The user registration page has been updated to the new Bullhorn Automation branding. Herefish was rebranded as Bullhorn Automation and thus some of our primary pages need to be updated to reflect that change so users can experience a more unified platform offering. Now, when a new user is invited to Bullhorn Automation, they are asked to register on a page that includes the new Bullhorn Automation logo and color scheme.
Optimizations have been made surrounding how we return the data in the Dashboard Metrics to ensure faster loading time. While the report criteria has stayed the same, data is now returned more quickly.
The way records are processed with Tearsheets has been updated to ensure we are properly applying the right value that is supported in the database.
Performance: High Volume
Candidate ATS syncing has been optimized to improve sync resilience during periods of high data volume. When customers have either a high initial sync volume or high daily record activity, Bullhorn Automation is now able to handle these instances with more efficiency ensuring there are no delays with getting data into Automation.
Our initial import service has been enhanced with additional self-heal functionality to improve our historical data syncing process. If errors occur, the system will automatically resume the sync process in a more efficient manner, reducing sync delays for our Salesforce and Erecruit customers.
Send Notification Emails
Support has been added for Salesforce, Invenias and Erecruit customers to be able to open records in their ATS from Automation notifications. Historically the “View In ATS” button on email notifications to recruiters would not open the associated record in their ATS. Now recruiters will be able to view the record from an Automation notification in their ATS without having to manually look the record up.
Universal Data Connector
An issue has been resolved where invalid data being passed into Automation was causing syncs to fail. Now, an error will display when bad data is being parsed into Automation instead of failing the entire sync.
The supported list criteria for erecruit clients has been updated to include Note Type conditions in Candidate & Contact based lists. Now when an erecruit client is creating a list based on recent activity, they can utilize the Note Type criteria in order to more accurately return records that have specific note types or have had certain notes added within a particular time frame.
An issue has been resolved regarding the Update step that is configured to update a multi-value field back in the ATS. Previously, the configuration was causing records to not flow through this step. Now, when the Update step is configured to update a multi-value field back in the ATS, all data types that are translating back into the supported data type in the destination field are properly accounted for.
Trimmed Phone Numbers
An issue has been resolved where Australian and New Zealand phone numbers were trimmed when Automation was inserting those values back into the ATS. This was mainly impacting Australian and New Zealand candidates or contacts filling out surveys that had phone number information, as those regions have 10 or 11 digits. Now, when people from those regions are updating or adding their information through surveys, the correct amount of phone number digits flow into the ATS.
The Candidate Status header column on the survey response CSV exports has been updated to better reflect that the status relates to the automation engagement. Going forward, the column will show either “Candidate Survey Status” or “Candidate Chat Status” respectively. This update allows for differentiation from the “Candidate Status” column which reflects their status in the ATS.
Location logic has been updated for semantic matching to improve country and zip code analysis, leading to better quality job matching in the dynamic job matching and match candidate features.
A gap has been identified in our opt out service that handles errors when Automation tries to update a record that has opted out of mailings back into the ATS. Now when a record opts out of a Bullhorn Automation generated mailing and Automation is unable to update that record back in the ATS, we will generate an email to the record owner to signify that the record chose to opt out but we were unable to process their request and to update that record manually in the ATS.
The Bullhorn Automation page has been updated to reflect our new branding. This helps create a more seamless experience with the application as well as the entire Bullhorn Product Portfolio.
The category in the conditions drop down has been updated to be labeled “Activity” instead of “Herefish Activity”. This more closely aligns with the values under that drop down category and also provides a more unified experience with the Bullhorn Automation application.
The standard content that is displayed within the Email Templates has been updated to reflect the new branding of Bullhorn Automation instead of Herefish.
Field Update Step
An issue has been resolved that caused incorrect skills to be removed from candidate and contact records when using the Update Automation step to clear skills. With this fix, candidate and contact skill data will now be accurately updated via automation steps, ensuring that essential skills information remains intact.
An issue has been resolved regarding the Bullhorn Automation iFrame in the ATS allowing users to opt records back into being mailable. This was a potential issue if applicants had not approved of being opted back into mailings. Now recruiters are only able to manually opt records out of mailings from within the Automation iFrame in the Bullhorn ATS.
HTML Code Appearing in Survey Header and Send Text Survey Question
An issue has been resolved where HTML code was getting inserted into text based components on Surveys whenever they were added or modified. Now, whenever adding a survey or editing an existing survey with text components, the formatting of the text that has been entered is displayed back to the applicant properly.
Initiate Workflows Checkbox in Branch
An issue has been resolved that was causing the OTE Step Workflow settings to not display when the step existed within a branch. Now, whenever you add the OTE Step to an automation branch and choose to initiate a workflow, the workflow settings are properly displayed within the step configuration.
OTE Step in Placement and Submission Base Automations
An issue has been resolved where records were failing to be processed through the OTE Step from a Submission or Placement Based Automation. Now whenever an OTE Step is enabled on a Placement or Submission based automation, we are properly referencing the right applicant ATS ID on our requests to insert into OTE.
Semantic Job Match Edit Button
An issue has been resolved where the edit function of the Semantic Match settings tool wasn’t clickable. Now whenever a client is enabled for Semantic Match, they can access their Semantic Match settings to change things like Maximum Distance to match records on, Job Posting URL, etc.
View Metrics CSV Export
The Automation Metrics page now includes an option to export the report results as a CSV. Previously, you could only export to PDF which only offers an image output of the report results that does not allow the ability to manipulate and format the results for broader reporting purposes. This now more closely aligns with the overall Automation Metrics page which does offer the ability to Export as CSV.
Hover on Picker Values
A new feature is available that allows you to hover over a value in a drop down picker in order to display the full value text. The drop down pickers in Bullhorn Automation do not have dynamic sizing to fix the width of values that can return in the picker, so any value that exceeded the width of the picker was not visible in its entirety. Now when a value in a picker exceeds the picker list, you can see the full text value by hovering your cursor over it.
Erecruit: Fields Not Clearing (Resolved Issue)
Previously, when updating or removing an existing value on a record, the record was not properly updated back in Bullhorn Automation for Invenias, Erecruit & Salesforce customers. Now, when a record is updated to remove an existing value, that record is properly updating back in Automation.
