Auto-merging during resume addition aggregates multiple versions of a candidate’s resume into a single resume
Auto-merging of updated resumes based on key candidate criteria ensures your resume database remains up-to-date with zero manual work.
Auto merging of duplicate resumes is done in 2 ways to optimize value:
- Replace Merge – Existing resume is replaced with incoming resume if the new resume reflects major changes by evaluating work experience & other details.
- Insert Merge – If no major change detected in work experience & employment record but incoming version of resume contains additional candidate details then these are inserted into existing resume record.
Duplicate/Merging Status Icons
Talenture RS displays distinct icons next to each newly added resume to indicate whether it is a Fresh, Merged, or Skipped resume. Use the Resume Merge filter to filter your recently added resume view by Fresh, Merged, or Skipped resumes.
Managing Merging Process
Auto-merging may get disabled when you do a lot of manual updation of candidates, for e.g. via the Power View page. In this case you can enable auto-merging from the Talenture RS Manager tool on the Talenture RS serve.
Refer to this help page for viewing the steps for this: Fixing the Merge-Pending Status of Talenture RS Candidate Database.
Talenture RS also allows you to unmerge last merge of a resume in case you want to undo the auto-merging of specific resumes.
You can use the unmerge feature to obtain the original version of merged resumes while Talenture RS also allows you to manually merge two or more resumes. Manual merging can be used to club or aggregate multiple versions of a candidate’s resume into a single resume in Talenture RS.
You can use these options from candidate list views such as: Candidates Added/Refreshed, Candidates List in a Job etc.
