This article covers adding a new candidate manually to your Lever environment. To learn about adding referrals, visit our help article on submitting referrals. To learn about importing multiple candidates at once, refer to our help article on bulk importing candidates

Note that Lever automatically prevents duplication of candidate profiles if a candidate applies to multiple postings with the same email address. However, when candidates are manually added to Lever it is still possible to inadvertently create duplicate profiles. For more information on managing duplicate candidates refer to our help article on merging duplicate candidate profiles
