The applications over time report gives your organization the flexibility to track how many new candidates you're receiving for your jobs, departments, and sources. Use this report to track which sources are performing best, which recruiters are handling a large volume of new candidates, or which jobs don't seem as popular as others in the same department.

Complementing the new candidates by source report, which offers a snapshot showing what happened on a single day in the past, the applications over time report shows everyone who applied in a date range.

The applications over time report can be filtered by the following:

  • Job
  • Job status
  • Department
  • Office
  • User
  • Hiring team role
  • Custom job fields configured with Yes/No, Single select, or Multi select field types
  • Date applied

Note: By default, the date applied for the applications over time report is set to the current year and will display the 8 most recent weeks for all jobs included in the report.

You can organize columns on the report by week, month, quarter, or year.

You can organize rows by job, recruiter, source, or department.

Click Apply after applying any filters to your report.

Note: The applications over time report can display a maximum of 12 columns per report, regardless of the date ranges selected. For this reason, it may be necessary to run multiple reports to capture the data you intend.

If there aren't yet 12 weeks in the current year, the report will default to the last 12 weeks of the previous year.

Applications over time visualization

The applications over time report will visualize the total row values as a single line with the number of applications displayed on the y-axis and the periodization (columns) on the x-axis.

Note: The applications over time report doesn't support individual trend lines per row.

You can hover over any data point in the visualization for the exact number of hires made for that period.

Since the visualization displays data from your report, changes made to the report via Filters and more like adjusting the date filters will impact the visualization.
