This article will explain in how to configure the activity tracking dashboard, its current limitations, and known defects.

Activity Tracking gives the Recruiting User the ability to “follow” up to 100 existing candidates. By following the candidate, the users feed will display specific actions that the followed candidates have completed. The actions will appear on the feed with the most recent event showing at the top. From the feed, users can navigate to the candidates profile and take actions such as add the candidate to a talent pool or email campaign. Events that will appear on the feed include:

  • Candidate Logs In to the Career Site
  • Candidate Completes a Data Capture Form
  • Candidate Saved a Draft of a Job application
  • Candidate Abandons Job Application
  • Candidate Applies to a Job
