Representatives from Main Sequence will be joining our partners from Scout at their booth for next week's Staffing Industry Analysts Executive Forum in San Diego. We're very excited about the new integration with the Scout recruitment marketplace and will be there to help show how PCRecruiter and Scout work together to bring recruiters broader and bigger placement opportunities.
Tucker is a one-year-old Golden Retriever who spends most of his days hanging out at the main office of Main Sequence Technology, Inc. Tucker wanders the grounds and keeps us all company as we develop, sell and support PCRecruiter. This year’s holiday greeting is a glimpse into what Tucker sees as he visits with everyone and attends the MST holiday party. Happy new year, everyone!
Our friends at Software Advice have analyzed the new Inc., Magazine "Inc. 5000." list and have compared it with the 2008 listing. Their conclusion is that the "HR ecosystem" has grown and changed, consolidating, gaining employees and generating more revenue than five years ago. We'd like to think PCRecruiter has something to do with that, naturally.

Source emails may be inadvertently being deleted by your email provider without your knowledge.
A recently discovered interaction combines Outlook 2010 with Gmail IMAP (and possibly other IMAP providers) such that Outlook is moving emails to the deleted items folder rather than the designated subfolder configured in the Inhaler. This result will in turn will synchronize to Gmail, which will then purge the item after 30 days. This mal-response to a move command from PCRecruiter does not occur in Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2013 nor all Outlook 2010 environments using IMAP.
To see if you are subject to this please a) observe that the Inhaler is moving items to the proper subfolders and/or b) check your deleted items folder in Outlook and your deleted items folder in Gmail to ensure that wanted resume emails have not been moved to those locations.
While we have no expectation that Microsoft will make any changes to Outlook 2010, there is a workaround if you find that you are subject to this issue.
To apply this workaround, open Outlook 2010 and follow these instructions:
- Click on the FILE tab in the upper left hand corner.
- Click on the Account Settings button.
Find the IMAP folders entry and double click it. The following screen should appear:
From here, click the More Settings button in the lower right corner. The following screen will then appear:
- Click on the Deleted Items tab, then click Mark items for deletion but do not move them automatically.
- Click OK/Next until all the account settings have been closed.
PCRecruiter 8.6.2 Patches
Main Sequence will be updating the ASP hosting service with PCRecruiter v. 8.6.2 at approximately 8 AM EST on Thursday, November 7, 2013. Along with this update, we highly recommend installing updated control plugins:
Internet Explorer Users – A new version of our ActiveX/.NET control pack will be released with this update. Download it from www.pcrecruiter.net/controls.exe and install it on any Windows 7 or Windows 8 machine using PCRecruiter (XP users should not update). You may need administrator permissions on the computer to complete this installation.
Java Controls – All users of the Java plugins (including all users of Firefox or Safari) will be asked to update to Java 7 v 45 (see https://java.com/getjava). Users working with an older version of Java may see a popup security request when accessing screens that require a Java plugin (viewing resumes, job descriptions, etc.). NOTE: Users of Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) will be unable to update to Java 7 and therefore unable to avoid the popup warnings. We recommend updating these Macs to OSX 10.7 or later.
