Releases involving Bo Stevens

Bo Stevens March 21st, 2017

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.167 - Full copy of Job Orders, Anonymize archived candidates & New Configuration Profile possibilities

In the latest Carerix Release the following updates are included:

Privacy Legislation: Anonymize archived candidates

Over the past year Carerix already added some new features that can help you to fullfill legal requirements for the storage of personal information. As European and national laws become more strict recruitment software needs to support recruitment agencies and corporate organisations in meeting legal requirements. We already introduced the anonymization tool. However, this tool only was available for active candidate records. We now have enabled the posibility to anonymize archived candidate records too!

If you go to your archived tab you can make a selection of candidates. Once a selection was made the Anonymize button becomes available. It is also possible to use the action menu or to anonymize when within a candidate file.

Anonymizing a candidate record will result in deleting all information that can lead to identification of the person involved: names will be reduced to just the first letter of the name, contact details are erased and also attachments will be deleted.

Please note: it might be possible the archive tab is only available for system administrators.


Create a full copy of a Job Order

Untill today the function to copy a job order only included a limited set of fields to be copied. A full copy literally is a full copy: almost everything will be copied except for uniquely job order related linked files like matches and placements. Carerix for a long time already offered the opportunity to make copies of existing job orders, but this copy includes only basic information. Contact persons, invoice information and also fields were not copied. Often it still is desirable to have this information copied, so we introduce the full copy.

Information that strictly belongs to a unique job order still will not be copied. A match is unique and a placement or publication is too. Those entities will not be copied with a full copy.

What will be copied with a full copy:

  • all fields on all tabs
  • related contact persons
  • relation with company

What will not be copied:

  • matches
  • placements
  • activities
  • publications
  • invoice lines

Please note: the old way of copying a job order still excists and is available via the new job order wizard.


Email-address validation

This release introduces a long awaited qualifier for newly entered email addresses. From now on all email addresses that are entered in Carerix should comply to the usual formats for email addresses (e.g. something@something.something, something.something@something.something something.something@something.something.something etc.)

Please note: this rule only applies for newly entered email addresses. Existing invalid email address fields will not be affected by this update. This to prevent users from being blocked by invalid (old) information.


Search on matches in a job order and set stage option: only show match stages that belong to the applicable procedure

To improve the user experience the search for matches in a job order matches tab and the set stage option (bottom matches tab in a job order file) is adapted in a way that it only shows match stages that belong to the procedure that is set in the job order. Before it showed al possible stages, also for procedures other than the current job order's procedure which did not make sense.


Configuration profile: added all options for attribute fields in all entities

To further improve the configuration profile functionality in Carerix all types of configuration (hide, read-only, required (in new-wizard) ) have been applied to additional fields in all entities.

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.166 - Template Job Orders, additional information for activities, Configuration Profile and more...

In the latest Carerix Release the following updates are included:

Copy of template Job Order: First step only shows templates of the same company

When creating a job order from a template a list of all template job orders is provided. We created an extra step in the wizard: in case there are template job orders related to the company the system first shows a list of template job orders that belong to the related company. If none is selected in the next step all template job orders in the system regardless to the related company will be shown. With this functionality update we facilitate a better user experience by providing a list of company related template job orders first. If no template job order is related to a company the full list of (all) template job orders will be shown.

Added additional fields to Notes and Meetings:

We added the additional fields option to the Notes and Meetings section of Carerix. Now it is possible to create your own additional information fields in those activity entities.

Configuration Profiles:

In tasks set fields required/hidden/read only in function of type of task

In order to further optimize your bussiness processes with(in) Carerix it now is possible to set field requirements (mandatory, hidden, read-only) in function of your type of task. Ask your system administrator for more information.

Edit 'Related records' fields in activities

To bring the related records section in meetings, tasks and notes in line with your configuration profile settings for hidden en read-only fields it now is possible to adapt the fields of the related records section like you can do for any other fields of files that are available for configuration profiles.

Note: also matches have a related record section. This will follow next month.

NEO UX/UI: New preview placements

In this release the previews for placements have been renewed

Bo Stevens February 21st, 2017

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.165 - LinkedIn/Xing Browser, Configuration Profiles and more...

In the latest Carerix Release the following updates are included:

LinkedIn/ Xing Browser

Carerix released a new version of its LinkedIn/Xing browser 0.7.0.16. It contains the following fixes:

- Due to a small bug it was not able to deactivate the browser: fixed

- Related to the deactivating issue was the (wrong) message that the browser could not find a public profile page. This message will no longer be falsely displayed.

- In the new LinkedIn lay out it was no longer possible to scrape phone number and email address. We fixed this as well. Please note that: the user needs to click the 'Show more' link on LinkedIn to show contact details. Only if phone number and email address are visible the data can be imported into your Carerix system.

The Chrome extension will be updated automatically. You can check your version number by going to your browser settings, extensions. By checking the box (Developer mode) the button 'Update extensions now' you can manually update your browser.

Added Evaluation Tab to Companies file

It now is possible to have the evaluation tab available in the company file. To enable the tab the system administrator simply needs to add one or more table items for the table 'Evaluation Company'. Like it is for candidates and matches, it is possible to add a standard text to this table item.


