A quick manual on how to properly import candidates into the system

You can download the file (template) from the link.

To start working with import, you need to fill the file correctly. Valid formats are .csv and xlsx.
Example of filling a file:

The following fields are available for automatic loading:

full_name - Candidate full name
email - Candidate email
gender - Gender
skills - Candidate skills
phone_numbers - Phone Number

date_of_birth - Date of birth
desired_salary - Expected salary
currency_code - Currency
notes - Comments
created_by_id - Recuiter who added the candidate

Please choose the comma format of the delimiters when saving.

Open Settings and go to Import.

Don't see the Settings or Import section? You may not have access to it. 🔒 Contact your system manager to find out more.

Choose the candidates download to download the desired file.

By scrolling down, you can see the download history of each file. Also, how many candidates were successfully imported into the system, were there any boot errors, or were some candidates missed due to duplication. Open the log and see why some of the entries might not import.

Attention! To avoid errors, check the correctness of filling and the formats of the next fields: date format (01.01.2021), phone (+380), name/surname, email.

In case of data filling error

Everything is fairly straightforward. There is no option to Delete previous uploaded files. You need to correct the same file. Replace the incorrect text with correct data and upload the updated file (point 3).

Duplicates will remain with the same data, the lines with errors will be updated.
