The Dropzone is a small boxed area that you can add to any page of your website, such as a job offer or a blog post, in order to allow applicants to directly drop their resumes.

This source dramatically simplifies the application process for candidates who can apply instantly without any effort.

It takes only a few minutes to set up the Dropzone source. To do so, please follow the next steps:

Step 1:

Go to the Sources section and click on Create Source.

Step 2:

Select the Website source category and the Dropzone source type, then click on Create source.

Step 3:

Chose a recognizable source name that you can easily remember and other users can easily recognize.

If you want to hide this source from other users, you can make the source private.

In the Source Managers field, you can choose other team members to manage the source with you. They will automatically follow the source as soon as it's created.

Finally, click on Create Source at the bottom left.

Step 4:

When you create a new Dropzone source, a JavaScript snippet along with a Dropzone wrapper are generated for your source. You can easily implement the Dropzone by copying these code snippets to any page of your website.

You can also get the code snippets specific for local tests as well as send the Dropzone code to your development team.

Finally, you can customize tags, metadata, and labels that will be attached to your candidate's profile.

Below is an example of a custom tracking data script:

<script type="text/javascript"> 
window.dropzone.profile_tags = [{ name: 'Tag name', value: 'Tag
value' }, ...]
window.dropzone.profile_metadatas = [{ name: 'metadata name',
value: 'metadata value' }, ...]
window.dropzone.profile_labels = ["label1", "label2",...]

Step 5:

To customize the messaging and display of your Dropzone, click on the Settings tab.

Type also a Success Title and Success Message confirming that the application has been received.

You can also change the Widget Color to fit your graphical identity and specify the Height and Width of your Dropzone.

Finally, you can activate the Explicit Consent that requests consent from candidates before applying, ensuring full GDPR compliance.
