Collecting references on your applicants, whether as part of your internal process or on behalf of a client, is not only a way to confirm their prior employment history, but can also be used as a business development tool.
itris allows you to create references from the details in the employment tab of the applicant record, where it will pull though the relevant information into the references form, or from the References tab. Even if created from the references tab you can link back to the applicants related employment.
You have the option in the References tab to send an email to the referee, requesting the reference. This is where you may find it useful to set up a global email template for references, see the related article for further information.
When creating and managing references you can set requested, received and reminder dates, you can have multiple reference types (see related list items article), attach a reference document or record a verbal reference.
