Tags in enlist are very powerful. You can use them to categorise and group together applications. Once you've tagged a few applications, you can also filter them by tags or search for them.
Here are a few examples of how you can use tags:
- Use tags to store an application's status
- Use tags to rate/score candidates
- Use tags to build an applicant pool
Use tags to store an application's status
Let's say you have a couple of interview stages in your job pipeline and you want to keep a track of applicants who have been interviewed and those who haven't.
Tags can help! You can just create two tags (for example: interviewed and pending-interview), and add them to an application when they move to that stage.
Tags are visible on a job's dashboard, so anyone on your team can look at them and understand the status of an application immediately.
Use tags to rate applicants
Want to rate applicants quickly? Tags to the rescue again! Create a few tags such as "excellent", "maybe", "poor". As you move through your job pipeline, add these tags to applications.
Since these tags are visible on the job dashboard, everyone on your team can see an application's overall rating quickly.
Use tags to build an applicant pool
Tags can also be used to build an applicant pool. Often, when you're hiring, you'll come across applications that are almost there but not quite. These can be great prospects for the future.
Instead of losing them with the rest of the pile, you can create a tag such as "future-prospect" and add that tag to the right applications.
Then, in the future, if you have another similar opening, you can just filter using the "future-prospect" tag and email everyone in a single click.
