Take a look behind the scenes and see what community ideas and other improvements we are working on, as they are being developed.
Based on an idea of @chusersg a new option is introduced to limit the file size of attachments when applying.
This could be helpfull if you have recruiters working with slow connections and to make their life easier you could limit the file size of CVs that candidates can attach to their applications.
You will see a new option when you add a file field (like a CV) to the application form where you can enter a limit for the file size in MB's:
Leaving it empty will mean the overall limit of 20Mb will apply.
Next, you want to decide on an error message you want to present the applicant when he/she would attach a file that is larger then the limit. You can edit this message in the setup of the form:
That's all, would the candidate apply with a too large file, he/she will receive the error message and an additional "back" option, guiding the candidate back to the original form as he/she left it with all data intact.
Note there are some usability issues with this change. The file-size is first know when the file has been completely uploaded to the server. So if a candidate has a large CV and maybe has to wait a while for his file to upload, he will then get the error message that his file is too large. That will give also give some frustration, so the frustration is not gone but we have moved it from the recruiter to the applicant. If you would decide to use this limitation there should be a least a clear message on the application form about the size limit and that the application will be refused if the file is too large.
This change is only in effect when you would use it in setup, your current application forms are not affected by this change.
When your organisation is using committees to approve and rate applicants, the following improvement can be something for you.
Until now the available approval rating was a fixed value: high, middle or low. The approval rating was entered by a committee member:
You can now define your own rating system. Rename and translate the current values, and add/delete new values. The rating values are stored in a picklist which you can change in the setup, go to "setup - customise - applications - picklists":
The new rating values can be used by the committee members. In the next example I have changed it into a very common rating system of A, B, C and D:
If you are happy with your current rating system you do not have to do anything. The standard will remain high, middle and low.
Additionally, we have made the final rating which is usually made by the chairman of the committee (depending on your setup) available in custom reports, filters and forms. Making the committee result more transparant through the whole system. These final ratings are available for all ratings that are entered in the system after this change has go into effect.
Based on an idea of @chusersg, we made it easier to distinguish between tasks and notifications for a manager's own department and his/her subsidiary departments.
The task list now only shows the tasks related to applications in the manager's own department:
By clicking the "all tasks" option, also tasks related to subsidiary departments are shown:
It is also made possible to control the reception of notification mails. The manager can in setup indicate if he/she wants to receive notification mails for his own department or also for his/her subsidiary departments:
Together, these new options will make it easier for the manager to distinguish between his/her own and subsidiary departments.
Based on an idea from @MarjolieinLim on the Dutch community we introduced a combined overview for a candidate on the managersportal.
There were seperate links to the information candidate info, status (history) and documents. Now this is all combined in one overview which you see when you open a candidate and then scroll down. Below the general candidate info you will see the additional status and correspondance information:
From the overview you can continue directly with a status update or with a new mail, without having to return to the previous candidate list and choose the option from there.
Based on the idea from @visentin, to make it a little easier for users to see if they are inside a candidate, account, vacancy, etc. we added the corresponding colors to the side navigation buttons as you can see below:
You'll note that the colors are indicated by arrows point to the right. This has been done to guide users to the correct part of their screen. This creates a natural focus on the information right of the side bar and at the same time the color reminds of you of the type of object you're working on.
In the category very small improvements: a counter is added that shows how many applications there are with a vacancy. It reacts to any search criteria you might use and is updated accordingly.
This is a nice upcoming feature from the Dutch community, an idea by sdejonge.
