Haley Marketing Release Notes - v4 (updated 9/9/17)

Follow

Release 4.3.0 (9/8/2017)

Job Board and Talent Showcase Updates

This is part one of a multipart update to bring products from a sub-domain into the main website domain. For example, changing the current URL from  http://jobs.yourtstaffingco.com  to  http://www.yourtstaffingco.com/jobs/.  We will be rolling out this change over the next few months.

The reason for this change is that it has tremendous SEO value, and has been identified by our SEO team as a critical and necessary change to our infrastructure.

This change does modify the link to the job details page to include ‘jb’. Depending on the way you are using your job data from us, particularly RSS feeds, you may have to make updates wherever these links are referenced.

If this creates a large amount of work, please open a support ticket and let us know how you are using your job data from us. We may be able to suggest some alternatives that may be easier for your to use. For example, all our RSS feeds can accept search parameters to limit what they return. We also have javascript widgets that use our API and return JSON formatted results that have much more fielded information than the RSS feed. 

Release 4.2.8 (9/5/2017)

Job Board Updates

  • Google Jobs - As Google continues to evolve its Jobs offering, we continue to make more enhancements to not only get your jobs indexed, but to make sure they are attractively displayed by Google.
  • Bullhorn clients who integrate BH with the Haley Marketing job board - We've got something that may streamline your social media posting process! We worked together with Bullhorn to allow you to share a job directly from Bullhorn, as opposed to using the share buttons on the job board, making it quicker and easier to get your jobs out to your social media sites. Candidates who click on your shared link will come right back to your job board to apply. See details here on getting started: https://haleymarketing.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004465806-Bullhorn-Integrated-Job-Boards-and-Social-Sharing
  • Trying to add images to Job Description and Additional Info fields? We used to allow them only in the latter, then made a security update that prevented them anywhere. Now you can add images to both.
  • Our job board default thank you message is short and sweet. Too short? For those clients who use the Saved Search feature, we updated the message to encourage your candidates to save a search, so they get updates when jobs match their search criteria. Want to make the message even more custom? Use the existing feature here to override what we added and customize the message to your needs.
  • Some job board with ATS integrations were having problems with location searches. We found that when receiving data with the state value spelled out, our system wasn't reading it correctly - we are now!
  • For clients using the location drop down on their main job board and the job board mini-search widget, the location search was failing to refine in search results. This is fixed.
  • Having problems saving notes to myHaley contact records? Those pesky apostrophes were the culprit. Use as many contractions as you want in the notes section - we fixed it!
  • We hate to see you go - so we're not letting you! Not really, we just had a styling issue on the Unsubscribe page with the lack of a checkbox preventing people from choosing something to opt out of.
  • API Healthcare clients who integrate with the Haley Marketing job board - We've completed some work on our side to use pre-emptive filters to adapt to API calls when 3000+ jobs are in a database.

Talent Showcase Updates 

  • Want to save some time posting to your Haley Marketing Talent Showcase, and have Bullhorn? We have the ability to pull candidate data from candidate records in Bullhorn. As a result, we've made some improvements to myHaley to communicate last talent feed time. For more information about integrating the Talent Showcase with Bullhorn, contact us at support@haleymarketing.com.

HaleyMail Updates 

  • Updated the styles on our newsletter and article display templates to make them more appealing.
  • Resolved an issue where some clients' newsletter welcome messages were coming from no one.
  • Updated CAN-SPAM links in notifications to clients and candidates to make it easier to update their profiles or unsubscribe from newsletters.
  • HaleyMail opt-outs confusing? We did some work in this section, making it easier to see opt-outs for specific newsletters, and revocation of mailing permissions for all mail, including last date modified and newsletter opt-out dates.
  • HaleyMail opt-in widgets weren't auto-selecting the list as expected – we fixed it!

