  • Recruiter rights to use the process steps in the dossier (authorization to work in the process / dossiers)

  • Admin rights to edit the process steps in the settings of the application process.

General information on process steps and step types

In the 'Settings' you can define which 'steps' your recruiting process should contain. Dualoo has a total of nine possible process steps, two of which (acception and rejection) are mandatory in each process.

The step types can be added to the application process several times. Make sure to rename the name clearly.

Example Step Type: Interview once with the name "Interview No. 1" and then a second time with the name "Interview No. 2".

The order of the steps can be made individually per candidate in the operational process by the 'recruiter'. This means that the 'Recruiter' can also jump directly to the 'Rejection' and skip the 'Interview' for example. When adding the next process step, a 'responsible person' must also always be included. This person receives an e-mail as soon as he or she is responsible for a step. This ensures that the process never stops.

Process step settings:

There are two settings that can be defined in each process step. What it means to enable an online tender or to enable the process interruption can be seen here.
