Elements of the User Workspace

Your Tasks

This widget contains the number of outstanding items listed below. By clicking each item, the user will be directed to the page where they can complete each of these items. If a user has no outstanding items for a certain task, a green checkmark will be displayed indicating this. Depending on permissions, some of these may be hidden.

  • Feedback to complete → Interviews page
  • Applicants to review → Fast Resume Review
  • Opportunities that are expiring soon (GDPR only) → Filtered Candidates page
  • Opportunities that need to be anonymized soon (GDPR only) → Filtered Candidates page
  • Opportunities that are missing consent (GDPR only) → Filtered Candidates page
  • Open data requests → Visual Insights Compliance Dashboard

Lever User Workspace Your Tasks section

Note that the number displayed for Fast Resume Review may be different from the one that is displayed on the Candidates page. This is because the number there varies based on what filters a user decides to apply (i.e. owned by me/all).

Lever Fast Resume Review

Also with Fast Resume Review, the count on the Candidates page will include snoozed candidates but will not surface them when the user is actually going through the Fast Resume Review process. As such, the Lever User Workspace is configured to to display the number of applicants a user owns without including snoozed candidates in the count in order to provide a more clear and consistent process.

Key indicators

Key indicators are counts for main areas of ownership (or following) for the individual user. Clicking each item will take you to the corresponding filtered page. For candidates, the number will be a sum of all active candidates across sections. For jobs and requisitions, the number will be for those that are open.

Clicking Review Approval will open the following in a new tab: 

  • Postings → opens the job posting Approvals tab
    • The user needs the 'Manage profiles and associated postings' and the 'Create and edit postings' permissions.

    • The user needs requisitions enabled and the 'Create and edit requisitions' permission.
