Duplicate Candidates are detected based on them having the same email address.
Combining will create multiple copies of the candidate’s skills, applications, attachments, marketing and referees. This ensures you don’t lose data.
If before the combine your kept candidate had empty fields and data existing in the duplicate candidates same fields, the data from the duplicates will populate the empty fields.
The data in the kept candidate fields are maintained (e.g. phone number, interview notes), the combined candidate’s data is lost.
Any User can combine Candidates.
- Open the Candidate that you want to combine the duplicates into.
If another candidate with the same email address exists, you will see an alert at the bottom on the page and a COMBINE button.
- Press COMBIN
- A pop-up appears, press YES.
The combining is complete once the text Combined appears at the bottom of your page.
