Update: Release Notes - Beamery 4.0: Workflow enhancements

Beamery 4.0 sees over multiple updates made to the core Beamery platform leading to improved and faster workflows for users. Here are some highlights:

CRM Filters

We have released two major upgrades to filtering in Beamery:

  • ‘Contains’ filters - to enable better identification when filtering 'Title' and 'Company', with ‘Location’ and ‘Keywords’ to follow. This means you can filter candidates based on a partial text search. For example, you can enter part of a job title or part of a company name to search for candidates in your CRM. Search results appear immediately as soon as you start typing.
  • Default Filters - organisations can now set a default filter, which can be used to automatically exclude certain contacts ‘by default’ within any view within the CRM. For example, you can exclude ‘rejected candidates’ or contacts in a certain status from appearing, until the default filter is removed.

Bulk Actions in Advanced Search

Beamery 4.0 enables a ‘bulk action’ to be applied following any boolean search. This allows users to take all the candidates resulting from an advanced search, and assign them all, in one single action, to a pool or to a vacancy, or to apply a tag.

Sourcing typically starts with searching. Being the start of the process also implies that sourcers will throw a wide net, and include many contacts in their subsequent actions.

Beamery Advanced Search currently supports a lot of post-search actions such as adding a candidate, one at a time, to a vacancy, a pool, a campaign, or more. Expanding this to enable bulk actions has been one of our most frequently requested features, and we hope this can make a significant impact on the workflow of all sourcers starting a new search.

Email Digest

Beamery 4.0 delivers a completely redesigned email digest. Rebuilt around the needs of sourcers and marketers, it provides a daily, or weekly, overview of everything noteworthy that happened during the previous time period.

The daily digest email is an existing feature that all users can already receive; however, the current digest only shows notifications based on @mentions and tasks. The new digest expands upon this to provide key activities and notifications across all areas of the product, with actionable insights that link directly back to the right area of the Beamery app. Among other pieces of information, the new digest will include:

  • Tasks: overdue, upcoming, and all unread mentions
  • User’s contacts: updates on new contacts added to the pools and vacancies that the user is managing (either as a creator/owner or as an assigned manager)
  • Messages in campaigns: emails delivered, opened, clicked

Recipe Actions

Beamery 4.0 sees a series of new recipe actions allowing for improved candidate data management in your CRM.

Archive - You can now automate candidate archiving when certain triggers are satisfied. For example, if a candidate unsubscribes from a campaign or upon a particular status update, candidates can now be removed from the core CRM and moved into the Archive area of the People grid. Candidates can always be 'un-archived' and moved back into the core CRM at any time. 

Do Not Contact - Users can now mark candidates as 'Do Not Contact' with a recipe. For example, you can create a recipe to mark candidates as 'Do Not Contact' upon a particular status update, or if they unsubscribe from a campaign. Marking a candidate as 'Do Not Contact' means they cannot be added to any campaign in Beamery. You can see from a candidate's profile if they have been marked as 'Do Not Contact'. You can remove this from a candidate's profile at any time so they can be re-added to campaigns.

Assign to source - You can now automatically assign a source to a candidate who is added into Beamery. This is particularly useful for candidates added through the Extension, for example, as you can assign a particular network or platform (e.g. LinkedIn, GitHub) as their source. This information feeds into the analytics reporting engine to provide insights into the most effective sources for candidates in your team.
