Configurable Record Cards

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in PCR Updates

Our hosted users will notice a change this week to the Recently Viewed record ‘cards,’ as well as the similar cards that appear when using the Quick Find box in the upper right corner of PCRecruiter.

With this new update, users can choose two lines of field data to accompany the name, company name, or job title, plus up to eight user-selected action icons. This new configuration option saves you clicks, allowing you to access key actions for your candidates, clients, departments, and jobs such as sending emails, linking applicants to openings, submitting profile forms, adding activities, and so forth without opening the full record first.

Check out this short video for the details:

Also, if you have a few minutes to spare, we invite you give us your thoughts on PCRecruiter / Main Sequence by completing this short PCRecruiter User Survey. We appreciate it!

Earlier this year, SoftwareAdvice released their latest FrontRunners data. Main Sequence is proud to see PCRecruiter listed in the Masters quadrant, scoring 4+ out of 5 on most of the measured stats, such as Value (4.26) and Integrations (4.9).

FrontRunners is powered by Gartner Methodology and offers a data-driven assessment of the most capable and valuable systems for small businesses. It’s driven by real user reviews/ratings, and verified product data.

Main Sequence will be releasing a new update to our PCRecruiter hosting servers this week which contains major upgrades to the Placement features, among other general tweaks and improvements.

In addition, we’ve also updated the CSV export utility for Paychex users, and added a ‘Quick Upload’ resume replacement option in the PCR Portal for MS Outlook (download that update here).

Introducing PCRecruiter Analytics

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in PCR Updates

We’re pleased to announce the public release of the PCRecruiter Analytics engine, which gives you a comprehensive graphic representation of your recruiting KPIs with goal tracking for individuals and teams with regularly emailed reports.

With the Analytics, managers can combine recruiter activity and pipeline data into customizable metrics and generate easily understood charts.

Check out the video below for an overview, and contact your Main Sequence representative for details and pricing for activation on your account.

Timesheets Added to Public API

The PCRecruiter API (application programming interface) is the connection point through which external software can securely connect to a PCRecruiter database.

With this week’s update, Main Sequence has added connection points for the contractor timesheet areas of PCRecruiter to our public API. Given these new methods, authorized third-party software developers and service providers can now send and receive content related to these areas of the database.

If you are using the PCRecruiter timesheets and are interested in synchronizing your timesheet data with an external system, you’ll want to notify that service or your independent developer of this expanded offering.

PCRecruiter Update: SEEK, LogicMelon, PCR Canvas

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in PCR Updates

The first PCRecruiter update of the new year is here! Our development team has now shifted to a more rapid deployment schedule, which should mean smaller, more frequent update releases than we’ve had in the past. Check out the overview video and read on for more below.

We’re excited about the first few items to come out. One that’ll be very big for those of you in Oceania is our new direct-posting connection with SEEK. The new posting integration means:

  • Immediate live posting on SEEK – no wait time for candidates to see your jobs.
  • Edit and Delete jobs straightaway.
  • Improved custom templates.

To get started, reach out to Main Sequence’s International Sales Consultant, Ryan Wilson –
AU: +61 2 8005 8517 or NZ: +64 9889 0617


We’ve also added direct integration with LogicMelon, which allows recruiters to post jobs to multiple destinations, including 2,000+ job boards, social media sites,and niche sites. Track all of your posting activity in one centralized location. Our integration allows job and candidate information to flow seamlessly and creates a single solution for a recruiter’s needs.

For more information, visit LogicMelon.

PCRecruiter Canvas

PCRecruiter Canvas is where our product development team can present ‘sketches’ of potential projects under consideration, allowing us to ‘canvas’ you for feedback. By getting PCR users’ input earlier in the process, our team can better define projects, or make decisions about which ones ought to be developed at all.

Look for the first Canvas posting later this week!

Notification Banner

As part of our broader effort to better communicate with our users about new or proposed changes and features, we’ve created a notification banner that will appear whenever you log into PCRecruiter if there are feature updates (like this one) or PCR Canvas postings that you haven’t seen yet.

Notification Banner

If any new feature postings or PCR Canvas postings are available when you log in, the banner will appear. You can either click on the banner to review the new posting, or click the ‘Close’ option to dismiss the banner. If you neither view nor dismiss the banner, it’ll appear every time you log in until you take some sort of action. You can always get to the latest feature postings from the PCRecruiter login screen or directly on our blog.

Launch MenuThe notification banner checks for features or product update postings will appear on a ‘once per day’ schedule until you have either viewed or dismissed the most recent two update notices. PCR Canvas postings will appear on a ‘once every five days’ schedule until you have either viewed or dismissed all queued PCR Canvas postings. Once you have dismissed or viewed all postings, you can still get back to them via the small launch menu at the upper right corner of your PCRecruiter main menu.