Configuration profiles

Tasks are added to the configuration profile. It now is possible to hide fields, require fields or set fields read-only in a task. Meetings and Notes will follow in upcoming releases.

Candidates + contacts name: hide, set required and read only conditionally by status for seperate name fields (except surname which is by default a mandatory field).

Address fields (all entities): Set Read-Only or Required in function of status per seperate field in the address section. The entire set of address fields can be hidden in function of status.

Linking emails to related files for duplicate email addresses has changed

Carerix automatically links incoming email to existing files with the same email address as the incoming message is sent from. If there are multiple candidates and/or contacts in the database that have registered the same email address the system randomly linked messages to one of the contact or candidate files. This is undesired behaviour and we adapted this. The system now no longer automatically links a message coming in from an email address that has been registered more than one time. Instead we offer the opportunity to link the message manually to the correct file. Of course: in case the email address exists only once, the message will automatically be linked to the correct file.

User Roles & Email: limit All Sent & All Received Tabs to user office only

With this release it becomes possible to limit the all sent and all received tabs to the user office instead of all offices.


NEO UI/UX: Previews for Companies & Contacts

New previews will be implemented for companies & contacts:

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.164 - New Previews and Overview Designs for NEO UX user interface & Set fields Read-only in configuration profiles

In the latest Carerix update the following topics have been released:

New Previews and Overview Designs for NEO UX user interface

For all Carerix systems operating with the NEO UX user interface Carerix is gradually introducing new preview screens and overviews to further improve the user experience. To enhance user experience the user interface is gradually changing according to Google's Material Design philosofy. In this latest update the following previews are updated:

  • Email
  • Companies
  • Tasks
  • Meetings
  • Notes
  • Matches
  • Candidates
  • Job Orders
New design for candidate preview:

New design for candidate overview:

Other previews (e.g. placements, companies, contacts and leads & opportunities) will follow over the upcoming updates. Please note that in-file previews (e.g. matches tab in a candidate file or search candidates tab in a job order file) will not be updated yet.

How do I know if I have NEO UX user interface enabled?

In NEO UX user interface Carerix has changed a few things slightly. The menu and top of the screen have changed in looks and some functionality has been moved. The key changes are the quick search bar that in NEO UX is situated in the top center instead of in top of the menu on the left. Moreover, reports and dashboards links have been moved to the icons on the right of the top bar.


As an admin you can check whether you have the NEO UX user interface as follows:

1. Go to your system settings through the menu 'Settings', than go to the header 'NEO UX'

2. If you have the NEO UX user interface activated the setting 'enableUIDesign' is YES

If the setting indicates NO, one can use the button Activate to automatically transit to 'NEO UX'. The new user interface than will be available after re-login or - at the latest - after nightly restart of the systems.

Set fields Read-only in configuration profiles

As part of a bigger project related to the configuration profiles Carerix introduces the possibility to set fields read-only. By making fields read-only for all or some of your configuration profiles one can protect the functioning of interfaces and data quality.

Update: Update: cxLinkedInbrowser

Since LinkedIn is rolling out their new user interface our cxLinkedInbrowser experienced some problems.

In a new release (0.7.0.14) we fixed this. This new release is compatible with both versions of LinkedIn.

What do I have to do?

Nothing. Your browser plugin will check for updates automatically multiple times a day. If an update is available it will be installed automatically as well.

My LinkedInbrowser is still not working

Sometimes auto update of Google Chrome Extensions is not working, this is a known issue. If this is the case you can manually update your Google Chrome Browser plugin. To do so, take the following steps:

1. In your Chrome browser go to your Chrome extensions

save image

2. Make sure that you checked the box 'Developer mode'

save image

3. Click the button 'Update extensions now'

4. Check your extension list if your Carerix LinkedIn/Xing extension is updated to release version 0.7.0.14.

5. Your LinkedInBrowser is up-to-date again! Still experience problems? Let us know via helpdesk@carerix.com

Arco Westbroek December 13th, 2016

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.160 - Duplicate check on email address and phone number for manually added candidates

When candidates are added manually an extra check on phone number and email address will be done. Therefore, in the new wizard those fields are added. Adding a phone number will search in all phone number fields (business, business mobile, home and home mobile).

Updated New Previews

Based on your feedback we have further improved current new preview screen. Spacing of the header and the footer of the preview is smaller. In this way we generate more space for functional information.

Arco Westbroek November 29th, 2016

Update: Carerix Release 5.0.159 - Search in match stage history

We added a search functionality for historical match stages.

Carerix has been logging the history of a particular match for quite some time already. Until now it was not possible to search for matches in historical stages, only for the current stage. We have now created the opportunity to search for matches that have been in a specific stage during a given period of time. All matches that have been in this specific stage (at some point) will show in the search result. The matches show - obviously - their current status.

The flow works as follows:

  1. Go to the matches menu
  2. Set search filter to 'stages history'. Use the drop down menu to select the particular stage (icon at the end of the search line. Note: you can select only one stage at a time if you want to search in stages history)


  3. Select match stage you want to search for and set desired period of time
  4. The search result will show all matches that are or have been in the selected stage in the given period of time. Both matches that still are in the particular stage and matches that are already set to another stage show up in your search result
