PeopleRecruit

The majority of changes are related to the Recruitment section of the platform. With the update we removed the main toolbar from the Recruitment menu to simplify navigation and save space, and moved Vacancies, Candidates, Hiring plan and Tests into the sidebar navigation menu.
Vacancy

Now this section is accompanied by the search bar that allows finding instantly specific candidates by their name, phone number or email.

Add New Candidate menu layout was changed, the photograph upload functionality was removed, since it is not used very often from this form. Users still can upload photos inside the candidate’s view.

The Applicant View

The Interviews section in the applicant’s view was updated and now the data related to the interviews is structured better.

Your answers in the Scorecard section get saved instantly once you toggle them. It is not mandatory to click the Save button anymore.

The Tests section was updated as well, and now users can upload pictures, add hyperlinks, use longer questions and create code snippets in test descriptions instead of the previous Question Name field.

When a user opens a specific vacancy and chooses a candidate from the board or list, the system replaces the current vacancy link with the candidate’s link. If a user refreshes the page, or sends the link to someone else, they will land right on the candidate’s profile.

Discussions and Documents

A new tab called Discussions was added to the Vacancy section, and it allows leaving comments related to a specific opened vacancy. Now, multiple users can leave comments, make notes, upload files to a discussion, provide additional information and keep all data consistent in one place.

Uploaded files or documents are also displayed in the Documents section, and it comes very useful, when you want to find a specific document quickly.

Candidate Documents and Onboarding

We have introduced another useful feature called ‘Copy Candidate Documents During Onboarding’ which is accessible in the Settings -> General -> PeopleRecruit section. When this setting is toggled, it allows copying the candidate documents to the selected folder, once the candidate is created as an employee.

Case Management

The management of cases became simplified, and now it is narrowed down to 3 Status sections such as Active, On Hold, and Closed.

Users can set up their custom descriptions for every category that they create in Settings.

Messages within the Cases can be edited now.

A user can assign a new case to a specific user within the system. Once a new case is created, the notification email is sent to the assignee, and to the initial creator.

Compensation

This section was split into the Salary and the Additional Compensation section, where you can specify salaries and bonuses separately.

Not only this functionality allows creating one time compensations, but also ongoing compensations as well. So it is very flexible in terms of managing different bonus types.

Objectives and Key Results

We have added the possibility to disable ‘Automatic Roll-Up’ functionality which allows preventing sub-objectives from affecting the target percentage of the Parent objective. Previously, our system was aggregating the target percentage of all sub-objectives, and was projecting it up to the Parent’s target percentage.

This functionality is accessible within the Settings -> General section, and can be turned on if you need to keep track of all objectives target percentages separately.

Multiple currency codes were added, and now you are not limited to the US dollars anymore when setting up targets, and can choose any currency type you need for operations in any country.

Key Results can be set up in a decreasing target logic, for instance, if you need to decrease your operational losses from 5% to 1%. Furthermore, the Start and the Target values can be negative now.

Tasks

The Tasks section was split into the three subsections called To do, Created and Completed.

In case you have many tasks assigned to you, then you can use the search bar functionality to find a specific one.

Internal Activity Feed was also implemented. Users can keep track of the task completion progress more granularly and leave comments if necessary.

We have also introduced the ‘Nudge Assignee’ functionality that sends an email to the assignee, notifying them that a specific task has to be completed quicker. Nudges can be sent once every 24 hours.

Imports

The imports section was redesigned, and now it behaves more like a step-by-step wizard that simplifies the upload process.

The field-mapping functionality has been added for the imports, and now when a user imports a spreadsheet it is mapped against predefined fields imposed by the system. And they can decide which column from their file matches a specific field within the PeopleForce. If some fields use common names like Name, they will be matched automatically.

We have improved the validation of the data within imported fields of a spreadsheet. It reduces the chance of importing incorrect data.

Minor Changes

The systemwide font for headers that was used in previous versions of the system was returned back to the original.

A very small but useful update is the search functionality for available emojis, that can be used to quickly find the appropriate reactions to announcements.

Another useful feature that we have introduced is the possibility to split the monolithic full name and pass it to the email template as the first or the last name respectively. Now you can conveniently choose the desired name form for your email newsletters.
