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

How to add a candidate to the system

Log in to your Martide account and click on Candidates in the header bar at the top of the screen. That will take you to this page. In our example we don’t have any candidates yet:

  • Bulk import candidates via an Excel spreadsheet by clicking the Import Candidates button.
  • Look for candidates in the search bar at the top.
  • Filter your candidates using the options on the left hand side.

If you click Create Candidate you will see this page:
