Altamira Recruiting manages duplicate CVs so avoiding multiple entries for the same candidate in the database that leadto errors and confusion.
When candidates apply for a vacancy, they can register with the Career Centre site. If they register and use that on subsequent visits to the site then no duplicate management is necessary. The candidate updates their CVfrom the Career Centre and this update is reflected in the CV database.
However candidates do not always register with the site and those that do are sometimes unable to access their originalCV. This can be due to them forgetting their credentials or because they no longer have access to their original emailaddress. In these cases the candidate will submit a new application inserting a new CV that is posted to the back office. The duplicate management feature recognizes that this CV is a duplicate of an already existing CV and collapses theCVs together. The duplicate feature:
- Marks the original CV as a previous version
- Copies all the activities, projects, vacancies, email etc., from the original CV to the new CV
- Marks the new CV as the latest CV
The platform only displays the latest version of the CV. Recruiters can access the previous versions of the CV directlyfrom the user interface of the platform. To view a previous version of a CV:
- Click on the iconin the CV list
- Click on version of the CV you wish to view
You can select one of the CVs and click on Use this CV as the main CV to set it as the main one.
