Creating and Managing Tasks
Using tasks effectively can help keep your whole team moving through the recruiting process efficiently and effectively. You can automate tasks as a part of your workflow, or you can assign tasks on the fly when something unexpected pops up. Assign tasks to your team or even yourself to keep organized.
You can create four different kinds of tasks:
- Tasks related to a particular applicant.
- Tasks related to a particular job.
- General tasks.
- Tasks assigned to another person.
Automating Tasks in Workflows
- Select the job to which you want to add a customized task.
- Click Edit Job.
- Click the Hiring Workflow tab.
- Click Add next to the appropriate stage.
- Select Task.
- Enter the task Name.
- Add in any notes to give your hiring managers specific instructions.
- Select the recipient(s) from the drop-down menu.
- Click Add Task to have it start automating!
Once the task is a part of your workflow, whenever you move a candidate into a stage with a task it will generate a pop-up reminding you that this task is going to be assigned, and giving you the option to deselect the task if necessary. If you assigned the task to another recipient you "Select when Triggered" this is where you can select your recipients.
