July 2019 Product Release

GREATER EFFICIENCY THROUGH AUTOMATION

This release optimizes administrative tasks so your hiring teams can deliver measurable results in a quicker, smarter way.

Modern businesses continually look to optimize processes for greater speed and efficiency. The latest release from SmartRecruiters focuses on task simplification for recruiters, hiring managers, and candidates through interview self-scheduling, mobile actions center, and a more intuitive application flow, as well as expanded data visualization options for system administrators and recruiting analysts to make better business decisions faster.

SAVE TIME FROM SCHEDULING, FOCUS MORE ON SOURCING

Managing a well-stocked talent pipeline can be a time-consuming challenge unless you have the right tools to navigate it. As part of the July 2019 release, recruiters can shift focus from scheduling candidate interviews to sourcing great talent. SmartCRM now has deeper functionality when creating new campaign audiences, more customizable lead capture forms, and stronger community management features.

  • Interview Self-Scheduling – Share schedule availability with candidates, and allow them to choose their preferred time slots in real-time, reducing the stress and time spent on back-and-forth emails or rescheduling.
  • Boost Prospect Quality with SmartCRM Updates
    • CAMPAIGN AUDIENCES – Include prospects matching selected values (location, proximity, community application status, screening question answers) when creating a new campaign.
    • LEAD CAPTURE FORM (LCF) UPDATES – Configure auto-reply messages; default LCF language via country code picker.
    • FLEX YOUR COMMUNITIES – Easily search prospects via the embedded search bar and sort by name or modified date; one-click filtering of prospect list by each community stage.

STAY ON TOP OF YOUR HIRING PROCESS
—AT WORK OR ON THE GO

Hiring Managers often need to conduct pulse checks on the status of open jobs or candidate profiles, and these tasks should be quick and painless. SmartRecruiters helps hiring managers remain agile with new auto-triggers within hiring workflows and high-level overviews from the mobile Hiring App home screen.

  • Auto-Trigger Assessments – Pair assessments with specific steps in the hiring process that automatically send to candidates when they are moved to that stage. This automation also works for groups of candidates moved in bulk.
  • Mobile Hiring App: Action Center – Quickly review your hiring funnel for active jobs and send nudge reminders to interviewers who have not completed outstanding reviews of interviewed candidates via the Hiring App home screen.