Release 4.2.7 (8/1/2017)

Job Board Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Google Jobs - As Google continues to evolve its Jobs offering, we continue to make enhancements to not only get your jobs indexed, but to make sure they are attractively displayed by Google. 
  • ShareThis buttons on the job board have been upgraded to the newest version. Cool new feature - on mobile, your site visitors can text a job to a friend!
  • Pre-qualification answers went missing? We found them - hiding next to that purple, striped sock you lost months ago when doing laundry! Application notifications now contain the answers from the pre-qual questions, for your viewing pleasure.
  • So you wanted to change the Employment Type label, so you did - and nothing happened. That was us, we're sorry! This is now resolved!
  • Bullhorn clients - Want a job to reflect more than one job category? Now it can! Just login to myHaley and edit Searching Settings to "Enable Sub-categories". Non-integrated clients can also use this feature!
  • Bullhorn clients noticed an issue with jobs delayed in posting? We made some tweaks and jobs should be updating hourly, as expected.

Talent Showcase Updates

  • Enhancements made in myHaley to resolve image caching while adding talent. When you upload an image, the system builds several versions, so the image may not show up immediately on the client-facing interface, but will display for you in myHaley.

Release 4.2.6 (6/28/2017)

Job Board Updates and Bug Fixes

  • We're ready for Google Job Search with our enhanced job board sitemaps, making your jobs even more search friendly and easier to find.
  • When a candidate applied for a job, and that candidate was already in the system from a previous upload, we were not properly matching them up, which resulted in some weirdness with resume mismatching.
  • Resolved a bug with the job board placing a double period before a document extension, which made email systems block some attached resumes. 
  • Resolution for character encoding - accented letters were getting mangled in job postings - förlåt!
  • Solved a reported problem with errant capitalization and random punctuation in job postings' descriptions.
  • Sealed a crack in our job text importer - images will not display in job description; the only field that supports image/media is the "Additional Info" field.
  • Thanks for your feedback - We improved the Bullhorn application process to make it easier for your candidates to change their passwords after registration.
  • Password resets driven from Quick Apply welcome notification weren't working as expected - this has been fixed!

Miscellaneous Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue affecting myHaley reset password process for clients who manage multiple job board accounts.

Release 4.2.5 (6/5/2017)

Job Board Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Remote Jobs are here! Do you have jobs that can be done from anywhere (e.g., from home, a coffee shop, the laundromat, a soccer game sideline, etc.)? We have added the ability to mark a job posting as "remote" (or whatever you choose to call it), and allow candidates to search for remote jobs on your job board. This feature is supported for our clients who post manually, as well as integrated job board clients who can create custom fields in their job data sources, such as Bullhorn. Contact the support team for details!
  • Added support for capturing true referral source for candidates who apply for a job using "Apply With Indeed".
  • Improved accuracy of Apply button click count for our clients who use a third party application. We used to count the click twice if the third party application was blocked from opening a new window.
  • Different dates on different screens for the same job? For some clients, the post date on job search was different on the job detail page. Now they match!
  • So you disabled job board logins and/or use a third party application - and candidates are still managing to sign up and fill out the wrong app? For those clients, the sign up and application forms will no longer be available to candidates.
  • If your job board is on SSL, we can now send your jobs to ZipRecruiter to consider for job posting visibility. Don't have SSL on your job board? Contact the support team to find out how!
  • After a recent update, country field data stopped passing for Bullhorn clients. This is fixed!

HaleyMail Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Improved interface for candidates trying to opt in to newsletters who were already registered.
  • Stopped getting notifications when people signed up for your newsletter? Resolved!

Miscellaneous

  • myHaley login issues - Fixed issue logging into myHaley for clients with multiple accounts, as well as issues successfully logging out.

