Prospect Review

Note: The Prospect Review feature is only available to customers with CRM 

Prospect Review is a feature included in the CRM add-on for Greenhouse Recruiting. With Prospect Review, users can efficiently review and manage all prospects within a given prospect pool or prospect stage. In this article we will cover where to find the Prospect Review feature and the various actions you can perform to convert, update, or reject prospects.

The Prospect Review feature can be accessed by clicking on CRM from your Dashboard and hovering over a prospect pool or prospect stage that contains at least one prospect.


Prospects that are not currently associated with a prospect pool can be reviewed through No Pool Specified.


Once you have determined which prospect pool or stage you would like to review, click Review Prospects.

From the Prospect Review page, you will be able to view information collected on a given prospect, including touchpoints, notes, prospect stage, source, jobs the prospect is being considered for, etc...


Use the tools from the right-hand panel, to convert the prospect into a candidate, update their information, skip, or reject them.


Convert Prospect to Candidate

When you have finished, click Save and Next to move onto the next prospect.


Update Prospect

To update information on a prospect, click Update Prospect from the right-hand panel. Use the appropriate fields to update the job(s) the prospect is being considered for, departments, office, prospect pool, prospect owner, source, etc...

To no longer consider the prospect, click Stop Considering. From the subsequent dialogue box, select a reason for the rejection and include any notes about the prospect. Optionally, you can also send a rejection email to the prospect.
