Note: In case you are using Equalture without an ATS integration, we offer a pipeline to manage your candidates for each vacancy. If you have integrated Equalture with your ATS, you will probably use the pipeline in your ATS to manage your candidate pool. 

How to navigate to your candidate pipeline

  1. Go to your dashboard
  2. Go to 'Jobs'
  3. Select a specific job to visit the candidate pipeline for this vacancy

Once you’ve selected a job, this is what you'll see:

As you can see, the pipeline is divided in different stages. For this job we have decided to use the following stages: Applied --> Round 1 --> Round 2 --> Round 3 --> Offered Contract --> Hired. These are the stages of your recruitment process, but you're able to edit them as you desire.

Once a candidate has applied to your job opening, you'll find the candidate in the stage ‘Applied’

In the candidate pipeline we offer the following functionalities:

  • View a candidate’s matching profile
  • Download a candidate’s matching profile
  • Change the stage of a candidate in the pipeline

View a candidate’s matching profile

When moving your cursor over a specific candidate, you will see these three buttons:

Click on the eye-button (middle one) to view a candidate’s matching profile. 

Please note: if you have activated the 'Blind Hiring Feature' you won't see the candidate's personal details in the stage 'Applied'. This article explains how that works.

Download a candidate’s matching profile

Now that you’re viewing a candidate’s matching profile in your dashboard, you can also decide to download this profile. You will see these three buttons on top of your screen:

Click on the download-button (left one) to download a candidate’s matching profile.

You can now change the stage of your candidate into two different ways:

  • Click on the thumbs down button to reject a candidate
  • Click on the thumbs up button to send a candidate to the next stage of your application process

Once you’ve clicked on one of these two buttons, you have to confirm your decision. After confirming your decision a candidate will automatically be updated on his/her new application status.

You can also change the stage of your candidate when viewing his/her matching profile. You will see these three buttons on top of your screen:

Here you will also see the thumbs up- and thumbs down button. From this point it works the same as described above. Depending on whether you've activated the email templates connected or not (to the stages of your application process) the applicant will receive an automated email as well when their status changes in your pipeline.

So that’s it. Now you know how to go to your different pipelines, view a candidate’s matching profile and change the stage of candidate’s application. You can see here how the candidate application flow works.