Release 4.2.4 (5/1/2017)

Job Board Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Bug fix: Mobile/tablet users were having issues uploading a resume with Google Drive.
  • Resolved issue when sharing job board pages (other than job posts). Job board meta data is now on all job board pages.
  • Clients' job IDs are now populating XML feed <reference number> node, as opposed to the Haley Marketing Post ID.
  • Long application data for non-integrated job boards is now coming through in the application notifications.

myHaley Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Didn't understand what "Active Account" meant on your contact screen in the Lists section of myHaley? It actually didn't mean anything - so we killed it! (The field was no longer relevant after a previous update of the job board.)

Release 4.2.3 (3/22/2017)

Job Board Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Want to see which recruiter's jobs performed the best in the last 30, 60 or 90 days? Try out our new Job Board report! You can export a list of jobs by recruiter, job title, job ID,date posted and total applications by job. Choose to include Active, Expired, and/or Archived jobs!
  • We've made some changes behind the scenes to make our job feeds fly! You can even use multiple feeds (categories, locations, etc.) on one page without compromising your site load times.
  • Sharing job application links on social media? Now the Haley job board application includes the same meta data as the job, so it looks just as pretty as a shared job posting!
  • Your timezone is now being included in your job board's RSS feed - so if you're feeding jobs to social, the jobs are not being considered yesterday's news!
  • Radius search has been updated, so 10 miles is the base search radius instead of 0.
  • Fixed "Job Board Sort By Application Count" to actually sort by the number of applications a job has - what a concept!

Talent Showcase Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Do you get bored seeing the same Talent entries on your Talent Showcase grid? Shake things up and set talent to load in random order every time the page is visited! Or sort by Oldest First, Newest First, Title, or Location.
  • Too much clutter in your Talent Showcase? Clean things up by optionally hiding categories and locations on grid view.
  • Is your talent camera-shy (or doesn't want their mug on the interwebs)? Want to display your talent in a grid, but don't like generic silhouette man? We've added a talent entry default image library to use when talent wants to go under the radar.
  • Talent entry taking too long to save? We now generate image thumbnails in the background after the form submission is complete - this means that the image you added may not be immediately displayed, but it will display within a minute or so of saving the talent.
  • Notifications when someone submitted your Talent Entry Form seemed a little short on information? Oops! We've updated the admin notification message template to give you everything you need!
  • Talent Showcase Notifications screen - Lots of improvements! Set your custom success messages for Talent Entries from candidates and Talent Inquiries for clients. And set up an autoresponse, too!
  • Candidates or clients complaining that they're getting a CAPTCHA error when trying to submit a form? Chances are, they were not waiting for reCAPTCHA to validate their entry - we are now preventing them from clicking submit until validation is complete.
  • Using the Talent Showcase RSS feed to display talent on a site on SSL? Images are now served in the feed securely as well!

HaleyMail Updates and Bug Fixes

  • When setting up new users, roles are now available or hidden based on your client settings, so you'll only see what you need to.
  • Improvements made to the mobile interface of the newsletter opt-out screen.
  • Exterminated a bug that was causing InstantMail not to show in HaleyMail reports.

Miscellaneous Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Various bug fixes to prevent previously experienced caching issues.

  • Access to job board settings limited for Franchise level users
  • Didn't find any jobs to match your search criteria? There's an improved message and buttons calls to action on the no results page to encourage candidates to keep searching or set up a saved search for future notices.
  • Candidates' "job no longer exists" message is improved to encourage candidates to keep searching or set up a saved search for future notices.
  • Added support for Bond Adapt date/format coming via XML.
  • We stopped attaching resumes to app notifications when candidates "Apply with Indeed" - we didn't mean to - we're doing it again now.
  • We had a short period of time where resumes may not have attached to the candidate record in Bullhorn. 
  • Resumes stopped parsing into the resume field in Bullhorn. This is now working as expected.
  • Did you see a few blank records sent into Bullhorn? We plugged a hole letting some spam through.

