Interacting with opportunities
Adding Applicant / Candidate

Applicants can be directly added to an opportunity by clicking on 'View Applicants'.


Then 'Add applicant', and entering the desired applicant.



Opportunity Status

Opportunities have 5 possible statuses. Below is a brief description of each:


Draft - Opportunity will be in Draft status when it is created initially and is not made live. The draft status indicated that the opportunity is not yet live for the candidates to apply.
Open - Opportunity will be in Open status as soon as we make the opportunity Live. This status indicates that the opportunity is live for the applicants to apply.
Completed - The opportunity will be in completed status once the candidate selection is completed and the position is closed.
Cancelled - Cancelling the opportunity will cancel it in the middle of the process or as soon as the opportunity is created as per candidate requirements.
Archived - Archiving behaves similarly to hiding or deleting the opportunity. We generally archive the item if it's not needed to be in the system.


Opportunities can be searched based on keywords. This powerful feature allows you to narrow your results based on text found within the opportunity (such as Title, Description, and other key fields).


Filters on opportunities allow you to segment results based on your needs easily. This can be helpful when trying to surface jobs with specific attributes like location, status, etc. You can also save your search for quick reference in the future!


Saving your search is a great feature to improve your efficiency for searches you perform often!


Opportunity templates

Opportunity templates are designed to increase efficiency by saving frequently used opportunities for repeat use in the future. They can be used for new talent recruitment, task assignment, and contract re-evaluation, among other applications.


Templates can be created by selecting the Job opening templates in the Marketplace menu. From there, complete the necessary information and save the template. 


Saved templates will now be available when you select to create a new job opening.



Opportunity scheduling

Saved templates will now be available when you select to create a new job opening.

Scheduling of opportunities allows internal users to set a specific day or a recurring period when they would like to make a draft opportunity live. 


This action is available only in the draft status, in the ellipses dropdown menu options for the opportunity.



Once the opportunity is scheduled, it is moved from the 'Current' to the 'Scheduled' tab with scheduled status. The scheduled tab shows the details of the opportunity and also the date when it is scheduled for.



The opportunity will automatically be set to live on the specified date or the date as per the recurring period selected. It will also be moved back to the 'Current' tab, where all the active opportunities are listed.
