This article describes the functions of the Positions tab, which can be accessed by clicking on Recruiting in the main menu.
This page provides a structured overview of your open positions and application processes.

Job filter (1)
Use the filter buttons at the start of the page to limit the overview displayed to the positions that are relevant to you. Apply the My positions filter to have all of the positions displayed where you are involved in the recruiting process. When you click on the Applications tab, this filter is applied automatically. To have Archived positions displayed, click on the first filter button and select the Archived positions option. You will not lose any data by archiving, and any filled openings can be retrieved again as needed. Click on Show > Archived positions to see an overview of your archived positions.

Overview of open to-dos (2)
The open to-dos displayed at the top of the page provide you with a quick and convenient overview of any important events in candidate profiles that you are responsible for. Click on one of the number indicators to be taken to the respective pre-filtered candidate overview with a list of all applicant profiles that require an action on your part.
The following number indicators are displayed:
- The number of prioritized applications with pending to-dos
- The number of applications that have been in a particular phase for too long.
- The number of candidate messages that have not yet been replied to.
- The number of evaluations you haven't read yet.
- The number of comments on candidates you haven't read yet.
- The number of messages currently in your Unassigned messages.
The numbers displayed take any job filters into account. So, if, for example, you have set the My job positions filter, the open to-dos that relate to the positions that you are responsible for will be shown.
Click on the respective area to be taken directly to the list of candidates, where all applications with an update are marked with a blue dot. After you have replied to the message, or have read the evaluation or comment, the application no longer appears in the overview.
