raw engineering’s Challenge

We had not been using any other tool in the past. As a result, the recruitment process was very slow and inefficient. We were having a particularly difficult time keeping track of applicants.

Zoho Solution

We have been long-time users of Zoho People and Zoho Projects, so we already knew the company and knew that we really liked their applications. It was no surprise that when we tried Zoho Recruit, we found it very quick and easy-to-use. It’s a very effective way of managing the recruitment process. The interface is great as well. And we get excellent support from Zoho. Now, we use Zoho Recruit to post job openings, track applicants and maintain our resume database. In the future, we would like to use other features that it provides. We would like to sign up for a few more recruiters in the future as it has made our job much simpler and more effective.

Zoho Recruit Impact

With Zoho Recruit, we can track applicants very easily and quickly. Overall, Zoho Recruit has made our recruitment process very easy, very effective and very organized.

Zoho Recruit features Custom View and Bulk Update

Posted by Posted on by

At Zoho Recruit, over the last few weeks we’ve been working on two new features – Custom View and Bulk Update. Today we are happy to announce the availability of both these features.

Custom View

Zoho Recruit’s Custom View helps you to filter data with multiple criteria and save it for future reference. For instance, lets assume these two scenarios that you often get requirements from your clients/department heads:

1. Candidates who are located in Newyork with 5 years of experience with Java
2. Candidates Age (no:of:days since the candidate is created/updated in Zoho Recruit)

In such cases, instead of keying in the details everytime into the Advanced search, you can quickly create a custom view by specifying these criteria, which will list all the related candidates. The custom view that is created is automatically saved, so you can quickly refer to it whenever required. And not only that, the custom view content is automatically updated each time when you open to find the details.

 


Zoho Recruit allows you to create multiple custom views, providing the edit, delete and clone options along with it. 
Let’s also take a look at the other options available in Custom View:

Displaying Custom Views
You can choose to display each custom view either in Gird or Summary with the required fields.

Specifying Criteria
Zoho Recruit allows you to create custom views with multiple criteria by specifying the field name, condition and value. You can also define the criteria using the AND OR combinations. The Criteria pattern helps you get a glimpse of the custom view result for the defined criteria.

Sharing Custom Views
Zoho Recruit provides three different custom view sharing options, which helps you to define the users accessibility. 
  1. Allow all users to access the custom view 
  2. Keep the custom view private to yourself
  3. Share the Custom view to users individually or based on the roles 

Bulk Update

The bulk update feature enables you to simultaneously update information to a group of candidates, job openings, clients and client contacts. 


For example, lets say you want to associate multiple tags for a group of candidates. To perform this action, previously you had to associate only one tag at a time for a group of candidates, but now with bulk update you can associate multiple tags for a selected group of candidates in one go. 


Apart from this you can also perform the Bulk Update action for 
  • Publishing and un-publishing job openings
  • Changing clients primary contact
  • Removal of tags
  • Changing the owner
  • Changing the candidate source and many more.
