This guide will walk you through the steps to customize your recruit lists to better fit your workflow.

How to Create Custom Fields

The first step is to identify what fields matter to you. What information is important to track about your recruits throughout your recruiting process? See some examples below to use as a starting point, and create fields for anything that is important for your staff to keep track of.

  1. Navigate to the Settings>Manage Fields section of your FastRecruit dashboard
  2. To create a new field, select 'Add Field'. To edit an existing field, select the pencil icon
    1. Fields you might create can include: Commitment Status, Evaluation Grade, Text-Update, Graduation Date, Position, Assigned Recruiter
  3. When creating a new field, you can choose between different types including Date, Text, Number, Single-Select & Multi-Select
  4. For Single and Multi-Select fields, add the available value-options to choose from. 
    1. For example, the "Commitment Status" field might add relevant options like "Offered", "Committed", or "Signed"

With these custom fields, you can capture essential information like commitment status, text updates, graduation dates, and more, tailored to your specific staff and workflows.

How to Organize your List Views

The next step is to customize your list views. Choose which fields display for each list-view, and put them in the order that matters to you. This makes tracking your recruits throughout the season as simple as clear as possible.

  1. Select the Recruit List you want to customize. This could be your 2025 Recruits, potential transfers, or any combination of recruits that is important for you to track. Click the gear icon to customize the list-view
  2. Choose which columns to display in the list-view and arrange them in the order you want and click SAVE COLUMNS to finish setting up your list view


Update Recruits from your List Views

Finally, you can update key information about your recruits from the list view
