Want to have the system automatically update an existing candidate’s resume when the candidate applies by email to the address that your company has set up to receive resumes? Now you can make that happen by getting in touch with Support to request that this feature be enabled.
With this feature enabled, when candidates who already have records in your database send their new resumes to your Resume Parsing Address, those resumes will now “parse as existing”; meaning, the resume content will automatically update the candidate record’s Resume field (which is also what displays on the candidate list preview slideout). The new resume is also added as an attachment under the candidate record’s Files tab. For more information about automatic resume parsing, view the What is the Automatic Resume Parser? FAQ.
If the feature is not enabled, the new resume will simply be added as a file attachment to the candidate record (which is existing functionality).
