PCRecruiter Update 9.6.5

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News, PCR Updates

In the latest update to PCRecruiter, v9.6.5, we’ve made a host of under-the-hood fixes and improvements, and we’ve also made one more important change:

The “Reports” section under the Security panel of the User record (System > Users) now has more granular control. The admin may set full/no permission for each report type individually. In addition, these settings will override the ‘no permission’ System Administrator level, so that non-admin users can now run reports if the admin gives them rights to do so.

PCRecruiter is integrated with Intuit QuickBooks, making it possible to export information about your permanent placements and contractor hours timesheets from your recruiting database into your invoicing system. This brief overview video shows you how it works. If you’re a QuickBooks user (Windows desktop or online edition) and would like to get PCRecruiter connected, contact your Main Sequence representative.

Will PCRecruiter work on Windows 10?

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News

Windows 10Whenever a new operating system update comes out, it’s common for our users to ask if they can use PCRecruiter with it. Windows 10, which Microsoft began officially releasing on July 29, 2015 is no different. Our testing has determined that those who wish to update to Windows 10 should not experience any major issues with PCRecruiter or the PCR Portal for Microsoft Outlook.

One thing you should be aware of is that Windows 10 comes with a new default web browser called Microsoft Edge which is intended to replace Internet Explorer. While we haven’t found any major issues with using PCRecruiter on the Windows 10 operating system at this time, we do not officially support the new Microsoft Edge browser yet and you may experience issues in it until we have completed testing and updates.

  • If you use PCRecruiter 8 and are planning to move up to Windows 10, you will want to continue to run PCRecruiter in Internet Explorer 11, which should still be available by searching your machine or looking in your Start Menu. If IE 11 is not installed on your Windows 10 machine, you can download IE 11 from the Microsoft Store).
  • If you are using PCRecruiter 9, Google Chrome remains the recommended web browser on PC or Mac, but PCR 9 will also work on IE11 and Safari browsers.
  • After updating to Windows 10, you may need to re-install the PCRecruiter Launcher on your PC.

As always, updating to any freshly-released operating system remains something of a ‘buyer beware’ decision. If you don’t have a pressing need to get Windows 10 installed, you may want to wait for our QA department’s official go-ahead, which will appear here and on your PCRecruiter login screen.

Webinar June 9: Fee Catcher

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in Events, Partnerships

Recruiters lose an estimated $1,000,000,000 (one billion!) in fees every year when clients hire their candidates and don’t tell them.

Fee Catcher is a reporting service that continuously and automatically monitors your submittals, and tracks the movement of your candidates, notifying you when one is hired so that you never miss a hard-earned fee. They have already helped clients around the world identify thousands of missed placements worth over $18,000,000 in fees.

Main Sequence will be hosting an informational public webinar on June 9 at 1:30 PM Eastern / 10:30 AM Pacific with Jon Guidi, Founder & CRO of Fee Catcher.
