The Trakstar Hire Dashboard is your one-stop-shop to everything you need to do next in your hiring. Get a quick "pulse check" on how your hiring is doing at this very moment including pending tasks to help you keep you organized and focused.
The dashboard displays tasks for candidates who are actively in the hiring process and/or assigned to openings in an active status (Published, Used Internally, Not accepting candidates).
Candidates who have been "decisioned" (rejected, withdrawn, etc), or candidates who are assigned to closed (archived) openings do not display in your dashboard, as these statuses indicate being done with hiring tasks for these candidates.
If you have any Interviews scheduled for today, we will note that at the very top, along with a link to you calendar to view details:
At A Glance and Reports
Below today's agenda are boxes that highlight updates and important tasks:
NEW CANDIDATES ADDED: This is the number of candidates that have been assigned to you within the last 7 days who are in the first stage of an opening. Be sure to screen candidates as early as possible after they've applied to kickstart their hiring journey!
CANDIDATES TO VIEW: This is the number of candidates that are assigned to you, regardless of their stage and opening. Be sure to work on candidates once they become your responsibility to keep the hiring process moving along!
INTERVIEWS TO SCHEDULE: This is the number of candidates assigned to you who are in Interview Stages but have yet to have an interviewed scheduled. Be sure to schedule interviews with candidates to keep them involved and engaged with your team!
EVALUATIONS TO SUBMIT: This is the number of candidates you have already interviewed that you need to submit a post-interview evaluation for. Be sure to fill out evaluations soon after an interview in order to capture your immediate reaction and let your team know whether or not a candidate should move to the next stage!
Each highlight box has a link to a specific report to help you dive deeper into those items we believe are important to understanding and improving your hiring processes. Click through to via your custom report:
You can also click on any of the numbers or titles of these boxes to view a list of the candidates within that category:
