Recruitment CRM: Manually Create a Bio

Bios are usually put into the system from outside sources. Sometimes, however, you may have a need to enter Bio information about a Prospect right away or a Prospect that has no other source.

This article tells you how to manually create a Bio record, outside of any other data loading streams. Internal business processes may differ on preferences of how and when to manually add information into CRM.

Creating a Bio

If needed navigate to the Prospect Record.

  1. From your homepage, click on Prospects if showing as a default tab or click on the All Tabs button (+) in the menu bar to display All Tabs and click on Prospects in the list.
  2. On the Prospects Home Tab find the Prospect record that needs the Bio added either by clicking on the Prospect Reference from your default view or by searching the appropriate dropdown selection in the View: menu and clicking Go!
