Not all candidates will have a LinkedIn account, it appears they are being forced to sign up to a LinkedIn account in order to review their application added to a job. Can we please activate without having a LinkedIn account, will certainly make like easier in a client demonstration environment as well.
I just finished screening a candidate who had previously rescheduled. In the Screen page, I entered a note that he rescheduled. I've not completed the rescheduled screening and cannot edit or add to my notes.
I noticed in the preview that applicants are automatically sent and email when they are added. It would be nice to make this optional. We might be tracking candidates and not want to send them a note right way. I was also caught off gaurd when the preview just sent emails that I didn't know were going out.
On the preview step, my instance failed ot connect to my LinkedIn account. It never gave me an option to go back and reconnect. Going into the Preview, my job is saved but there is no way to post or login in to LinkedIn that is apparent to me.
It would be extremely useful to have a way from a candidate to communicate with other team members. For example, I just screened a candidate and I'd like our recruiter to schedule an interview. I'm finding myself jumping out of Dynamics to send a seperate email that is no longer tracked as part of the hiring process. Ideally, I could send a note to someone else on the team and have it tracked as an internal communication.
When interviewing candidates, we often collect information about target salaries and benefits. This information should be for the hiring managers only. It would be useful to have a place where we can enter "manager only" type details that are not visible to the rest of the hiring team (including the recruiter in our case).
It's often distracts users in the UK if they they US-centric terms. A stronger term for 'Resume' under the en-GB language preference would be CV:
I didn't see there was an option to hire for multiple openings of the same role on the same active job. It would be extremely valuable to a hiring manager and recruiter to have 1 active job to manage when there are multiple openings of the same role. This would also give more visibility to track status of hiring for multiple roles. As a hire is made, the active job order will show one less opening so a recruiter and hiring manager would always know how # of openings remaining.
There should be some other options for reject reasons to include whether a candidate is someone for future consideration. Many times, while a candidate may not be a strong fit for the role they applied for, they might actually be a strong fit for a future role and as a recruiter I want to continue to maintain a list of candidates for future consideration. If there were an option of a reject reason as future consideration, it would allow a recruiter to filter on these candidates and if possible have functionality to create a dashboard showing all candidates for future consideration.
A lot of customers would like to see a way to make maximum use out of LinkedIN takeover to match based on skill profile of the job posting. This matching engine should be using intelligence like Textkernel to be able to deal with unstructured data. The resulting people should be easily selectable and invitable from Attract. This is now usually a tedious task, and would still be without this functionality. If Microsoft would really want to provide a 'killer' recruitment app, they would definitely add more intelligence to LinkedIN Recruiter integration. And if I may say so, I think this will have a tremendous business case.
I created an applicant and went through the onboarding process, then went back to the home screen and wanted to search for that individual again. The search only searches jobs. If you're managing a high volume of individuals over time you probably want to search for them, perhaps.
Thought: Maximize the real estate on the page around “productivity”. For instance the blue section at the top looks cool but just takes up space. One piece of feedback on the 2 primary systems recruiters at MS currently have is there is wasted real estate. We would rather be able to see more things like; resumes, lists of jobs, other important or useful items to each user. I would prefer to be able to see more info, verses having to scroll down, over, or worst case keep clicking deeper to get to the important, usable data or information I need.
