Using Resume Inhaler with Outlook 2010 and IMAP

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News

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:

  1. Click on the FILE tab in the upper left hand corner.
  2. Click on the Account Settings button.
  3. Find the IMAP folders entry and double click it. The following screen should appear:
  4. From here, click the More Settings button in the lower right corner. The following screen will then appear:
  5. Click on the Deleted Items tab, then click Mark items for deletion but do not move them automatically.
  6. 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 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). 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.

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

Main Sequence has released PCRecruiter version 8.6 to our ASP-hosted users. While the majority of the changes in this update are 'under the hood' improvements, the new update does include two major improvements.

Insight SquaredOne is our new integration with Insight Squared, a staffing analytics provider that offers PCRecruiter users a deeper look into the pipeline, employee-level trend data such as time-to-fill, forecasting of sales and completed job orders, benchmarks of employee productivity, quality monitoring of field data, and more.  Fred Shilmover, CEO of InsightSquared, says “InsightSquared is very excited to offer PCRecruiter customers a comprehensive way of looking at their staffing data. With the new reporting tools at their reach, these companies will be able to better leverage their own data to make decision that will positively impact their bottom line.” To sign up or for more info, contact Insight Squared.

In addition, our 8.6 release includes enhancements to the PCRecruiter public API. This second round of API functions includes the new REST method, in addition to the existing SOAP method. The REST method will allow for even easier integration with our API for third-party developers.

Recruiting Software Does it All

Written by Blogger on . Posted in Industry, Topics

Main Sequence, also known as PCRecruiter, is a recruiting software that helps a business to narrow down the hundred of applicants it receives each day, by highlighting those applications most suited to the job. This software has an amazing ability to connect with your iPhone and iPad and even syncs with the information in your Gmail Calendar.

There doesn’t seem to be anything that this software cannot do. With many applicants competing online for work today, Main Sequence is a software well suited to companies that cannot possibly read through hundreds and hundreds of resumes and cover letters that they receive.

While it may take a while to to learn and understand the software, anything worthwhile requires the patience and diligence to discover and exploit it to its full potential. Companies that have used this software find their workload reduced and are happy since they are finding and recruiting the best candidates available to them.

There are new plans on the table right now to make this fantastic software even easier to use. One of these plans is the inclusion of voice.

With all of the glowing reviews that this software has had, it would do a company well to investigate it further to see what it can do for the organization. Time is money and if there is a software program out there that can save time and money, Main Sequence is it.
