Hiring team members with full access to a job, such as a Hiring Manager or Recruiter on the job's hiring team, can change the source of a candidate's application to properly attribute a referral to a specific user in SmartRecruiters.

To attribute a referrral manually:

  1. Find the candidate's application to the job and look under the name of the job:This is the source that SmartRecruiters assigned to their application.
  2. Click it to edit and choose a referrer.
  3. Select a Referrals source type, and then choose Employee or Manager Referrals.  They're kept separate to help you correctly track employee referrals that are eligible for referral bonuses.
  4. Scroll through the list of active users in your SmartRecruiters account or start typing to find the referrer. Referrers must be users in your account.
  5. Select the referrer from the list.
  6. Click Save. SmartRecruiters will update the application's source, and propagate this change to the Job's profile and Sourcing Analytics.
