Applicants May Enter a Referrer Upon Applying
When an Applicant applies they have the ability to enter a referrer (which will appear in green within the talent screen). A referral that was entered upon applying can be found in three separate locations within Avionté: the web applicants portion of the talent screen, the referral box within the Candidates profile, and the web applicant activity within the Candidates profile. The referral follows the candidate through the interview process so that users can associate specific referrals per job.
Additionally, each job a Candidate is associated with can have a different referral listed. Users can still enter a referral within the Applicants profile, however please note, this referral will not be associated with a job. Only referrals that are updated within the talent screen are associated with jobs.
Updating and/or Correcting the Referrer
If the incorrect referral is entered during web apply – or needs to be updated – users can make adjustments by clicking on the referral button from within the web apply, pipeline, or nomination buckets of the talent screen. Once the referral button is clicked, a drop-down list of contacts will appear for you to select the new referral.
Please Note: You must turn on the referral column under the display column options in order to view/update this information:
Once a contact is selected from the drop-down, you will notice an arrow to the right of the referral token will appear. This arrow will take you do the corresponding contacts profile:
If Avionté is Unable to Find the Referrer
If there is a referral entered but there is no arrow by the referrers name, this means that the system could not find a matching referrer in the system. To match the referrer to a contact profile in the system, simply click to update the referral token. If a contact does not already exist in Avionté, a new contact profile will need to be created in order to provide credit for the referral.
Please Note: Web apply referrals will not automatically be matched to corresponding contact profiles in the system. This does not mean that a contact profile does not already exist. Users will need to update the referral token to the matching contact profile in the system.
How to View All Jobs a Referrer is Associated with
If a Candidate applies to multiple jobs and enters the same referrer each time, the referrers name will only show in the Applicants profile once. To view all of the jobs a referral was listed on, go to referral box within the Applicants profile and hover over the name of the referral.
