Manage tags and source tags

Use tags to better organize your candidates and jobs.

Updated over a week ago

Your team will deal with a range of candidates as well as positions. Good recruitment teams not only hire fast, but they go one step further and tag each candidate. Over time, you'll gather valuable information about every single candidate and position - and it will all be easily searchable later. 

By tagging your jobs, as well as your candidates, and sharing your findings, you can make sure the right feedback is available to the right people in your company.

Manage your tags

Visit Settings on the left menu > Workflow > Tags & Sources. You will see all the tags used in your company account. You can sort these tags in alphabetical and reverse alphabetical order, as well as by number of candidates with that tag.

You can see your tags for candidates, jobs, and sources.

See all candidates with a tag

Click the number of a tag to see all candidates having that tag.

Create a new tag

One way to create a new tag is to first click the '+ New' icon. In the popup window, give your tag a name or use an emoji if you’d like. When you're done, click Add

How to edit or delete a tag

You can easily edit a tag by visiting Settings > Workflow > Tags & Sources. Then, just select the pencil icon next to the tag. 

Or if you don’t need a tag anymore, select the check box to the left of the tag's name and then and press the Delete button which appears above the tags list. You can select multiple tags to delete in bulk.

Important: When you delete a tag/Source tag, you permanently delete all of its data in Recruitee.

Merge tags

Click the checkboxes next to the tags you want to merge, select the merge button which appears above the tags list, and type in the name of the new tag. Click 'Merge' to merge the tags together. The candidates with the old tags will be updated with the new merged tag name.

Important: You can only merge the same kind of tags - candidate tags with candidate tags, job tags with job tags, and source tags with source tags.
