Talemetry Desktop Tools - Using the Chrome Extension

Using the Chrome Extension


The Talemetry Desktop Tools Chrome Extension helps recruiters and sourcers to quickly get candidates that they find on the internet into Talemetry.  This article explains how to use the Chrome Extension.

Prerequisites:

  • You must be on a Chrome Browser (see this article for full system requirements)
  • You must have installed the Chrome Extension (see this article for information on how to download and install the Chrome Extension)

1.  Adding a Candidate to Talemetry - Quick Save


  • On your Chrome browser, find a candidate profile or resume.  

  • Click on the Add to Talemetry button (Talemetry button located in Chrome toolbar)


  • The Chrome Extension quick review form will come up.  It will show you the First Name, Last Name and email address extracted.  It may also show you a folder where the candidate will go, and/or a job where the candidate may go and/or the source of the candidate (based on what you selected the last time you added a candidate using the Chrome Extension)
  • If this information is wrong, press cancel.  Often if the page has other information on it, you may need to first select text - see Tips and Tricks article
  • If this information is correct you can click on "Quick Save"
  • If this information is partially correct, or is missing at least one of the 3 key fields, or if you want to change the job/folder/source, you can click "Review" - this will allow you to edit all of the candidate information - see section #2 in this article.

  • If you want to choose a different job and/or folder, you must click review.  See section #2.
  • If the basic information is acceptable, click on "Save" and the candidate will be added to Talemetry.  Wait for the confirmation that it was successful.  If there was an error, you may try again or try some other techniques - see section 3 of this article for some suggestions.

2. Adding a Candidate to Talemetry - Review


  • On your Chrome browser, find a candidate profile or resume.  

  • Click on the Add to Talemetry button (Talemetry button located in Chrome toolbar)
  • The Chrome Extension quick review form will come up the same as in Section #1.  If this information is partially correct, or is missing at least one of the 3 key fields, or if you want to change the job/folder/source, click the "Review" button

  • This will launch another browser tab containing the full information that was extracted for the candidate.  
  • See the Talemetry Desktop Tools Review page for the details on how this works
