Tags let you group candidate's together. They're great for highlighting specific skills or information and helping you drill down much faster when you're searching for specific candidates.
Tags are allocated to teams. Any tag you add within a team will become a common tag within that team which you can reuse for any candidate.
How to tag candidates
To tag a candidate click 'Add Tag' button on the specific candidate within the candidate list or you can add a tag from the more menu to the right of the candidate.
You can then either add a new tag or choose a common tag from your previously created tag list.
You can also manage a candidates tag in their profile. Click on the candidate you want. Navigate to the 'Tags' section of their profile.
Here, you can add a new tag or choose from a common tag.

Some useful examples include:
Skill - you might want to quickly identify the skill a candidate holds.
Contract type - you might want to tag candidates with the contract type they are interested in accepting.

Whatever type of tag you find useful for your hiring campaign just add them. It creates a much easier way for you to manage and organise candidates.
