How to convert a Contact to a Guest

Guests are similar to Contacts apart from the fact that they have been invited to track the candidate recruitment progress in Manatal within a given Organization (Client/Department). These guests will only receive basic notifications and view publicly shared candidate notes and attachments in Manatal.

Converting contacts to guests grants them access to certain collaboration functions, basic notifications, and candidate notes.

  1. From the Contact overview page, click on the 3-dots next to the contact you wish to convert to a Guest.

  2. From the dropdown menu click on "Convert to Guest". The contact will disappear from the contact overview page and appear on the guest overview page of the same Organization (Client/Department). An email will be automatically sent to that guest for account setup.
