Being able to track and trust your candidates’ opportunity dates means that your Talent Operations or Analytics teams can reliably:

  • Measure velocity in the interview process relative to each opportunity.
  • Measure the total number of times a candidate has applied to a position or series of positions over a period in time.
  • Track the effectiveness of campaigns that cannot be easily tagged (e.g. big employment branding push, funding announcements, etc.).
  • Conduct cohort analysis based on opportunity dates.

Opportunity dates are key for calculating time to hire, which can be a strong indicator of your organization's talent acquisition efficiency. Read more in our help article on configuring the time to hire calculation in Visual Insights.

If you want to edit opportunity dates later on, you can do so by clicking on the dates in the job section of an opportunity.
