Update: Carerix Release 5.0.187 - Carerix Social Browser expanded with VDAB

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live.

In this Carerix Release (5.0.187) the following updates are included:

Announcement: Social Browser expansion with VDAB

We are currently working on expanding our social browser with functionality to read, recognize and parse VDAB profiles. Functionality that already has been in place for LinkedIn and Xing for a couple of years.

The functionality will be the same as you know it from LinkedIn and Xing:

- browse search results on VDAB and immediately see if a candidate already appears in your database

- match candidates on existing job orders

- create notes on the candidate record

- if a candidate is not in your database immediately create a new record. Name, region, job title and a copy of the profile page in .html will be saved to Carerix

- update candidate records when they differ from the VDAB profile

What will be different?

Due to the nature of the VDAB website it is not possible to save a candidate profile URL - as it does not exist. We use the reference number of a candidate to let the Carerix plugin recognize candidates profiles.

When will it be available?

VDAB for the Carerix plugin will be released in steps starting from this week. A first test release will be released internally for Carerix and partners to collect feedback. First release for all customers is expected by the end of the year.

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.186 - Updates for Thalento and Vacatureverbeteraar (Dutch only)

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live.

In this Carerix Release (5.0.186) the following updates are included:

Added norm groups selection for the Carerix Thalento integration

We have added norm group selection to the integration of Thalento in Carerix. Now it is possible to select the appropriate norm groups per invitation.


Additionally we fixed a bug with the re-invite button which did not work.

Thalento® is a global supplier of cloud based e-Assessment & Talent Solutions. Thalento® Integrated HR Technologies have been incorporated into the Carerix platform, which means you can now access an effective range of pre-screening data about the competencies, behaviour, skills and motivation of your candidates.

Interested in having Thalento® integrated in your Carerix application? Please contact your account manager for more information.

Added job title for the Carerix-VacatureVerbeteraar integration (Dutch only)

We have added the Job Title to the VacatureVerbeteraar tab to improve the working of the feature. Without the job title the tool sometimes could not work properly, by adding the job title the system is better able to analyse the job order texts and gives better output. VacatureVerbeteraar uses the title field on the publication text tab.

Note: By default during job order creation the title field on the publication text tab is filled with job title, visible on the general tab. However, changes afterwards are not synchronized between the two fields.


VacatureVerbeteraar helps you finding the right candidate for your Job Order. Save valuable time creating an attractive job description for any targetgroup. Within minutes you know whether your job description meets your target group's expectations. You can start optimizing it immediately.

VacatureVerbeteraar helps you to:

  • Improve your job descriptions incredibly within minutes
  • Match job descriptions with the motives and expectations of the target group
  • Optimize the offered terms of employment
  • Check if your offer is market based
  • Recruit target group driven

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.185 - In-app help and Carerix notifications, Talentpools in Configuration profiles and more...

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live.

In this Carerix Release (5.0.185) the following updates are included:

In app help and Carerix notifications

As you probably already have noticed Carerix is using new technologies to notify you within the Carerix system. With the new notifications we are able to present you more relevant news. It mainly will be used to notify you about new releases, but it also gives us the opportunity to give you targeted information on specific (new) features.

Additionally we are using a new tool that enables in-app help. This tool is accessible through the new question mark icon on top of your screen, next to your username and the existing icons for dashboards and reports. The new tool will help us providing easier access to product and feature manuals and other Carerix information. It also will help us with some multi-lingual challenges. At the moment there is only limited information available, but this will gradually increase over time. The existing Knowledge base as you know it will stay in place for the moment.

See files and activities of subsidiary companies clearly distinguished at the mother company

We introduce the new checkbox 'Include subsidiaries' on the overview tabs in company files. By ticking this checkbox one can toggle on/off the option to show records that are linked to subsidiaries (child-companies). It gives you quicker, integral overviews of contacts, job orders, matches, placements and activities of all the first level subsidiaries that are linked to the particular company you are looking at. Files that belong to a subsidiary are marked with a subsidiary-icon so it can easily be distinguished from native records.

Screenshot 1: click on the link button in a company file to establish mother-/child relationships between companies


Screenshot 2: tick the checkbox 'Include subsidiaries' to toggle on/off the visibility of first level subsidiary

Talentpools added to configuration profiles

Talentpools and talentpool matches have been made available in configuration profiles. The fields and tabs in this particular part of the system now are available for specific conditions like hide fields or make fields required.

Navigate with your browsers back and forth buttons and use the green back button after drilling down in a dashboard!

Much requested and finaly there: use your browsers back and forth buttons to navigate through Carerix. Also the green button now operates after drilling down to a (e.g. candidate) record, so one can navigate back to the dashboard easily and is not forced to recall it via the menu.

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.183 - In-app help, in-app communication (Carerix to you!), UI updates and more!

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live.

In this Carerix Release (5.0.183) the following updates are included:

Intercom.io en Elev.io

As the Carerix user interface evolves and the platform continuously is enriched with new functionalities the need for tools to improve onboarding of new users and new functionalities became more and more apparent. Carerix starts with in-app help and in-app communication using Elev.io and Intercom.io. Over the upcoming period we will experiment with targeted in-app communication related to new releases and new functionalities. Both Elev.io and Intercom.io offer a vast range of opportunities for modern context related, targeted help and communication.

