How to Customize Pipeline Stages

We understand that everyone’s hiring process is different, so we’ve designed a tool in our hiring software that can be easily customized to match your needs. Eddy makes it easy to add a new job stage, change the order of job stages, edit a stage name, or even delete a stage.

Custom Job Pipeline Stages Overview

Every Job is Assigned Six Default Stages

When publish a job in Eddy, the hiring stages will be set by default. The six default hiring stages are as follows:

  1. Application
  2. Phone Screen
  3. Interview
  4. Offer
  5. Hired
  6. Rejected

While these six are set by default, you are able to add, edit and customize the hiring stages to fit your company's specific needs.

How to Add a Custom Stage

How to Edit a Stage

Click the stage name or click the edit icon on the right of the stage name.

From here, enter the edited name on the stage. Hit enter on your keyboard or click anywhere on the page to save your changes.

How to Delete a Stage

On the “Stages” page, click the trash can icon.

Once clicked, you’ll see a quick question to make sure you want to delete the stage. If you are sure you would like to proceed, click the “Yes, delete it” button.

Note: A stage can’t be deleted if there are candidates currently in that stage. If a stage can’t be deleted, you’ll see a trash can with a line struck through it to show that the stage can’t be deleted. Once you remove all candidates from the stage, you’ll be able to delete it.

Some Stages Cannot Be Edited, Deleted, or Moved

The following stages cannot be edited, deleted or moved:

- Application

- Offer

- Hired

- Rejected

Every hiring pipeline must contain these stages and they must be ordered in this particular way.
