Please note: In the coming months, we will be migrating all existing customers to our updated user interface and data model. Because of this, you may be viewing a help article that is not applicable to the version of Lever you are using! If your team began using Lever before July 15th, 2019, if you manage candidate profiles in Lever, or if the screenshots below do not match what you see in your account, please visit this article for information that is most applicable to you.

In Lever, a candidate may be considered for multiple opportunities at one time. All of a candidate's opportunities will be linked, but each can be moved independently through the stages of your hiring pipeline. When you change an opportunity's stage, that new stage history will only be applied to the specific opportunity you've chosen to take action on.

Moving opportunities independently through your pipeline means that all hiring activity will be attributed to each individual opportunity so that you can accurately report on all activities.


A candidate will have a separate profile for each opportunity, but all of these opportunities will be linked to ensure that users are always aware of any other jobs the candidate is, or has been, considered for.


In addition to displaying linked opportunities, users will always be made aware of any hiring activity on a candidate's linked opportunities, without having to navigate between them. Important context related to other opportunities, such as Nurture campaigns, interviews, offers, feedback, and notes, will be displayed in order to give users the most complete view of a candidate's history.



If you notice any duplicate candidate profiles, you can merge them.
