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.
