After an interaction with a candidate, you may wish to record some observations. Alternatively, you may wish to leave a general note for colleagues to view, or for audit purposes.

First, browse to the navigation on the left-hand side of your screen and select 'Manage Jobs' under the 'Jobs' section.

Click on the job title of the relevant job:

From here you will be shown the 'All Candidates' tab. If you have lot's of candidates then you can select one of the individual stages to locate the candidate.

Click on the candidate's name to open their application. Then, click 'Comments':

From here, you can view all comments that members of the hiring team have made, in chronological order:

To add a new comment, begin to type your comment in the text box provided and once you have finished, click post.

Your comment will appear at the top of the comments history.

You can also '@' other users who have access to this application within your comment who will be notified of the fact that you have mentioned them.

You can also make your comment private so only you and those you mention within your comment can view it.

Use the Private comment toggle to make it a private comment and then click post.

Note: Whilst candidates don't have access to these comments, depending on your jurisdiction they might be able to request a copy of their data which would include any comments.
