Keep your candidate database in check by organizing and keeping only relevant candidates and ensure that the personal data you store is relevant. So, let's see how you can use Teamtailor filters to make this easy peasy!

In your talent pool, you will be able to use filters to quickly find specific segments of candidates by using the candidate filters.

Filter on application status

When viewing the filters, you'll see Application stage, which means you can filter on the status of the candidate's submitted application. Here, it might be interesting to see the candidates that were rejected in the past and determine if these would be relevant to keep storing for future recruitment. Under Application stages, set Rejected: Yes, and just like that you'll find all candidates that have been rejected.  

Sort on dates for creation and latest activity

Under the Filter section of the candidate bank, you're also able to find candidates that were created before or haven't had an activity recorded after a specific date. Use this filter to see if you have any old and inactivate candidates that you might no longer need to keep. 

Sort by ratings

Use the Ratings filter to find the candidates with lower ratings, as you've deemed them as less-than-ideal matches for your company. 

Delete several candidates at once

Once you've identified the candidates you no longer need to keep in your candidate bank, it's time to delete them. This is done super efficiently with the bulk feature.

To do so, access the Bulk selector (1) and mark the candidates you wish to delete (2). In the menu that appears, click ... (3) and then Delete.

As a security precaution, you’ll be asked to confirm the number of candidates you’re deleting, when you delete bulk candidates. State how many candidates you want to delete (1) and confirm by clicking delete candidates (2).

Note! Once you delete a candidate, the profile is immediately deleted from your company account and cannot be restored.
