When you are using Underdog.io to source candidates for a particular role, it’s likely you’ll be employing the same search terms and filters from week to week. To make this process easier, Underdog.io now supports Saved Search.
Saved Search allows you to quickly load a previously created search within the Underdog.io Dashboard, and gives you the option to subscribe to email updates when new candidates who match your search terms are shared in a batch.
To create a Saved Search, start by applying the filters you’d like to use. When building a Saved Search, you are welcome to apply filters from within the left-hand panel, as well as to include Keywords and/or Boolean Queries. In this case, we’ve used both, adding a boolean query within the ‘Keyword Search’ bar, and selecting options from both the ‘Location’ and ‘Role’ filters:
Once you feel comfortable with the search you’ve built, select ‘Save Search’. This will open a new dialogue box. You’ll then be prompted to name your Search, and will be given the option to include a description, if you’d like. You are also welcome to decide whether to subscribe to email updates when new candidates who match your search terms are added to our platform by checking or un-checking the box beside ‘Receive email alerts’. To finalize your selections, simply press ‘Saved Search’.
Now that you’ve saved your search, you can load this search within the Dashboard at any time. To do so, choose the arrow icon beside ‘Saved Search’, and then select the relevant search by name from the drop-down.
If you’ve elected to subscribe to email updates, when new candidates who match your search terms are added to the platform, you’ll receive an email notification including links to the relevant Candidate Profiles.
If you’d like to remove, re-name, or adjust the email settings for a particular search, you can do so by selecting the arrow beside ‘Saved Searches’ and then choosing ‘Manage saved searches’. From here, select ‘Edit’ beside the search in question in order to make adjustments:
