We’re back with a fresh Two Minute Tuesday, Main Sequence’s series of short videos with tips, tricks, and tutorials to help make you a more powerful PCRecruiter user.

This week we’ll take a departure from tutorials to show you a few of the more noticeable improvements to PCRecruiter that appear in our September update.

One change you’ll notice right off the bat is in the ‘Recently Viewed’ tiles that appear in the main Name, Company, and Position search screens. Where the previous versions of PCR would display only the most recent ten records viewed, the new version shows up to fifty. How many you’ll see at once depends on your available screen size, but you can use these arrows or dots to navigate, or even click and drag to see more. Look for more functions and enhancements coming to this area soon.

Another tweak you may find helpful is that the titles for your browser windows will now indicate the name of the PCRecruiter record they display. So, for example, when we right-click on this position and open it in a fresh tab or window, the browser tab displays the title and position ID. The same goes for Names, Companies, Rollups, and others. If you’re the sort of user who keeps multiple PCRecruiter tabs open at once, this will help you keep them straight.

We’ve also added some new features to the free PCRecruiter mobile app for Android and iOS, in addition to a round of speed and stability improvements.

First off, when you’re on a company record, you can now tap the ‘Names’ option at the bottom to see the people associated with that company, and you can tap the new ‘Add’ icon to create new contact records directly within the current company.

We’ve also got PCRecruiter integration into the native email application. When you select a resume file attachment from a message on your device, you’ll find that the PCRecruiter app is available as a target for handling it. After selecting “Copy to PCRecruiter,” you’ll get the option to simply ‘Inhale’ the resume into the default company as a new candidate, or to use something more like the ‘Add Resume’ utility to parse the contact info from the resume and verify or enhance it with more detail. If you select this option, you can also add the new record to a specific Company, Position pipeline, or Rollup list on the fly.

We have some very exciting new features to announce before the end of the year, so to keep on top of everything, watch our blog posts on your PCR login screen, subscribe to this YouTube channel, follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter, and join the PCRecruiter LinkedIn users group. If you have any topics or suggestions for future Two Minute Tuesdays, send an email to twominutetuesday@mainsequence.net.
