How can I import candidate details from documents? 

Zoho Recruit's integration with Daxtra (resume parsing software provider), helps automatically parse candidate details from documents and add them to your candidate database, along with the attached resume. The records are easy to search and you can import the documents individually or in bulk.

Note: This feature is available only in Standard Edition. Learn more 

You can map the fields on your own before parsing the resume using the Resume Parser Mapping feature in Zoho Recruit. You can also access the feature using the Customize Field Mapping link in the Import from Document page.
