Zoho Recruit | Home Tab Customization

Home Tab Customization

The Home tab in Zoho Recruit is a quick way to check the progress of all your Recruit activities. It contains components from different modules such as Candidates, Clients, and Job Openings. One quick glance at the components of the Home tab will give you an overview of your recruitment activities.

As well as indicating the progress of your recruitment activities, the Home tab also serves as a great place to organize your daily tasks using 2 types of View. 

Classic View

The Classic View includes 3 standard components: Tasks List View, Today's Events and Pipeline by Stage. Having this as the first thing you see when you log in to Zoho Recruit helps you plan your day better. The Classic View is unique to a Recruit user and shows their Tasks, Events, and Pipeline. This view cannot be customized. The Classic View for lists has three main components: Tasks List View, Today's Events, and Pipeline by Stage.
