The prospect owner feature allows your organization to configure a user in charge of managing the relationship with a specific prospect.
Prospect owner overview
Configured per prospect application (i.e. a prospect with multiple applications can have multiple prospect owners), prospect owners are given access to the specific prospect process for the prospect.
By selecting a specific user for the prospect owner role, your organization can retroactively assess the performance of a sourcer (or a user with a similar task) who was initially responsible for the prospect. Use reports such as the prospect conversion report and prospecting activity report to measure the performance of your sourcing team and answer questions such as how many prospects owned by a specific sourcer were converted to candidates?
Assign prospect owner
To assign a user to the prospect owner role for an individual prospect, navigate to the prospect profile.
On the Jobs tab, click Edit underneath Prospect Owner.
From the subsequent field, search for the name of a Greenhouse Recruiting user and select the user from the dropdown.
Click Save when finished.
The selected user will be configured as the prospect owner and will have access to this individual prospect process.
Assign prospect owner in bulk
A prospect owner can be assigned to multiple prospects using the Greenhouse Recruiting bulk action feature.
Click Candidates from your navigation bar and expand the Application Type filter on the left.
Select Prospects only from the Type dropdown.
Click Bulk Actions at the top-right.
Select the prospects who will have a new prospect owner assigned through the bulk action by clicking the checkbox to the left of their name.
When finished, click Edit Selected.
Click Edit Prospect Owner.
Select a user to be the prospect owner for these prospects and click Save.
