Create and use Templates for Faster Role Creation

Templates and share company lists.

March Product Updates

At Censia, we’re starting 2022 with a release to help users save more time and have an even bigger impact on recruiting ROI. We’re excited to be launching Templates, which will allow a user to save inputs, allowing them to cut downtime on starting a search; and leveling up our new Company Search/List module with sharing & collaboration functionalities. 


Censia TI users will now be able to save their search inputs as ‘Templates’. We’re giving our users the ability to save and start searches from previous templates. This means that recruiting teams will not have to start a search query from zero for every new role, instead, they can save their preferred search inputs as a Template for any role and generate new slates/pools as needed.

Users will be able to save templates separately in folders or nest them under categories. This will allow recruiting teams to work more efficiently since they’ll be able to, for example, save search inputs for a Senior Data Scientist in New York, under the Technology/Data Science Template category, and save different search inputs for a Product Manager in New York* under the Technology/Product category. 

[*Templates can be saved with or without a specific Location]

This is an especially significant ROI time-savings resource for teams that have to do dozens of searches for the same role in maybe slightly different locations, by being able to use the same template and just alter the location and get a ranked list of qualified candidates (for each role) in seconds.

Templates will also be useful for recruiting teams who want to save every instance or version of a pool with the specific search inputs. I.e. an executive recruiting firm that shares several pools with a client, and a client prefers the results from Pool #2; this saved template will allow the user (recruiting manager) to quickly go back to a pool generated by those inputs by clicking on that saved template.

In this same vein of historical context, templates will be useful to save every instance/version of search inputs for reviewing purposes between a Sr.Recruiter and a Junior Recruiter, in terms of training and development; for Sr.recruiters to be able to quickly give feedback on the sourcing inputs the junior recruiter has been using. 

Furthermore, Templates might be useful almost as a way of auto-generating slates. A Censia TAI user could run the same template every day and get the latest info/new slates and upload them into a CSV, always refreshing the qualified candidates they can be reaching out for a specific job req. Further reducing time spent on sourcing #TimeSavings. 

Sharing Company Lists

In late 2021, we released the Company Search & Lists module in our Talent Intelligence platform. Aimed at improving collaboration and sharing, Company Lists are no longer unique to a user and are now available for all users within an entity to see and use. This shift also allows companies to build and own their Intellectual Property.

We have identified that users who adopt a “company first” approach (i.e. starting by curating a list of companies who are likely to have the talent they need) have higher satisfaction with their search results, require fewer changes to their model and ultimately make them more efficient.

For increased transparency and alignment of recruitment efforts, there will be no concept of ownership of a (company) list, since it will belong to the organization as a whole. Thus, any user will be able to add, remove, and move companies from list to list. Now, there is no limit to how many lists can be created by a user or by an entity. From now on, all users from an organization will be able to create lists, move them (nest them under categories), clone, and archive them.

All teammates from the same organization will be able to create list categories, edit them, and archive them. Users can use ‘categories’ as a classification and organization system for their company lists. HR teams can increase alignment in recruitment efforts by having a team-wide list and list categorization strategies.

All users will see a count of how many roles (candidate searches) a specific company list has been used in. 

Censia’s new List Sharing function increases your recruiting team’s productivity and teamwork, by being able to not only work from the same lists for different roles but make them part of your Talent Acquisition team’s Intellectual Property; adding value to the HR department’s intel for the whole company. 

Censia Talent Intelligence is a comprehensive data platform that enables enterprises to find, develop and retain the best talent in the world by allowing data-driven talent decisions. We hope these updates will help make your team’s recruitment work faster and more efficiently and that it will free the time to do what they do best: making meaningful connections with the right people.
