Private candidate notes allow users to create notes on a candidate profile.
In this article:
Create a private candidate note
To start, click the Private tab on the candidate's profile.
From the Private tab, go to the Private Notes section and click Add Private Note.
Add the details of the private note, then click Save.
The private candidate note is then added to the candidate's profile.
Use @mentions in a private candidate note
You can tag another Greenhouse Recruiting user in a comment by typing the @ sign before the user’s name. This action is often referred to as @mentions (“at-mentions”).
Any user mentioned receives an emailed copy of this note.
Private candidate notes and the Activity Feed
Unlike other types of candidate notes, private candidate notes are hidden from all users on the candidate's Activity Feed. Private candidate notes can be accessed within Greenhouse Recruiting only via the Private tab.
