PCRecruiter 9.7.2 Update

As we previewed in this week’s Two Minute Tuesday video, a new update to PCRecruiter comes out today. While there are many fixes, improvements, and tweaks, we wanted to call attention to a few of the more noticeable items:

Tab Labels

Our new labeling system will appropriately title your PCRecruiter tabs or windows in your web browser, allowing for an easier distinction between name records, company records, and other windows.

Tab Labels

Recently Viewed Records

The area to the right of the main Name, Company, and Position search boxes, which used to show your 10 most recently viewed records, now shows up to 50 records, along with the company and email address for names, and the company for positions. Use the dots or arrows to navigate, or click and drag. Watch for more enhancements to this area in later updates.

Recently Viewed

System Menu Searching

Admin users may notice that the System menu has been reorganized. Most importantly the search box can now be used to find any and all items under this area.

Google’s new rules: a primer for recruiters

Back in October, Google announced changes to their email handling policies designed to combat spam. These new changes will be fully in place by February 2024. Yahoo/AOL has announced similar policies and others will likely follow suit. While the changes should mostly have a positive effect — reducing the amount of junk and scams that get to inboxes — they could have a negative effect on your recruiting process if you rely heavily on cold email or aren’t using properly configured outgoing email systems.
