As a manning agent you are able to add candidates to the platform's database. Here’s how to do that.

Understanding your Candidates page

Log in to your Martide account and click on Candidates in the menu on the left hand side. That will take you to this page. In our example we currently have 2 candidates:

Here you can:

  • Add candidates one at a time by clicking the +Add candidate button.
  • Bulk import candidates via an Excel spreadsheet by clicking the Import Candidates button.
  • View your candidates’ name, rank, availability date, nationality and status.
  • Filter candidates by the preferences in the white boxes at the top, or by the little pyramid’ icon next to Name, Rank, Availability, Nationality and Master Status.
  • View and edit a candidate’s profile by clicking on their entry in the list.

How to add a candidate to the system

Click the +Add candidate button at the top of the page:

Their rank, availability date and nationality will appear on this page when you have added that info to their profile.

How to import candidates to the system

If you already have a spreadsheet of candidates, we’ve made it easy to import and upload their details so you don’t have to enter each one individually.

Click the Import Candidates button at the top of the page:

Here you can:

  • Drag and drop, or upload, a file from your computer by choosing the relevant method. Click Start Import.
  • Download a Sample File by clicking on Download Sample File. This opens an Excel spreadsheet that you can use as a template to make sure you enter your information correctly so the system uploads it without any issues:
