Plus an explanation how the Search works when looking for Candidates from a certain Job via the button 'Connexys Candidate Search'.

Available types of searches

Available types of searches

In the Connexys Candidates Search you can filer your search criteria on various types. By default, it search for all text fields on the Candidate object. As you can see  in the image, on the right side, you can also show your favorites and change the columns of the found Candidates.

 Type of search Functionality
 Free text search The top field is meant to search in all candidate fields. All fields of type "text", "text area", "email", "phone", "rich text area" are searched. Also all words of the candidate's CV are searched. 

 Location search

Search for candidates within a certain radius of a specific location. 
 Work experience

This allows you to search for candidates with certain work experience. 

- Last job title --> All candidates that have certain words in their last job title
- All job title --> All candidates that have certain words in their job titles
- Last employer name --> All candidates that have certain words in their last employer name
- All employer names --> All candidates that have certain words in their employer names

If you have paid for Textkernel CV parsing, the job titles and employer names are automatically derived from the candidate's CV. 
If you haven't paid for Textkernel CV parsing, you need to manually fill the relevant fields.
