Feature Update: Talent Sourcing – SMS Integration



Text messaging is an effective way to reach out for candidates. It’s prompt, it’s personal and you don’t need an internet connection to be receive a message. Therefore, we had already provided our clients with the ability to send text messages to a prospective candidates during talent sourcing. However, some clients preferred to communicate with their job-seekers through text messages to convey other messages as well. They oftentimes had their own set packages with SMS providers and were keen on preserving them.
The Fix: Configurable Messaging Settings
The messaging module can now be enabled on setting up a new BCC with a variety of service providers such as Souktel, Beecell, Unifonic and Jawal SMS. If the client has one of our integrated providers, the messaging module can be enabled for them in no time.



To add to this, it only takes a few clicks to define the purpose of using this service. Some available touch points being:
1. Contacting Job-seeker



2. Verifying the job-seeker’s phone number and marking it accordingly



3. Enabling a job-seeker to reset their passwords via SMS

Feature Update: Requisitions/Hiring Approval – UX Revamp



Gist: The User Experience for both Requisition and Hiring Approval modules has been revamped for enhanced functionality and user convenience.
What’s new?
– A more elegant, clear and readable design.
– All actions are now grouped in one single menu.
– A clearer label has been introduced that indicates the current requisition/hiring-approval status [Approved, Pending approval, Pending HR review…]
– We have a new tab called the Activity log which contains all comments, history log and actions in a single place.
– The logs can be filtered depending on what the user wants to see.
Don’t you like it when you mention your friend on Facebook?
We now offer the same experience.
A user can add specific user names or even a group of users by mentioning the role name in a comment.
Example: “@Barry Adams” will add comment for “Barry” and he will receive a notification as well.
You can also mention all recruiters by typing in “@recruiters” and the whole group will get notified!
– A better experience for assigning approvers for a specific request.
– The brand new ‘Remind’ action sends a reminder email to the user when a request is still pending his/her approval.
– A better experience when you wish to Change Ownership.
We hope find all these enhancements useful.

Feature Update: Job Sharing



Have you created a new job and wanted to share with other team members?
Previously to share a job, you were supposed to list all team members one by one with whom you wanted to share the job.
The Fix: You can now share jobs with roles instead of with individuals.
To come to recruiters’ relief, Talentera’s new release update allows recruiters to share jobs with roles, where all users within the role receive the shared job automatically.
This enhancement also allows recruiters to exclude some users from a role. So let’s say you’d like to share a job with all recruiters except for user X, maybe because they referred someone else for the same job or because they ate your lunch, you can share the job with all “Recruiters” role holders and exclude user X, instead of sharing the job with all users separately.




Here’s how to go about it:
  •         Go to My Jobs
  •         Choose a job you would like to share
  •         Click on the share button
  •         Select role / roles and share the job

Jobs Default Sharing Setting

Does your company require complete transparency in job sharing?
Maintaining this clarity for difficult in the past when recruiters were required to share a newly created job with all team members since they had to add every member’s name in manually.
The Fix: Default Sharing Settings
New jobs can now be created with default sharing settings across users and roles. This ensures that each time a job is created, it is automatically shared with the users specified in its default settings.
This solution can be enabled through the SMS setup page. If you are interested in automating your job sharing, file a ticket and we’ll get to configuring it for you.
