@-mentioning a user in a note
Notes are added directly to a candidate’s profile. Once you have selected an opportunity, you can add a note by typing into the field at the top of the profile editor. To @-mention another Lever user, type the "@" symbol followed by the user's name. A small pop-over will appear, from which you can select the user you wish to mention.
Proceed to type your note as you normally would, and click the Add Note button.
||Keep in mind that notes appear holistically on a candidate’s profile. This means that if a candidate has more than one opportunity in Lever, notes from all opportunities will be listed in the story on the candidate’s profile in reverse chronological order.|
How notes appear to @-mentioned users
The @-mentioned user will receive a notification in Lever which they can access by clicking the bell icon next to their avatar.
The @-mentioned user will also receive an email with note. If the @-mentioned user replies to the email, their response will be added as a comment on the note. From the email, the @-mentioned user can also click to open the candidate's profile in Lever.
@-mentions in secret notes
Notes can be marked as secret by clicking the lock icon beneath the text field.
When a note is marked as secret, only those with the necessary Sensitive Information Privileges will be able to see it. However, users that are @-mentioned in a note will be able to see that note regardless of if they have the necessary Sensitive Information Privileges. For more information refer to our article on secret notes.
