Ideas for Attract

New Idea

Extra email notifications

Status: New
by Woutvdb a week ago
  1. Sending a mail to a recruiter when an applicant has accepted the meeting dates, so that they can continue with planning the interview. Otherwise they would have to check talent mote often to find out if there are any updates.
  2. Candidate doesn’t get mail when they are rejected, it would be better to send a mail when a candidate is rejected because they won’t check the environment on a regular basis. If they don't get a mail the experience with company will feel like a bad one and that is not good for applicants in the future.

Interviewer experience

When someone is interviewer for a job position they can’t see all the applicants for the job position. This because this gives the insights in hom many time they will need in the upcoming period for interviews and to see if there are any cnadidates that they know from past experiences.

Navigation improvement

When you have navigated to a specific job, there is no possibility to navigate back to the page where all the jobs are. It would be better to have the chance to navigate back from the top bar to the all jobs page. This isn't a problem when a job has just been openen because navigating back can be done with the browser option go back but when a user has done some actions on a job application this isn't favourable.Navigation.PNG



Possibility to read the data from a CV into Dynamics so that a recruiter doesn't need to do the input for all the applicants themselve and just has to upload CV's to have all the necessary data.

In our organization, we hire external agencies for sending in applications for our job openings.


Using Attract, is it possible to give access to the external agencies to view the job openings and upload the applications directly in Attract? Our organization will step in from the next stage which is the Screening stage.




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.

Rating candidates

Would be great to include a rating for each candidate to enable a large list of applicants to be reduced down based on the rating given.

Candidate email for interview

The candidate should be able to accept or ask for an alternative interview date/time directly from the email rather than having to sign up/sign into Talent.

Rename reject for unsuccessful candidates

The name Reject is being seen as quite a harsh word within the application, particularly as we are dealing with human resources. Can you consider renaming the word reject.

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. 





Job description should be rich text

When creating a job detail, the Job Description field is a plain text field, but needs to support rich text for numbering, bullets and text formatting such as size, type, font, and style.

Hiring for Multiple Openings of Same Role

Status: New
by kimbourget on ‎04-19-2017 06:40 PM

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. 

Job Description Needs to be Longer

The JD area only allowed for roughly 2000 characters.  I tried to post a real JD that I had for an open position and it was 4500.  I had to cut out much of hte core text and imagine others will too.

Schedule interviews outside of business hours

Right now it only allows us to schedule interviews during daytime.  We're a startup and not a 9-5 company, and so we need to be able to schedule for all hours of the day.  Please add this functionality.

Communicate with Team and link to Candidate

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.


It should be possible to add your own custom stages to the process

The process which comes out of the box doesn't fit my companies hiring process. We need to customize the process and add additional stages to the process.

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:



Additions to employee self service

Status: New

Two things I think would be valueable to add to Employee Self service:


1. Enable employees to edit their Tasks list by adding and marking topics or activties with alerts in which they might need support etc.


2. Possibly integrating with powerBi and Office365 to create productiity dashboards. This can be something like what we have here at Microsoft in MyAnalytics - this relates nicely to performance goals and skills.
