Before you get started with Kalo, you will need to invite your freelancers to join your Index and get onboard with your company. By navigating to your Index, you can access (3) options to do just that. In the top right hand corner of the Index, you will see a '+' icon.
From here you will be provided with (3) options to invite freelancers by.
1. Directly adding freelancers to your team's Index
As a team user, you can populate all of freelancer information within this tool to create a profile on behalf of your freelancer.
After the form is filled out, you can maintain their profile as unclaimed until you are ready to work with them by selecting 'Add to Index' at the bottom of the form. The freelancer profile will automatically be added to your Index for future use.
While not required, you can select a Template, assign a Category and add relevant Skills for the freelancer. These tools allow you to collect specific information, and organize your freelancer by skill and specific projects/teams.
You will always be able to invite those freelancers to claim their profiles later by clicking 'Invite' in their profiles, which would send an invitation email to them.
2. Invite by Email
Once you select 'Invite', an email notification will be sent to your freelancer to accept your invitation and join the Kalo platform. The freelancer profile will be added to your Index with a note until the invitation is accepted.
Note: If you wish to see who has been invited to your Kalo Index, you can review the 'Invitations' section within the Admin page of your account (permissions pending).
3. Invite Link
Using the 'Invite Link' you can create a custom link to use wherever you would recruit freelancers. This custom link can be shared on your website, Facebook & LinkedIn pages, Twitter or other preferred recruiting channels. This tool is best used if trying to quickly scale your freelancer talent pool.
Once a freelancer selects the link, they will be required to fill out any templates you have requested prior to being added to your Index. It is recommended that you create a specific Category for these campaigns so that you can easily track which freelancers are associated with this link.
