This template is very easy to use. Please follow the steps below.
STEP 1: Enter Job Details
Start by entering the Job Title, Recruiter Name and Job posted date.
STEP 2: Enter the four stages of recruiting
The four stages of hiring are Application, Phone Screen, Interview and Offer. the fifth stage not mentioned in the offer acceptance (hire) stage. You can change the names of these four stages. If you only have three stages, then leave a blank in the fourth stage name.
STEP 3: Enter Applicants’ information
Enter Applicant (Candidate) name and dates when the applicant reached each of the four stages. If the applicant does not reach a stage, leave it blank.
When a decision is made to not proceed with an applicant, enter CLOSED in the STATUS column.
Enter ‘decline reason’ for candidates who were not selected.
Enter Comments if needed.
STAGE is a calculated field that tells which stage an applicant is.
STEP 4: Enter Hired Applicant Name
After a candidate accepts the offer, then enter Hired Applicant and Hired Date information.
As you enter data, the summary section on the top right updates automatically with the key metrics.
When the job is not filled yet, the metrics will display as below.
The status will be displayed on the top left as HIRING.
Number of Applications and Days to Hire (or Days in Hiring) will be displayed at the top.
You can see the active pipeline (applicants or candidates whose application status is not CLOSED). For example, in the image below, there is 1 candidate in APPLICATION stage, 4 in PHONE SCREEN, 1 in INTERVIEW and 1 in OFFER stages.
As you are hiring, the funnel will represent only applicants whose status is CLOSED.
After a candidate has been hired, the Summary Dashboard changes slightly automatically to reflect the recruiting metrics. You can record that hiring is complete by entering the Hired Applicant name and Hired Date information.
The summary will display the status as HIRED and will show the Recruitment metrics – Number of Applications and Days to Hire.

The top 3 decline reasons are shown along with %. This is based on applicants where status is CLOSED.

After publishing the free template, I received many requests for step by step instructions/tutorial on how to build this recruitment tracker template and track recruiting in Excel? I developed a 4-part video series explaining every single step of creating this recruitment template. Please watch the video playlist below.
How do you keep track of an Employee joining a company using Excel?
Recruitment process of an employee doesnt stop at receiving the offer, it can only complete if the employee successfully joins for work in the company.

I am glad to announce that the Manufacturing Inventory and Sales Manager Excel Template has been upgraded from v1 to v2. Customers who have already purchased receive the v2 for free. Please create an account with indzara.com and you can log in to access all your files anytime. If you would like to continue using the v1 file, please do so. This is an optional upgrade if you are interested in receiving the enhancements. The following are the key changes in v2 from v1.
Holding as Finished Goods
v1 of the template allowed only products of one kind, either holding as finished goods or not. The v2 of the template allows mix of products that are manufactured and held as finished goods and products that are assembled on demand (without holding as finished goods). You can indicate this for each product in the PRODUCTS sheet.
Choose Yes if you hold finished goods in inventory. If you choose Yes, then while entering orders, you should enter Purchase, Manufacturing and Sale orders.
Leave it blank if you do not hold finished goods in inventory (i.e., you manufacture on demand and sell immediately), then you can just enter Purchase and Sale orders. Manufacturing orders are not required.
You can create invoices instantly by typing just the order number.
Now you can calculate tax on your orders easily. You will indicate tax rate for each product in the PRODUCTS sheet and the tax calculations will be made automatically. They will also appear on the invoice.
You can enter discounts on orders. In the ORDER DETAILS sheet, while entering order line items, you can enter discount in the UNIT DISCOUNT column. The template will automatically apply discounts to the amount calculations.
Re-Order Point for Raw Materials
Raw Materials can also have re-order points. You will enter them in the RAW_MATERIALS sheet.
Raw Materials report can now be used to identify which raw material should be ordered. Please use the last column TO ORDER to filter on raw materials that need to be ordered.
Store Partner Information
Partner (Suppliers and Customers) information can be stored. This will be used in the invoice. By entering partner information once, you can re-use them automatically in the invoice for all future orders.
This Excel template helps in managing inventory at a manufacturing/assembly business. If you buy raw materials and convert them to products by assembling or manufacturing, then you can use this template to manage inventory of products and raw materials. You can save time by the automatic calculation of current inventory levels of products (finished goods) and also products (in the form of raw materials). All the order details will be managed in one place and you can see purchase and sales trends instantly in this Excel template.

The template can handle two different scenarios.
Scenario 1: Buy raw materials from suppliers, receive customer orders and manufacture products and sell them.
Scenario 2: Buy raw materials from suppliers, manufacture products and hold them, and sell them to customers when you receive orders.
In the first scenario, you are not holding finished goods. In the second one, you are. Before you begin using the template, choose the setting that is appropriate for your business.
Enter products in the PRODUCTS sheet. Each line should be a separate product.

You can see that 1 Banana, 5 Strawberries and 10 Blueberries are needed to make 1 unit of Banana Berry Shake (L). See rows 4 and 5. 2 Apples and 2 Bananas are needed to make Apple Banana Shake (L). The Excel template can now understand how inventory needs to be calculated for raw materials and products.
4. ORDER DETAILS
It’s time to enter the order details. If you hold finished goods inventory, then there are three types of Orders. Purchase, Sale and Mfg.
Purchase Order: When you place an order to acquire raw materials from suppliers.
Sale Order: When your customer places an order to buy products from you.
Mfg Order: When you manufacture goods and store as finished goods, choose Mfg as Order Type. If you don’t hold finished goods inventory, please do not use Mfg order type.
ORDER NUMBER: Order number is not used in the template to calculate anything. This has been provided for you to track your orders easily. You can filter the Orders table by choosing specific order number to see all the items in that order. If your systems generate any order numbers, you can enter them here. If you don’t have any such systems, you can create your own. The only recommendation is that you should have a unique order number for each order.
For Purchase orders, this is the date when the order is placed by you to your supplier.
For Sale orders, this is the date when the order is placed by your customer to you.
For Mfg orders, this is the date when you placed an internal order to manufacture.
For Purchase and Mfg orders, this is the date when the inventory becomes available for you to sell.
For Sale orders, this is the date when the inventory will leave you to the customer.
For Purchase orders, your supplier is the Partner.
For Sale orders your customer is the Partner.
For Mfg orders, you can choose ‘Self’ as the Partner name, since you are manufacturing and holding the finished goods yourself.
For Purchase orders, enter raw material name.
For Sale and Mfg orders enter product name.
QUANTITY: Number of units of products. The unit can be any numeric value. Even if your unit is not whole numbers, you can still use the Quantity field.
In Purchase orders, this is the cost of buying one unit of the product. In Sale orders, this is the revenue from selling one unit of the product. For Mfg orders, it is the cost of manufacturing one unit of product.
AMOUNT (Calculated field): (Unit Price X Quantity) = represents the amount of money. In Purchase orders this would be money leaving you and in Sale orders, this would be money that customers pay you. In Mfg orders, this is the amount it spent to manufacture.
After entering any data in the template, please refresh. You can do so by pressing ‘Refresh All’ from DATA Ribbon.
