete you from the system and resend the invitation.
