February 2018 Update

Our newest PCRecruiter update rolls out on Tuesday, February 22, including nearly a hundred fixes and improvements, along with a couple of great new integrations and features.

The PCRecruiter ASP receives a long-awaited software update on Tuesday, February 22 which includes nearly a hundred improvements and code tweaks throughout the software.

Our development team has been working tirelessly on these fixes and infrastructure projects, many of which pave the way for some big features to be announced soon. We’re happy to be able to release these changes to you today.

Although most of these changes will not be immediately apparent to our users, three of the more noticeable items are:

  • A new integration with IBM Kenexa Assess, bringing an extensive library of robust candidate assessments to your placement process.
  • A new feature for Profile Forms which will immediately store the completed form as a read-only PDF for secure archiving or easy printing/emailing.
  • The PCR Capture extension for Chrome has been configured to recognize data on resume-library.com.

We’ll be posting in-depth videos about these new features in the coming days, as well as announcing some more very exciting updates, so please follow us here on the blog and on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn Group.

  1. Thanks for the info and look forward to your updates.

    I have to say when I have had issues they have been quickly attended to and I really appreciate that.

    Have a great day

    1. No, these updates are all on the servers here. The only things that would be on your local Mac are the launcher and the PCR Capture Chrome extension, and both of those will self-update whenever there is a new version available.

  2. Updates are great, but when they break other simple processes in the database, it doesn’t seem as the code changes were well tested. I’ve logged 2 tickets for 3 different issues so far.

    1. Hi Eric – Our QA team does their best to catch issues before release, but there will always be some areas that behave unexpectedly to changes under the hood. Fortunately, the developers are at the ready in the days following an update and generally find and patch major issues very quickly. We do appreciate your reporting the problems to our support team. They should be handled soon!

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.
