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
