Maintenance Update

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in PCR Updates

Main Sequence is releasing an update on our hosted servers this week with a variety of fixes and minor changes. The most noticeable improvements are:

  • Rollup Changes:
    • The Recent Rollups screen now displays more of your lists, and has color-coded column headings for Name, Company, and Position for better visual distinction.
    • If you’re using the “Scheduled Items” column in your layout, you can now click on the header to sort the records by the scheduled item.
  • User Security Changes:
    • The ‘Copy User Settings’ area under System now allows for the copying of Activity default settings and MyPCR customizations from one user to another.
    • A new ‘Current User’ setting has been added to the Auditing Reports security option. This setting limits the user’s Auditing Reports output to only those records bearing their own username.
  • Position Activity Changes:
    • When entering an Activity for a Position record, the “Copy” panel now includes a “Copy to Name” option. Use the popup search to locate a contact by name, and the Activity will also be saved in that record’s Activity log.
    • When entering an Activity for a Position record, the “Schedule” panel includes a new option to add a Followup to the Schedule in addition to the activity being created.
  • While in the Customize window for Position record layouts, you’ll find a new “Configure Status” option under the Action menu. This checklist allows you to hide any of the default Status field options that you don’t use.
  • We have added confirmation alerts to the Activity and Note entry panels so that the user is warned before allowing them to close a text entry area without saving their text.
  • The popup selector for the Industry/Specialty field now includes a “Recently Used” option in the “Sort Results” dropdown.
  • We’ve added a direct link to our Learning Center into the menu at the upper right corner of your PCR window, next to your user icon.

Configurable Record Cards

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in PCR Updates

Our PCRecruiter.net 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:

PCRecruiter a “Masters” FrontRunner ATS

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in Industry, News, Topics

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.

For more, see the listing at http://www.softwareadvice.com/hr/applicant-tracking-software-comparison/#top-products.

The content for the FrontRunners quadrant is derived from actual end-user reviews and ratings as well as vendor-supplied and publicly available product and company information that gets applied against a documented methodology. The results neither represent the views of, nor constitute an endorsement by, Gartner or any of its affiliates.

Configurable Placements, Paychex Export

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in PCR Updates

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.

You’ll have time-saving Placement Form Letters, Custom Placement Fields for storing non-standard placement data, as well as the ability to configure your own Placement record layout for maximum efficiency, just as you’ve been able to do with name, company, and job screens.

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).

An overview of what’s new can be seen in this short video:

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 PCRecruiter.net 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.
