IdealTraits equips its users with all the tools necessary to hire great talent. One of those tools being the Comments & Activity tab. The Comments & Activity tab is great for several reasons; it logs all the emails sent to a candidate, when they completed the assessment, what time you scheduled that video interview for, and more. This article discusses where to find Comments & Activity, what system messages are logged there, & how to leave notes that you can refer back to later on.

Where is Comments & Activity?

Comments & Activity is located in a candidate's profile. You can get there by simply clicking on a candidate's name, then clicking on the Comments & Activity tab.

What System Messages are Shown in Comments & Activity?

The system leaves messages in Comments & Activity so you can reference back and see any emails this candidate has received, or any activity that prompted a system message. Here are a few examples you might come across:

  1. "Assessment Sent" - when the assessment link was sent to the candidate.

  2. "Completed Assessment" - when the candidate completed the assessment.

  3. "Emailed Candidate {Template Name}" - when you send an email through your IdealTraits account, the system keeps track of what email was sent as well as the time it was sent.

  4. "Emailed Candidate {Template Name} (Sent with delay 1 Day)" - When you send an email through your IdealTraits account with any kind of delay, the system will make a record of the email sent and the length of time delay.

  5. "Moved Candidate to {Stage}" - This will show when you move a candidate from one stage to another.

  6. "Moved Candidate to Archive Stage TAG: {Tag}" - This comment will show when you've archived the candidate, as well as included a tag on their profile when you sent them to the archive.

  7. "Sent candidate Instant Video Request" - when you requested an instant meeting with the Zoom integration.

  8. "Sent candidate a Video meeting request for date @ time" - when you've sent the candidate a scheduled video meeting request with the Zoom integration.
