Duplicate Check

In case we upload the same Resume multiple times, the system will check for a duplicate profile based on three parameters - Email Address, Mobile Number & LinkedIn URL. 

The system also provides options for actions in case of a duplicate check, which are as below. 

  1. Ignore - The system will ignore the resume which you are about to import as it is already present in the system.

  2. Overwrite - The system will overwrite the missing details in the old resume which are present in the new resume.

  3. Clone - The system will create duplicate copies of Candidates.

You can manage your choice of action under the More Settings button. 



More Settings 

Along with actions for the Duplicate check, users can also perform other Actions under the More Settings option. 

They can choose to assign the candidate to a Job directly and can also add candidates to a Talent Pool.
