Improved Productivity for Power Users

Talent Acquisition often requires managing multiple projects and tasks at the same time, and it’s important that teams work more efficiently and reduce the amount of time spent on non-value-added tasks. New updates include:

  • MASS STATUS CHANGE – Move multiple candidates to any stage or step in the hiring process with a few simple clicks
  • SCREENING QUESTIONS IN FILTERS – Filter candidates by their answers to a specific list of historical / current screening questions, and create saved searches based on responses
