Help me track salary $ expectations

I’d love to know who uses LinkedIn Talent Hub?

At SSW we moved over to LinkedIn for our recruitment system (aka ATS being Applicant Tracking System) and it has been a good move, although it is much more $ expensive.

I find it annoying that there is no field to keep track of someone’s salary expectations.  Currently I write it in a note: 

How do you keep track of candidate’s salary expectations? What is the logic of not having this important field?

Figure: Weird – There is no field to track Salary $

Help me do reports from the Tags

What we want to see is the number of phone calls per recruiter – to track activity on candidates. 

We can add tags to candidates within a project, but then we cannot report on it.

Figure: It is easy to add a tag for a candidate on a specific “project” (i.e. position). It should be possible to report on it

But in the custom reports, you can’t do anything with those tags:

Figure: No capabilities around tags except for “Tag Added” which doesn’t help much


What would be awesome is a custom report that shows, for each recruiter:

  • Username
  • InMail Sent
  • Phone Calls done (could be a tag)
  • Moved to xxx stage

Unfortunately no way to do that report  ☹. 

Another approach would be to have a custom stage in the pipeline like “Contacted on the phone” that we could move candidates to. Then report on that pipeline stage.

Unfortunately no way to report on this either (you can only report on the top level stage).
