Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just go to a candidate's or contact's social media profile to learn more about them? We've built a way for you to keep track of their social profiles from Recruit CRM.

How to add social profile links to a specific candidate/contact/company record📱

To add social profile links to a record, you have to go to that specific record and click on the pencil icon to edit. 

A form will open and in that form, if you scroll down, you can see social profile fields where you can paste the link. We offer Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Xing, and GitHub by default.

Paste the links and click on submit to finish adding social profile links!

Where can you find the social profile links/URLs of the records?🔎

Inside of the candidate/contact/company profile:

In the main candidate, contact, or company page, hover your cursor or click over the preview eye button next to the record's name:

How to create custom social profile link fields for candidates records➕

This feature is currently in Beta and will be gradually released to all users in 1-2 months.

Just as we have default fields for entering social profiles or media links for records, you can also create custom social profile icons and link the specific URL of each record to those custom social profile fields you create.

This feature is currently only available for candidates.

To create a custom social profile field, navigate to the candidate's custom fields page and create a new custom field with your desired name for the social profile.
E.g. Instagram, Tumblr, Tik Tok, etc.

When creating social profile fields, select "Social Profile" as the custom field type so the system can categorize it correctly.

You can also upload a logo by clicking the "Upload File" button while creating the field. This logo will appear as the new icon in the candidate's profile.

To get any social media logo, navigate to Brandfetch.

Once you upload the logo, it will serve as the icon button for the new custom social profile field you created.

If you create a custom social profile field, you'll find it under the custom fields section when editing a candidate:

Visibility of social profile links 👀

You can alter the visibility of the social profile links.

For example: If you only want to see the Xing profile and the LinkedIn profile and the rest (Twitter, Facebook, GitHub) are not relevant to your workflow, you can choose not to have them on the edit candidate form.

1. Head to the Admin Settings and under Data Customisation you'll find the Candidate fields.

2. Scroll down to Social Profile Links (or scroll down to Additional Information if you want to change the visibility of a custom social profile field) and turn the toggle off for the fields that you do not wish to see on the Candidate Profile.

Don't forget to save the changes!
