Stage transitions and feedback

It's impossible to build a truly candidate-first process without providing candidates with the means to give feedback on their experiences. This week we've launched transitions, which invite candidates to provide feedback on their application thus far they move between stages in your hiring process.

A new candidate stage transition

Transitions appear on candidates' dashboards when they are progressed. Candidates are shown a recap of what's happened thus far alongside content that you can personalise. If you have opted to ask for feedback in job authoring, candidates will also be prompted to rate their experience and add any comments they might have on it.

For stages with multiple steps, such as meetings, candidate responses can be linked to individual parts of the stage. In the coming weeks we'll be extending Prologue's reporting and insights capabilities to surface all this information and help you improve your processes even further. Stay tuned!

Relationship management – reminders

Finding amazing candidates is hard. For one thing, it's not uncommon to find the perfect person for a role, only to find out that it's not the right time to speak. Reminders let you quickly arrange to follow up with candidates, whether they're going on holiday for a few weeks or want to check back in 6 months' time.

If something changes, cancelling is just as easy!

Improvements and fixes

  • When moving combinations of externally sourced and applied candidates, all candidates will now end up in the correct stage (that is, the first non-sourced/non-applied stage you have configured).