Update new UI in detail screens and all activities

The Carerix detail screens are improved. Grids and overviews now are aligned with the rest of the system. This means that tabs, grids and search panels are refurbished. This update also means the final step in the abolishing of horizontal scrolling. From today all tabs that do not fit your screen resolution will be hidden in a drop down.

Also in the all activities menu the new UI previews will be shown as of version 5.1.183

Use existing table items for additional fields

The usage of additional fields is raising gradually. Additional fields give you the opportunity to create your own fields that better suit your company's business. Since Carerix release 5.1.180 it is possible to position your additional field in the tab and panel you desire. With this release it becomes possible to use existing data nodes/table items by using the new attribute type 'Table items list'. After selecting this type of additional field a new drop down selection field becomes available. Here one can select the table to show in this additional field.

Select which maintenance sections are available per user role

As demand for light admin user role configuration is raising we now offer the opportunity to select every single maintenance section to be available per user role. Simply go to your user role menu, select the desired user role and tick/untick those menu's you want to be available for the user role.

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.181 - Add a vacancy from cxJobFeed to your Carerix system!

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live.

In this Carerix Release (5.0.181) the following updates are included:

CxJobFeed: Add vacancies to your Carerix system!

The JobFeed integration with Carerix is enriched with the button 'add vacancy'. Pushing this button will allow you to import the job order directly in Carerix following a Carerix wizard.

If you have a JobFeed account the tab JobFeed will be available in a candidate file. The recruiter is able to start searching for suitable jobs for this particular candidate right away. The new 'add vacancy' button within CxJobFeed will allow you to let the system import the most important information into your Carerix. The candidate you started your search from will be automatically matched with the newly created job order. In the wizard that starts by clicking the button 'Add vacancy' you can easily search for existing companies and contacts or create new once, if necessary. All new Job Orders, Companies and Contact will be assigned with the source field "JobFeed", so you are easily able to retrieve what was the source of the information.

Full address field in job order

To better suit our customer, integration and interface demands the full address field as is known from candidate, contact, company and user charts is now introduced into the job order as well.

Added 'Education name' & 'Course name' to the Textkernel Split Screen

To better accomodate recruiters to immediately put in the correct information while using the Textkernel Parsing service we have added the field Education name to the Textkernel Splitscreen.

Configuration Profiles, matches & candidates: added source + comment field for read-only option

For matches and candidates we added the possibility to enable read-only configuration on the source & comments fields in the candidate and match file.


Talentpools as a stand alone entity in pilot

The advantages of creating talentpools can be numerous. They can help you stay in touch with your candidates which will help you staying on their radar as a potential employer. It strengthens candidate engagement, which will help you fulfilling your customers demand at higher speed and improved quality levels.

Over the past couple of months we have been busy creating a more sustainable form of talentpools. While you currently probably are used to using your vacancies to create talentpools, it now becomes possible to have your stand-alone talentpool entity.

With talentpools you have a clearer overview on what talentpools you have and talentpool management becomes easier as you can send emails, create tasks, notes and meetings in bulk. All activities will be linked to the talentpool and are visible in the talentpool activity tab. As usual, it is possible to add candidates and contacts to a talentpool in multiple ways. By using the talentpool stage functionality it also is possible to create a flow to monitor candidate talentpool process as you are used to with the job orders and job order matches.

During the pilot stage talentpools are available for a selected number of customers. After the pilot stage we will enroll this new functionality as a setting to your Carerix system. Carerix system administrators will be able to activate talentpools to your system. The usual user role settings are available, so when activated, per user role it can be determined if talentpools are visible or not.

The talentpool functionality will be enriched further in the near future to better suit your needs. Future development is based upon your feedback and our best practices.

Keep your eyes on the releasenotes, for the moment it will be available for you too!

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.180 - Add additional fields to your desired tab & panel!

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live.

In this Carerix Release (5.0.180) the following updates are included:

Add additional fields to desired tabs & panels

A highly demanded wish of many of our Carerix users and admins: why is it impossible to put a additional info field in a specific tab and panel? Untill today it was only possible to add the additional fields to the general tab of a particular file (except for some unique exceptions). In this Carerix release we offer you the opportunity to choose the particular tab and even panel where this additional field needs to be shown.

How it works:

1) As a system admin go to your table menu in the maintenance section of Carerix & search for the additional info field you want to re-position or add a new one

2) In the table settings, general section: define the tab and the panel you want the additional field to appear

It is not possible to add additional fields to custom tabs or panels and the fields will always be added under the existing default Carerix fields it is not possible to reshuffle the order of the default Carerix fields.

!!CAUTION: any existing configuration profile settings for additional fields that are moved to another position will be lost and require a new setup!!


Activity Status per user role

As earlier introduced for candidate statuses as per this version of Carerix it is also possible to attach statuses of activities (tasks, meetings, notes) to specific user roles. Together with the read only tag it thus becomes possible to further streamline (back office) processes and align them with internal policies or the law. It now is possible for example to lock down a task after the customer has been invoiced for it and any further future changes to the content of it are undesireable.

