Earlier, when you click on the Publish in website link, all the customization options appeared in a single screen. But now, to make your experience better, we have split these options into different segments like Look & FeelJob opening fieldsCandidate fieldsEmail alerts and Published job openings.

b. Customization Options:
In the Look & Feel tab, you can now customize the Apply Now button with your own label. And if you do not want the candidates to click on this button, you can disable it from showing in the websiteIn addition to this, there’s another new option, where you can customize the display message when there is no job openings published in your website.

 

c. Candidate form fields for each job opening:
You can now choose to show/hide specific candidate fields for each published job opening. For example, the candidate form fields required for an Analyst position may differ from those for a Manager position. In such cases, you can choose the fields to be displayed for each job opening.

Apart from this, there are a few other enhancements too.

In the Log an Activity section, you can now define and add your own activity types. For example, say Candidate InterviewsClient Meetings, etc.

Workflow Automation in Zoho Recruit

Posted by Posted on by

The world continues to morph us with ever faster lives. And we no longer can expect recruiters to do everything manually as it’s not a smart use of resources. 
For instance, let’s say the Sales team in an organization creates job openings for the clients. Once the job openings are created, the recruiters start to work on different stages of the recruitment process – source, track and hire candidates. When the candidate gets selected and hired for the job opening, the recruiter changes the candidate status to hired. Now, the recruiter should keep the sales team updated about the candidate hired information, to process the invoice for the clients. Doing these frequent updates manually makes the work more hectic.
Processes must be streamlined in a better way to cater to the needs of the new generation. The more your work flow is automated, the better it is. 
Zoho Recruit – Applicant Tracking System now allows to set your workflow, to trigger customized email notifications to all the specified recipients – on status change of candidates and job openings. This workflow automation helps you to enhance your team’s collaboration and productivity.  

We hope you find this improvement useful. Thanks again for using Zoho Recruit and do let us know your feedback.

These enhancements have come about as a result of listening to our users’ – that is you, dear readers – recommendations. And we attribute Zoho Recruit’s big success to our users’ suggestions.

In this case you can use the multi-select pick list (instead of the single pick list option) and this helps the candidates to choose multiple skills in which they are qualified.

Spanish, Korean and Portuguese Languages Support

Rich Text Editor for Composing Email Messages
With mail inside Zoho Recruit, you can not only send plain text emails or messages containing attachments but can now send Rich Text formatted emails with the ability to change the colors, font, font size, text alignments, insert images and links, etc.

Earlier my email messages were simple.
