Progress an application
A candidate's application can be progressed to the following stages:

Reject an application
Ensure you're communicating with any unsuccessful candidates when their application is not progressing.
To reject an application, update their status to Move to Rejected through the three dots next to their application.
You'll be prompted to confirm the action via a popup. This action will send an Application Rejected email to the candidate.

Hire & onboard staff
Tanda Hire is designed to seamlessly link to Tanda's onboarding feature. If you do not use Tanda's onboarding feature, you can keep track of hired candidates by updating an application's status.
If you use Tanda onboarding, invite successful applicants straight through to your Tanda account by clicking the Hire & Onboard button.
Enter employee details
To begin the Hire & Onboard process, start by filling in the Employee Details. Some items on this page will update based on the details the candidate has already provided, such as name, email, and date of birth.
If you selected a Position when creating the job ad, any teams, contracts, documents, and qualifications associated to it will also be automatically populated.
If you've selected to attach any contracts when onboarding the candidate, you'll have the opportunity to review them on the Finalise Contracts page. If no contracts are being sent, you'll continue to the final step.
On this page, you can:
Set pay conditions
Set regular hours
If you're onboarding using a Position, some of these fields will be pre-populated. Any fields that aren't pre-populated by a position can be edited on this page.
Some details are used as Dynamic Fields in a contract. Once you've finalised the pay conditions and regular hours, click the corresponding Apply to Contracts button to insert these details into the contract. Once complete continue with the Review button.
Confirm and onboard
Finalise the onboarding process on the Confirm & Onboard tab. Here, you'll be prompted to review details you've entered. Once all details have been confirmed, click the Invite to Onboarding button.
The new employee will receive an invitation to onboard in Tanda. Learn more about this process in the Completing Employee Onboarding guide.
