Ideas for Attract

New Idea

It would be very useful to allow templates to be shared between users. The default template will only allow sharing of one template. For example, if a central HR Admin creates a number of job templates, these should be made available to all Attract users. Currently, this is creating a manual burden..

Candidate rejection emails

When a candidate is rejected an email should be sent out notifying them of the rejection. There should be an option to select from a template or generate a new email from scratch. 

I was recently selected to interview a candidate, but they turned out to have enough people.  So, I was solicited for feedback, but have none to give.  I should be able to mark my feedback request as "Did not interview" so it doesn't just remain outstanding in the system.

Create a Job Template from Existing Job

Why can't users create a new Job Template from an existing job??? I created a job with A LOT of process detail, etc. but if I want to create a similar job, I have to start from scratch.

Candidate Availability

Is there a way to at least give a time frame for the interview request.  Many times the candidate would be availble in the morning but not afternoon.  

It would be great to be able to have the candidate see a time range, or at least respond with a time frame that would work for them.



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.

Extra email notifications

  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.

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

Status: New

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.

The As App interviewer currently cannot see feedback within the loop; on the hiring manager can.  Please also provide visibility to feedback to the AA in real time.  I appreciate limiting bias for the rest of the loop by keeping it blind but the AA is supposed to help look for this and is trained to do so.

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.

Reading data from CV into talent

Status: New

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.

Job description should be rich text

Status: New

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.

Third Option for Interviews

Status: New
by GKaleta on ‎06-07-2018 08:16 AM

Interviewers should have another option for candidate results: 


Candidate not a fit for this role but could be a good fit for a different role at MS. 


The interviewer should be able to "forward" the candidate to another hiring manager. We should take candidates who have these flags and have HR screen them. 


Driver: MS has invested time and resources (including travel costs) for this candidate and HR use the data we develop in the interviews. We should review these candidates for other existing roles or roles in the future. 

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. 

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. 





Navigation improvement

Status: New
by Woutvdb on ‎01-10-2018 03:02 AM

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



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.


Candidates for future recruitment

Status: New

I shouldn't have to recreate the same person multiple times. I should be able to add an applicant to a position if they have applied in the past and are already in the system (email and/or LinkedIn profile should provide that uniqueness).


Someone may not fit the position that they applied for, but they may fit into another position currently available, or that may become available in the future. We should be able to use this as a recruiting tool too, not just for job/applicant tracking.
