Widgets in Zoho Recruit - Overview
There are times when there is a need to use services from some off-the-shelves softwares that differ from a regular ATS. For instance, a dial-pad for calling a candidate. Although it is available as a separate software, it isn't conventionally available in an ATS. But fret not! Widgets are embeddable UI components that you can create on your own, using our Java Script Software Development Kit. These widgets can be used to perform certain functions that utilizes data from third-party applications seamlessly.
Let's say you have certain metrics that you measure using an Analytics software. You need to open a new tab for analytics, and if you use other services, like monitoring your website, data from other services, etc, the things that you have to work with are separated into different parts. Through widgets, you can use data from these services and display and use them to perform actions within Zoho Recruit. For instance, you can have a widget which displays a heatmap of the distribution of talent in a certain region. You can get an idea of the locations where quality candidates are located and where they aren't, and plan accordingly.