  • Improved Results for Application by Recruiter Reporting - When viewing your Apps by Recruiter in the Reports section of myHaley, recruiters will now be identified by name and email instead of recruiter ID.
  • Reporting Bug - Views by Platform were not counting mobile views, creating a discrepancy with Applications by Device. Squashed!
  • Phone Number on Quick Apply - In addition to being able to display and require a phone number on your registration form, these criteria now will display the same settings on your Quick Apply form.
  • Apply With Indeed and Incorrect Referral Sources - We found and stomped a bug causing incorrect referral source of "job board"when a candidate found your job on Indeed, came to your job board to apply, and used Apply With Indeed.

Release 4.2 (1/17/17)

Job Board Integration Rewrite

  • Our team has been working for several months to enhance the way our Job Board system integrates with Bullhorn’s REST API. While these updates will not impact the front-end experience or what you or your candidates see, they are a complete rewrite of the underlying integration code.

Release 4.1.2 (12/13/16)

Job Board Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Managing jobs in myHaley - Added functionality to retain filtered search after user views a job and clicks "Back to Job List". Fixed issue with category drop down not actually dropping down for some users.

  • Job Board reports for tracking - Added enhanced reporting to myHaley>Reports section including:
    • Views By Referral

    • Applications By Method
    • Applications By Source
    • Applications By Sales Rep
    • Applications By Post

Job Boards  Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Were you experiencing issues loading the Manage Jobs screen in myHaley? The screen was taking an extended time to load - or crashing - for those clients with a very large number of posts. To improve load time on this screen, we added continuous scroll. The jobs will load as you scroll down the page.
  • Account Info Notification Email Improvement: From a client request - we added First and Last name to FROM app notification emails.
  • Streamlined Save Search links when no results are found: No more extra, unnecessary clicks when saving a search with no results. When a logged in candidate searched for jobs and no results were found, the "Save This Search" link was not refining the search based on the original criteria - so it created extra clicks. When searching for a location or category not attributed to a live job on the board, and a candidate saved the search, the search was not saving - fixed!
  • Typeahead Location Search Bug: Candidates were typing text into the location field, which was being used for keywords searching - and not returning accurate results. Fix was made to force candidates to choose a location, preventing free form text in the field.
  • Job Boards and Third Party Applications: Eliminated bug causing third party applications to load in the same window. Now, when people complete your third party app and close the window, your site will still be open behind it, so the candidate can continue to explore.

For our clients integrated with COATS:

  • Text from default additional information field was not populating on new jobs after the COATS jobs file was loaded. This is now working like a charm!

For our clients who use Apply With Indeed:

  • Improvements to Apply With Indeed Application Process: myHaley now captures info when a candidate used "Apply With Indeed" button. Improvement made with Bullhorn integrated boards as well - apps now pass into Bullhorn - no need to manually enter Apply With Indeed candidates.
  • Apply with Indeed button was missing on the fast details hover screen? It's there now!

Talent Showcase Bug Fix

  • Resolved bug where upload of images to talent profiles was dependent on the case of the image file extension. Now files with upper or lower case file extensions will upload as expected.

HaleyMail Enhancement

  • Get more personal in your newsletter preheader text. Now you can address your newsletter recipient by name, or any other HaleyMail variable data, even in the preheader text area of the message.

Release 4.1 (10/25/16)

Job Board Updates

  • Reinstated Option for Location Drop Down - Not crazy about the new typeahead location search? Doesn’t quite work for your regional staffing company? No worries! You now have the option of using the JB3 style location drop down instead.  Just go to the Job Board Settings -> Searching screen in myHaley and select the drop down option.
  • Mapped email opt-outs to Bullhorn - You asked for it, we did it! For our Bullhorn-integrated job board clients, when a candidate opts out of mailings from the job board, that information is passed back into Bullhorn so your candidate is also opted out there. No more manually updating mailing status based on those opt-out notifications.
  • Captcha Validation Bug - Are your candidates too quick on the draw when submitting their app? Clicking "Submit" prior to the captcha fully validating could have caused candidates to see an error. We squashed that bug!
  • Manage Jobs - New Sort Option - Another request from a valuable client asking for a way to see which jobs performed the best at a glance. In the Manage Jobs section of myHaley, you can now sort jobs by number of applications received.
  • Manage Jobs - New Filter Option - Now you can filter your list of jobs by date on the Manage Jobs screen.
  • Manage Jobs - Sponsor Filter - We cleaned up the filters a bit so you can now filter jobs more accurately on the Manage Jobs screen.

