Step 2 In each of these email accounts, setup email forwarding for all job related emails to "Your HireMantra Super Collector Email Account".

Every job is assigned a unique job id that you can use to automatically integrate applications from all sources. (see below)
Step 4: Direct All Resumes / Applications from all sources to your Account
Every job that you post on HireMantra platform is assigned a unique job id that you can use to automatically integrate applications from all sources.
Most of the job portals provide a field for job reference id in the posting form.
When you post a job of such portals please use the unique id generated by hiremantra platform for such portals. For other portals who do not have reference id facility, simple mention this unique job id somewhere in the job title.
The trick is that if the subject line of application email that you receive from any channel contains unique job id generated by hiremantra platform.
If HireMantra finds the job id anywhere in the email subject, the resume and application is automatically tagged to that job.
If the resume email does not contain job Id in subject line, there is nothing to worry. This resume becomes part of resume database and gets indexed any way and is available for your search instantly.
You can open up referrals for the jobs by simply instructing your employees and associates to mention unique job id (see above) in the subject and mention “Referral” keyword somewhere in the the subject line.
The hiremantra platform will automatically tag the application / profile against the person who referred this resume.
Referral reports can be used for incentive calculations and tracking
Simply set up email forward to your hiremantra platform email account (usually email@example.com)
All resumes forwarded to this email would automatically become part of your hiremantra resume and application database DOC/PDF/ DocX / RFT / Text

Step 6: Use Super Search Option to Search Faster
HireMantra search uses Artificial Intelligence to give you better results then any other resume search out there.
For example, if you search for "Java" a resume of applicant that has worked in Java would appear before a candidate you have merely mentioned Java as part of his/her skills section of the resume.
Use can use following advanced options to add more power to your search and reach to right resumes really fast
1. Search for any of the keywords that you type in search box
This option would search all resumes that have one or more the key words that you type
2. Search for all of the keywords that you type in search box
This search would return resumes that contain all the key words that you type. To enable this option, simply choose "all words" from radio button below search box or simply place a + sign before the keywords that are a must in search results. For example, if you type, java + j2me as search strings it will show all the records for java where j2me must appear somewhere in resume.
3. Exact Keyphrase -
This option would search all resumes that have all the keywords that you type in exact same sequence. To enable this option, simply choose "exact phrase" from radio button below search box. To enable this option, simply choose "all words" from radio button below search box or simply enclose the search string in double quotes. For example, "java developer"
4. Eliminate results that contain a particular key word or phrase -
You can use this option to eliminate resumes from search that contain specific keyword or key phrase. To use this option simply add minus sign "-" in front of the keyword that you want to avoid. For example, if you type java -microsoft in search box, the results would show most relevant resumes for Java keyword where microsoft does not appear any where in resumes.
5. Advanced Combination Search -
You can use all the above four options combined to add super power to your search
For example if you can advanced query such as .Net +mobile -cell +"super expert" in search box, it would return all the records that must have must have "mobile" keyword, must not have "cell" keyword and must have exact keyphrase "super expert" in it.
