Please note: We will be rolling an update to candidate access for Limited Team Members to our customers gradually over the coming weeks. Once you have this update, any user with access to a job posting will manage whether they follow a posting from the posting itself in Lever’s Jobs section. Additionally, Super Admins, Admins, and Team Members will be able a given user’s followed postings from the Team settings page.
Often, multiple recruiters and hiring managers are collaborating to recruit, vet, and close candidates for a position. To make communication and collaboration among stakeholders even more seamless, you have the ability to “Follow” specific postings.
Following a posting provides an easy way for multiple users to keep tabs on all candidates who have applied to a job. This ensures that everyone involved in the hiring process for a specific posting is in sync and up to speed at all times.
If you are a follower of a specific posting, you automatically become a follower of every candidate who applies to that posting on your website or is applied to that posting internally. While every job posting has one owner and one hiring manager, there can be multiple “followers.” Adding followers to a specific posting can be done easily from within the posting itself:
Now that you’ve chosen to follow a posting or two, you’ll see each of the candidates associated with the position(s) when you filter the Candidates list by the “Followed candidates” filter. You’ve been automatically added as a follower of every candidate assigned to this posting!
Lastly, you’ll receive one daily email with information about new candidates who have applied to postings that you’re following. You’re automatically subscribed to these emails, but they can be turned off in the “My Account” tab in Settings.
