PCR Quick Search Improvements

The PCRecruiter system has been updated today, and the most noticeable change you’ll find is the replacement of our ‘Quick Find’ feature with a new ‘Quick Search’. This search box appears in the upper right hand corner of the PCR screen.

To use the new search, just click into the box and enter any name, company, title, phone, email, or Job ID. Hit enter and you’ll be presented with a list of matches across all three of the major record types — Names, Companies, and Positions.

Each result in the list will include key details like the record’s status, latest activity, links to related jobs or applicants, and links to lists it appears on. Click on the item to go to that record, or use the menu icon at the right of the result for shortcuts to common actions like composing email, launching a call, adding a profile, entering notes and activities, sending a PCR Notification, and more.

The PCRecruiter Quick Search finds Names, Companies, and Positions in your database.
In this example, a Quick Search for “sales Jennifer” found three candidates named “Jennifer” with “Sales” titles, plus a company called “Jennifer Monroe Sales Associates” and a “Director of Outside Sales” position with a hiring contact named “Jennifer Stevens.”

After you’ve started using the Quick Search box, you will automatically be presented with your recently run quick searches when you click into it again. Select any of them to quickly re-run the same search for the latest results.

Watch this space…

The new Quick Search in PCR is in preparation for some very big news we’ll be revealing this month, so watch this blog, our social media, or your email inbox for announcements. We think you’ll like what we have in store!
