Employers can utilize labels within Handshake to efficiently organize and manage their recruitment pool.
For example, labels can be used to track the progress of an applicant through the hiring process. You can assign a label to an applicant when they submit their application, and add or remove labels as the applicant progresses through the process.
Add a label
1. Click the box to the left of each candidate you want to add a label to, or click "Select all" in the table header to select all candidates. Click More, then select Add label from the dropdown.
2. In the pop-up modal, choose an existing label from the Choose existing label dropdown, or create a new label in the Create a new label field, then click the blue button Apply Label.
Note: applicants cannot view labels that are added to them.
Remove a label
Click the box to the left of each candidate you want to remove a label from, or click "Select all" in the table header to select all candidates. Click More, then select Remove label from the dropdown.
Filter using labels
Once a label has been added to applicants, you can use the filter Labels or Not Labels to manage your candidates.
- To view applicants with a specific label(s), select the label(s) from the Labels filter in the left sidebar.
- To view applicants without a specific label(s), select the label(s) from the Not Labels filter in the left sidebar.
Tip: click into the filter to view and select from all labels created by your employer.
