8.2.01 - Released November 11, 2014
  1. Coding Adjustments
    • Connection to parsing tool updated.  If a user or applicant is getting a Runtime error when uploading a resume for parsing, and update to this version is needed.
    • When making a new online application template and selecting to 'copy from default', the fields for the parsing feature, CAPTCHA, LinkedIn settings and 'Save & Close' message now copy over as well. 
    • The status list available as a filter for the process 'Mass Delete Applicants', has been updated to only show statuses marked as 'Overall Status' since those are the only statuses the system references.
    • When using the On-Boarding feature to trigger emails to users of the system (aka the 'Internal Email'), the preview of the email will show on the bottom of the page regardless of if there is a default already selected for the recipient list of users.
    • When selecting 'Yes' for the Hispanic field via the personal information page of the Self Service module, the ethnic field fills in with the specified value based on the set up of the code.  In the applicant view the field is grey and cannot be changed.  In the user view, the ethnic ID field is missing from the page but the code in the background is completed so the data can be transferred to other HRIS systems or included in reports.
    • If an applicant uploads an attachment and doesn't include a title for the attachment, the title on the user view will simply say 'attachment' so there is a location to click on to download the document.
    • If using the 'Owed Only' option for the offer page, the page now correctly saves the new offers to the summary page.

  2. Feature Enhancements
    • If an applicant withdraws from a position via their view of the jobs in the Self Service module AND the Applicant Status Code for 'Withdrawn' is set to automatically notify a user, that email is triggered.  The email contains the same information as the standard Status Change email and the 'user' who make the change will indicate ONLINE.

    • The 'Self-Identification of Disability' form can now be a required form.  On the Online Application setup, there is now a pencil icon which allows for the setup to be edited.  If this form should be required as applicants apply for positions, change the field for the requirement to 'Yes'.

The original 'Title' field for the overall skills page title now reads 'Title (Plurals)' whereas the new field for the add and edit pages reads 'Title (Singular)'. Lastly, when there is a title in the 'Title (Singular) field, that title replaces the 'Skill' column header with the new title as well. All this was done to be consistent with the verbiage you are using.
  30. The ability to select more than one answer for application and requisition questions is now available.  This 'Answer Type' option is called 'Multiple Choice.'  When selected and the question is saved, a 'Multiple Choice' hyperlink becomes available in the 'Type' column much like the 'Drop-Down' hyperlink for you to setup values, points, etc.
  31. New security option added to user security which will prevent specific users from seeing any attachment flagged as confidential.  On the attachments page, there is a new checkbox to flag an attachment as confidential.  If the box is checked in the attachment and unchecked in the user security, then the user will not be able to see the attachment in the applicant's profile. This is a new feature nested in the user security.  If the client wants to start preventing access to certain attachments, then the Admin should review the user list to determine who can see these attachments.

8.0.00 - Released November 4. 2013 

Back to the Top

New Features (8)

Item 1: Alerts

A new feature of automated alerts was added to the system. The feature does require some IT setup but once that is done there is a library of alerts for you to choose from (upcoming interviews, approvals past due, incomplete evaluations, etc....) You select the alerts you want and import them into your system. After they are imported, you determine what email template that you want to trigger with them. As they run a 'success' and 'failure' email is sent the determine person of what was sent or was attempted each day. An email log for each alert is stored in the alert as well should you need to review an email sent.

If you want this feature to work the following steps need to be performed by IT:
  1. Create an empty folder somewhere on the CR web server to store the alerts program
  2. Download and unzip into that folder
  3. Double-click CRAlertsSetup.exe in that folder and enter your connection information to your CR SQL database AND whoever you want from the HR team to receive the success and failed alert emails after the alerts are ran.
  4. Go into Windows Scheduler and schedule the CRAlerts.exe file to run nightly at whatever time you want. Suggestions is right after mid-night as the alerts are date sensitive. Like (12:05 AM)
Once IT has turned on the monitoring device, the Cyber Recruiter Admin user can use the Page Builder page (Alerts ) to pull the triggers to the local instance.  Many emails are already set up in the system and can just be mapped to the "trigger".  However some emails may need to be modified or created in the Correspondence section. 

