Q: In Teamable, when I click on a job from the Recruiter view, I see an Intro button and a Source button next to each candidate profile. What is the difference between the two?

Figure One: Example of a candidate profile and the 'Intro' and 'Source' buttons.

A: When you click on '**Intro**' you're able to request an introduction to an employee who is a first degree connection right away (by default everyone who knows the prospect will be selected). When you click on '**Source**' the prospect is added to the '**Sourced**' stage from the Tracking tab for that job. From here, you can vet the prospects further and send requests for warm intros via the '**Send Request**' button.

Figure Two: Example of a candidate profile that has been added to the Sourced stage.

So why two approaches? Simple. It allows for greater flexibility for recruiting teams. If you're a sourcer and your job is to quickly identify any viable prospects and add them to a job list, click on the '**Source**' button for each prospect that appears to meet your criteria. If you're a recruiter or hiring manager working with a sourcer, you can review sourced candidates from the Tracking>Sourced stage, see additional information by clicking on Info before sending requests for warm intro to one or more connected employees via the '**Send Request**' button.
