Creating a new Talent profile in the system from a LinkedIn or Xing profile, it is pretty easy with Talentry Sourcer:

NOTE: If you are on a profile page where the Talentry Sourcer is working, the logo will no longer appear in light grey (and disabled), but it will appear in dark grey with the typical blue Talentry dot and will become active.


If you can't see the icon, you can find it by clicking on Puzzle Piece (to the right of it) and pin it to always have it visible

  • Talentry Sourcer currently supports the extraction of the following information:

    • Profile picture
    • Email address (when available)
    • Linkedin / Xing URL link
    • Work experience (under the "Experience" section)
    • Education history (under the "Experience" section)
    • Skills (under the "Experience" section) 
    • Languages (under the "Experience" section) 


  • Additionally, the user can also perform some actions on the profile before sending it to the Talentry system:
    • Set Talent Status
    • Choose preferred language
    • Add to one or more Pools
    • Add one or more Notes


  • The user will have to click on the "Send to Talentry" button to confirm the creation of the Talent in the system
  • Right after clicking on "Send to Talentry", the user will have to select an option to request the GDPR consent to the Talent



➡️ Request GDPR consent to the new Talent

Option 🅰️ - Generate Consent Link

This option is available to all users. A link is created and can be sent over to the Talent via private message (LinkedIn or Xing inbox, personal e-mail, SMS, etc.).

When the Talent clicks on the link, a landing page will open with the GDPR consent agreement text and the Talent will be able to grant or refuse the consent for the treatment of their data.

Option 🅱️ - Send consent E-Mail

This option is available to all users, but can only be used if there is an available e-mail address that has been extracted by the Talentry Sourcer.

When the user chooses this option, the Talent will receive an e-mail to request their consent for the treatment of their data.


At this point, the Talent you are creating might not even be aware of the fact you have selected them. Therefore, we recommend to use this option only if you have already got on contact with the person.

Option C - Unlock the Talent manually

This option is only available for users with Admin roles.

It will allow the user to work on this profile and use all the features available, but this feature needs to be used with major attention: processing a Talent profile and data without having their explicit permission, will break the rules of GDPR consent protection law.


If you want to keep your data compliant with the GDPR, we do not recommend this option. Please consult your data protection officer for details. 


Update an existing Talent extracting new information

If the Talent you are extracting already exists in your CRM, you will be informed within the Talentry Sourcer view: You will see a green information banner saying: "This Talent already exists!".


When extracting an already existing Talent, the user will be able to:

  • Open the existing Talent profile in the Talentry CRM
  • See if there are new information available extracted that can be pushed into the profile in the CRM
  • Edit the informations manually from the Talentry Sourcer:
    • Change the Talent Status
    • Change the preferred language
    • Add or remove Pools
    • Add or remove Notes
  •  To save the changes by clicking on the button "Update Talent"