User roles can be chosen and ticked in the table settings of the particular status. User roles that are ticked can see and set the particular status in Carerix.

Consequently, user roles that have not been ticked in the table settings are not able to see the status and hence can not set this status. Not individually nor in bulk.

If a file is set to a status that is not available for your user role, one can not change the status anymore. If one is able to change the content of the file depends on the 'record read only tag'. If this is set, the whole record will be locked - except for the admin user role -, if it is not one can change the content, but not the status.

Of course user roles that have the possibility to set the status still will be able to change the status unless configuration profile settings prevent this.


UI/UX update: tab wrapping in previews

In previews a new tab will be introduced that wraps all tabs that do not fit the size. In this way horizontal scrolling will be abolished in previews too!

Deadline indications

Tired of looking after the deadline date of tasks and meetings in the long overviews? Too many clicks to set a search filter that immediately shows all activities with a deadline on today or with one that is already passed? In this release we introduce a coloured bullet in your activity overviews that indicates that the deadline is today (green) or (the day before) yesterday (red).

  • Activity status linked to user role | Make activity statuses (tasks, meetings, notes) (un)available per user role

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.179 - Attach a user to multiple offices, confidential placements, UI improvements & changed IMAP (setup) settings

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live.

In this Carerix Release (5.0.179) the following updates are included:

Add multiple offices to a user account

To better facilitate organisations that work with multiple Carerix-offices in their needs for user role permissions, we introduce the possibility to attach multiple offices to a single user. In this way it becomes possible to see the candidates, offices and other files of multiple offices. If the user role restricts the user to only view items of the own office all items of the officies that are ticked as an additional office in the user account, will be shown.

Note: As of this release it is only possible to view files from other offices. It is not yet possible to create, edit or archive/delete files for additional offices.


Make placements confidential

By popular demand Carerix is offering the opportunity to make placements confidential. This means that once the confidential checkbox is ticked, the file is only visible for the owner of the file and - optionally - for indicated user roles. For candidates, job orders, matches as well as for email this option is already available for a longer period of time.

User interface improvements: introduction of tab-wrapping

Last sprint we announced the new previews to be available in the detail screens soon. We will start with a selection of customers from today and roll out generally in two weeks. The next step we take is the introduction of a drop-down tab that groups all tabs that do not fit your screen resolution. In this way we can abolish horizontal scrolling and improve the user experience a little further. During the first step of the implementation this tab is only available for the general menu overviews. During the upcoming two weeks we will start implementing new UI for grids and headers in detailscreens. Once this is implemted the tab wrapping will be in place in the detail screens as well.

IMAP Settings: disabled automatic folder selection and enabled the option to stop synchronizing a particular folder

For IMAP we disabled the automatically filled folders to be synchronized. As a user or admin you need to set folders that need to be synchronized manually during first set up. Additionally it now is possible to select an empty value which - once selected and saved - stops the synchronization of that particular folder.

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.178 - Introduction of the - succesfully closed - match counter, updates for the full copy of a job order functionality & bulk creation of placements

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live.

In this Carerix Release (5.0.178) the following updates are included:

Job Order: added a match counter to see how many openings have been (successfully) filled

The field job openings exists for quite a while in a Carerix job order. Untill today, this field has been nothing more than an adminitrative opportunity to list the number of candidates you are looking for. With this release we introduce a counter next to the job openings field that will show how many matches are successfully filled. The counting is possible by marking the match stages that correspond with a succesfully closed application procedure. With the counter, it becomes easier to track the number of candidates that have been placed. Especially for high volume recruitment organisations, but in general for all job orders where you are looking for more than one suitable candidates.

In future releases this functionality will be further expanded with trigger opportunities to further improve your internal processes.

Note that some basic setup by the system administrator is needed to make the counter work.

How this works:

1) As an admin go to your match stages menu and open a matchstage that represents a successful closure/placement within your recruitment process (of course this can be multiple stages too).

2) See that within the stage settings a new option is created via an extra check box. Tick this box for those stages that represent a succesfully finished apllication/ selection procedure.

3) Now see that the counter will count the number of matches with a stage that is marked as succesfully finished.

Default Status for full copy of a job order

Previously Carerix introduced the Full Copy button in a Job Order. With this button a user is able to immediately create a full copy of most information in the Job Order - except for Job Order specific (activity) information: matches and activities are not copied along. The full copy duplicated the status as well. As this is undesired behaviour as per this new Carerix version a (Full) copy of a job order will have the systems default status.

Create placements in bulk improved with wizard

Last spring we introduced the possibility to create multiple placements in just a few clicks by selecting the candidates/matches and applying the 'create placements...' bulk action. This new feature relied entirely on the existence of placement templates in the system. As those templates have to be available per company, the work process became too cumbersome. With this release we enable the opportunity to create a placement from scratch by offering the new placement wizard as you already know it from single placement creation.

Added filter lines to most multiple options list

To better facilitate searching in most default (long) lists in Carerix a text search/filter option is added. This makes it easier to filter those lines you are looking for! Note: not for additional info fields
