Automation increases the speed of your recruiting by automatically assigning steps to the appropriate hiring team member, so hiring process steps can be completed as soon as possible. You can configure three different Automation steps: Duplicate check, Send notification, and Proceed with candidate.

Configuring Automation

Automation steps are assigned to the recommended roles by default. Any step can be reassigned to a different role by navigating to the Automation page and selecting a new assignee.

To configure them, click on your company name in the top right corner –> Settings –> Automation.

Duplicate check

When Comeet suspects that a duplicate candidate has been added, a Duplicate check step is automatically created and a teammate assigned to confirm/resolve the duplication. This step is assigned to the All position recruiters by default. To learn more about the Duplicate check step, click here.

Automatically handle consecutive duplicate applications

Automation lets you decide if you want Comeet to automatically handle duplicate applications. In the case that an identical application is sent in, Comeet will automatically merge the candidate profile into one and it is noted under the candidate’s activity log.  You may configure one of three settings: When submitted within 30 days for the same position, when submitted within 30 days for any position, or Disable automatic handling of duplicates.

Send notification

A Send notification step is created based on the configuration of your email templates. By default, certain email templates like Rejection after a phone interview or Candidate is hired are configured to create a Send notification step. You can modify them by company using the Email Templates settings. This step is assigned to the All position recruiters by default.

Proceed with candidate

Whenever a candidate receives a Not sure or No hire recommendation after an interview, a new Go / No-go workflow step is created and assigned by default to All position recruiters. This allows the recruiters to choose whether the candidate should proceed or be rejected.

When a candidate receives a low recommendation

Automation lets you decide if you want Comeet to automatically create a Proceed with candidate step, depending on who is submitting the evaluation for the candidate. If an interviewer has permission to reject a candidate, you may prevent Comeet from creating a Proceed with candidate step by enabling this setting. You may configure one of two settings: Create “Proceed with candidate?” step if the interviewer doesn’t have permission to reject the candidate, or Always create a “Proceed with candidate?” step.
