As you are going through your system, you start to notice that some of these candidates seem awfully familiar. Brightmove's default criteria to define a Candidate as a duplicate are First Name, Last Name and Email address matching. This means you may get a Sam and a Samuel who are actually the same person. Have no fear, you can merge the two candidate profiles together.
To get to the duplicate candidate management section:
- Click your picture.
- Click Settings.
- Click Duplicate Candidates.
Once you open the Duplicate Candidates you will see the duplicate profiles displayed. The Count lets you know how many people match the criteria you selected. You can toggle the various aspects of the candidate's profile that you would like to search by. Simple click them on or off to see the results change. The columns will update based on the criteria you selected.
To merge two or more candidates:
- Click Manage
- Choose the profile you wish to remain the primary profile
- Click Save.
Please note, when merging profiles, only certain fields will merge, the rest will be taken from the primary candidate profile. The fields that merge are candidate notes, candidate resumes, education, candidate references, submittals, candidate attachments, timecards, and submittal activities.
