User acquisition through Centercode's Recruiting

Our goal with the Recruiting tool is to make the process of user acquisition feature-rich and flexible while still maintaining the reliability and consistency. With Centercode's Recruiting, you’ll create Recruitments to join your projects that utilize various Inivitation Types for bringing in your users. To keep track of users you’ve invited, Recruitments leverage Candidate Pools - a compiled list of all individuals and unique access Keys associated with an Opportunity.

Getting a feel for the Recruiting Management UI

The interface for Recruiting Management is designed to give you a quick, high-level overview of how your Community or Project Recruiting efforts are performing, as well as provide easy access to administering your Recruitments and Inivitation Types. 


Recruiting Management displays a dashboard with five statuses:

  • Total - all Users and Keys that have been held within any Recruitments.
  • Remaining - any users or Keys still waiting in any Pools.
  • Not Interested - all candidates who clicked the “Not Interested?” link in the footer of a Recruiting email they’ve received.
  • Blocklisted - candidates who have attempted to convert to full users, but were blocked by your Recruitment Limiting Filter.
  • Converted - users who successfully joined through any Opportunity.


Recruitments act as the gateways through which your users join your Community or Project. They control the landing page and which Destination Team(s) users are assigned to once they join. 

Within the UI, Recruitments are listed as clickable headers with hover-over actions for moderating Keys and Candidates, creating new Inivitation Types within that Opportunity, activating/deactivating the Opportunity, or removing it entirely. Opportunity rows also include an indicator of which Team(s) the recruited candidates will be assigned to (with hover-over help text), and a breakdown of Total, Remaining, and Converted candidates or Keys within the context of that Opportunity.

Inivitation Types

Inivitation Types are the different pathways your users will take to convert through your Opportunities. These Inivitation Types track and determine how your testers are brought into your portal. You can have as many Inivitation Types as makes sense for your Opportunities and Recruiting offers many types of Inivitation Types to fulfill many specific and general use cases.
