Can I view a report of the sources of my candidates or applicants?

Trakstar Hire has a wide array of reports for your data needs.

What are "candidate sources"?

The candidate sources derive from where the candidate accesses your application form, such as your hosted site, Indeed, etc. You can also add the source to the candidate(s) profile when you add a single candidate or bulk upload, candidates.

Sources also pull automatically when using the Add Any Job Board feature.
