We’ve got a couple of cool additions to make your recruiting process more efficient!
Impact: None - Optional new functionality added.
- NEW - Bulk creation of activities
We've expanded the use of bulk activities to both Contacts and Search result grids! Let’s say you have just sent a LinkedIn InMail to a batch of contacts and you want to quickly update those records in Crelate. You may now select up to twenty five contacts and create the same activity in bulk with notes appearing in the contact's activity feed.
- IMPROVED - Follow up activities
Another feature we've expanded based on direct customer feedback is the creation of follow up activities. You can currently create a follow up activity from the Contact’s detail page but now you may create that follow up from within another activity. How awesome is that?! Fewer clicks to done. You’ve left a voicemail with a contact and you want to add a follow up task or phone call – now you can create that follow up directly within the current activity you're creating.
Indeed is helping employers and agencies adapt to what's happening with COVID-19 and remote work.
Impact: None - Optional new field when publishing jobs.
NEW - We've added the ability to set a job as remote or COVID-19 related. Now when you publish jobs in Crelate you can set if they're completely remote, remote as a result of COVID-19, or in-office which will display and publish via Indeed. That allows your candidates to find your remote opportunities more easily!
Impact: None - Informational Only
NEW - Our partnership with Indeed allows you to publish jobs to the largest job board in the U.S. In this release, we’ve improved integration with Indeed as a whole by providing more robust data to help your job postings.
Our latest release features a new way to submit candidates to your clients. In addition to submitting via Client Portal, recruiters may now "submit via link". This new capability gives you much more control over who has access to your submissions and even allows you to see who views your submissions. This can help you reduce backdoor hires.
Submit by Link is available now to all Business level and higher customers.
- NEW - Submit via Link - When using a submittal template, users can now select to send via link instead of via attachments. You can even configure what Candidate fields to display when the link is clicked.
- NEW - Submittal Link Tracking - When using the new Submit via link feature, you can now see when and how many times a link has been used.
- NEW - Link Controls - Control how many times a Submittal Link can be used and how long it is valid for. This can help you keep better control of your data and submissions.
