Candidate tags allow your company to organize and filter candidates by custom identifiers beyond existing fields. In this article, we will cover how to add candidate tags to a single candidate.

From a candidate's profile (All Jobs > Job > Candidates > Candidate Profile) navigate to the Candidate Tags section on the right-hand side and click + Edit.


Use the provided Choose tags field to either select an existing candidate tag from the dropdown menu and/or input a new candidate tag. Candidates can be assigned more than one candidate tag.

Click Save Changes when finished. 


The candidate tag(s) will be added to the candidate's profile.
