We want to make it easy for you to focus on what matters -recruiting the best talent without bias- and minimise the frustration that might come from not knowing where to find the information that you need or from over-clicking in order to get what you need.
That's why we've put a huge effort into making your navigation throughout Applied as intuitive as possible.
Here are the three main pages that will become very familiar once you log in to your Applied account:
Create new roles and monitor existing ones
Around 75% of the Dashboard is about creating and viewing existing roles.
The option for creating roles will always be available at the top of the Dashboard.
In terms of role view, you'll be able to customise it according to roles' status. Active roles will be displayed by default, and they include those in draft mode (i.e. not live yet), those open so candidates can apply, or those closed to candidates but ready for the de-biased review of Sift Questions, structured interviews, or to be tagged with hires. You can archive any of these roles if you need to.
Also, the most recently created roles will be at the top of the Dashboard.
|Note: You'll be able to view all or some roles, depending on the type of permissions that you have.|
For each role on the Dashboard, you can quickly skim the following information : A. Job Title; B. Level, grade, specific locale or any internal role categories that you use in your Organisation; C. Internal reference number that you may like to add so it's easy for you to track roles across HR systems; D. When was the role created and by whom was it created; E. Number of applicants; F. Status of the role (draft, open and receiving applications, closed to applicants or archived); G. Expected closing date (in number of months or days). H. Quick actions: click on three dots to view, copy or archive the role.
Check candidates' recent activity
You can check if there are new applications and monitor candidates' most recent ratings and comments about their experience. This information gets to you on a real-time basis and for all roles for which candidates have applied or have been rejected and received a feedback link.
You can go to the each role's reporter if you want more detailed information about candidates experience.
After you type in a candidate's name or email, their information will be displayed on the Dashboard. You can then click on the relevant links that are displayed if you want more detailed information about the candidate.
2. Your Account
You can go to your account once you click on your name -at the top right corner of the Dashboard. Once you're there, you'll be able to update your personal profile or change the organisation settings.
3. Roles and their Build, Manage and Reports tabs
You'll spend most of the time building roles (A), managing applications (B) and monitoring performance and diversity (C). These tasks will be the same across roles, and you'll be able to their corresponding pages depending on the permissions that you've been granted.
Here's where every recruitment process starts.
You start by adding the essentials (e.g. job title, team, package information, job description and skills that you're looking for) and finish by previewing the role and making it live. While building the role, you'll also add the main assessments that will help you to replace the old-fashioned CV screening. You'll also be set up the hiring team.

This will become your main working environment once you start receiving applications.
Here you can reject applications that don't meet basic eligibility criteria, allocate applications to de-biased review, manage interviews, send feedback and tag hired candidates. You can also upload external scores or invite applicants if you need to.
For learning more, you can check out the overview of the Role Manager.
This section gives you more insight into your hiring process. You can check the overall metrics of your recruitment process (e.g. no. of candidates by stage and time to hire), your diversity stats or your candidates' feedback.