Item 2:  On-boarding & Tasks

This feature has been added to allow items related to the on-boarding process to be tracked in a consolidated view related to the applicant.  This tool can be used for more than on-boarding and has been designed to grow with the needs of an organization.  Tasks can be assigned to a user of Cyber Recruiter, a non-user of Cyber Recruiter, or based on the role a person is playing in the process (Recruiter, Manager or Applicant).  

The following sections of the software have been updated to accommodate this feature.

My To-Do List:
        This view has been updated to store not only note follow-up items but outstanding tasks as well. In addition, changes to the workflow in this page have changed.  Details on how the page will work starting in version 8.0 have been updated in Help Central on the My To-Do List page.  The goal of this page is now to provide a user a consolidated view of all Notes which require follow-up as well as outstanding Tasks.   

Group Security:
Group Security has been updated to include access to the Tasks page in the Applicant file.  The default for this page is off.  If this feature is going going to be used, the group security should be edited for the groups which should have access to this page in the Applicant file.  

Correspondence Templates:
Before using this feature, be sure to edit the new email templates specific to this module.  There are emails which are designed to go to the person specified as the "Assigned" person.  If these emails are not configured, the email will go out blank and the people specified will not be notified of the outstanding task. 

Applicant File: 
        A new page called Tasks has been added to the Applicant file which allows a user to develop a list of outstanding tasks.  These can be on-boarding specific, but could be just general tasks.  Tasks can be assigned to users of Cyber Recruiter, external contacts and/or applicants. Tasks assigned to a specific user of the system will appear not only on the Task list in the Applicant file but on the user's To-Do list.  Tasks assigned to external contacts will be notified via email and can "complete" the task via that email.  Tasks assigned to the applicant will be emailed and can display via his/her Self Service home page. 

Applicant Self Service View:  
        If an applicant should see outstanding tasks in his/her Self Service view, edit the 'Home Page' message via the Admin > Website > Careers Portal > Self Service Tab > Main page. Use the drop-down field below the HTML editor to add the merge field for "Task List" to the message.  It may be helpful to also include a message related to the purpose of the task list as well. The applicant will see any outstanding tasks required of him/her.  After completing the necessary steps, the applicant can complete the task and notify the correct users and the system as the same time. 

New Hire Process:
The menu for "New Hire Process" has been changed to "Onboarding Process".  In addition, a new item has been added called "Add Applicant Tasks" which allows for the user to be directed to the Task page during the Onboarding process. This will allow a user to see any outstanding task as well as to add additional tasks if necessary.

Applicant Tasks: A new page called Applicant Tasks has been added to Page Builder which allows the Cyber Recruiter Admin to set up default tasks which can then be used to create the individual tasks lists in the applicant profile.  Tasks can be grouped together into categories for easy addition (i.e. New Hire Paperwork, 2nd Phase Application Process, etc.).

Report Writer:
A Report Writer View has been added to allow for reporting off the new 'Task ' data.

Item 3: Apply with LinkedIn

When Applicants apply for the first time, they can now select to now apply with a LinkedIn profile.  
Additional setup outside of Cyber Recruiter is also required for this feature.
We recommend reviewing the Applicant View so it is clear what can be part of their view of the system. 

Fields which are extracted from LinkedIn include:
   First Name
   Last Name
   City (based on location in LinkedIn)
   Zip / Postal Code (based on location in LinkedIn) 
   Phone Number  (no matter what is specified in LinkedIn, the number brought over is mapped to the Home number)
   Home Email Address
   LinkedIn URL
Activity Page
   Connects to the requisition which was selected.
     Skill (Only adds if there is a matching skill already in Cyber Recruiter).  Category is also added based on the setup of skills in Cyber Recruiter; however, this is not coming directly from LinkedIn. 
     School. If based on a code table, this will look for a match and will add the code/description based on a matching synonym. 
     Degree.  If based on a code table, this will look for a match and will add the code/description based on a matching synonym. 
     Major.  If based on a code table, this will look for a match and will add the code/description based on a matching synonym. 
     Graduation Year
   Employment History