Talent Showcase Updates

  • Added option in myHaley for clients to be able to set meta title/description for the main Talent Showcase page.
  • Tweaked Talent Showcase RSS feed to include images - so you can feed your finest employees' info and faces on your website.

HaleyMail Updates

  • Improved newsletter statistics - company name data, if available, is now included.

Lists Updates

  • We lost the list of categories for each candidate signup in your candidate list exports. It's back!

Miscellaneous Updates

  • Ever wonder, as a non-administrator user, how to update your bio or change your password? There wasn't a way to do that UNTIL NOW! Now you don't need to contact an admin or Haley support! There's a new "My Profile" section for all users to update their info and change their passwords.

Job Board Version 4 Upgrade - 9/28/16

Your Haley Marketing job board has been given a makeover! Our team has made many improvements to the look and feel of the job board to help you deliver a better candidate experience, and to get more candidates to apply to more jobs.

Check out our overview video: 

Here's a summary of the improvements:

For candidates:

  • Searching by Location - We've removed the location drop down and added an intuitive, universal location search function to make finding a location faster and easier! 

  • Multiple Category/Employment Type Search - Candidates can search even more efficiently by filtering their search using multiple categories and employment types - right from the main search screen.

  • Intuitive Calls to Action - More opportunity to encourage candidates to submit resumes, sign up for Job Alerts, and engage more with your company.

  • New "Skip the Search" functionality - Candidates can now "Skip the Search" and send a resume. This optional feature gives candidates the ability to quickly submit their resume, right from the home screen of the job board. Using Haley Marketing's new, shorter submit resume form will send notifications to your default job board owner and candidates will receive a welcome message with a link to complete the full sign-up process.

    If preferred, you can bypass the form and add your own URL to direct people to your ATS or a short form on your website. 

  • No jobs match your search? No problem! If a candidate searches for a job with criteria that don't match any open jobs, they're now encouraged to sign up for alerts or search again.

  • Related Jobs – Not the perfect job? Don’t worry, we now display related jobs based on the current search, or current job’s category and location, giving candidates a better chance of finding a match.

  • New mobile device definitions database enabled to ensure the correct version of the job board and application displays on all current devices.

  • Updated Referral Management System to ensure all features are working as expected.

  • Overall, an improved candidate experience with many ways to search and express their interest easier than ever!

For clients:

  • Want your candidates to see jobs in reverse chronological, alphabetical, or in location order? The new option to set the default sort order is a highly requested enhancement.

  • Better management of categories and the addition of subcategories. Clients who manually post jobs through myHaley will now enter new categories and subcategories in myHaley's new "Manage Categories" section allowing more control and less opportunity for redundancy.

  • Not happy with a category label? Change it! New categories allows category labels to be changed without negatively impacting the candidates or lists associated with those categories.

  • Have something you want to include in every job post, like a marketing video to explain what makes working for your company extra special or a detailed list of unique benefits your company offers? Now you can create standard Additional Information to be added to every new job.

  • Looking for a report showing all applications on your job board? We've got one! Export application data in several formats including filter by 30, 60, 90 days or by quarter.

  • Concerned with application fall-off? See how many candidates viewed each job compared to how many applied (or clicked apply for integrated job boards not using Haley Marketing's application).

Miscellaneous Bug Fixes

  • Crushed bug that caused Talent Showcase skills section to limit input and truncate candidate talent records.

  • Improved tracking redirects to be faster when a candidate or client clicks on a link in an email.

  • Extinguished bug causing problems with the WordPress login page.
