Person Type

Within Big Biller, the People database houses all of your Candidate and Contact records. The Person Type field on all People records helps you to label each one appropriately. When selecting a type, you can choose from the following: Candidate, Prospect, Referral, Contact, Hiring Authority, Recruiter, Other, or Source.

A person can be labeled with one or more type. You’ll want to make sure you always label your people appropriately with this field if you wish to search on the Person Type field in the future.

When parsing a new resume, that person is automatically set to be a Candidate by default.

To change a Person’s type:

  • Navigate to the corresponding Person’s Datasheet
  • Locate the Miscellaneous card
  • Click the pencil icon in the top right corner of the card to inline edit the Type selection(s)

  • Check the corresponding box or boxes that relate to that Person
