New Feature: Release Notes - Our biggest update coming on Tuesday 13th

A few weeks ago, we announced our upcoming Beamery 3.0 new navigation. We're pleased to say it'll be live on Tuesday 13th March.

Good things always come in pairs, so we have also released custom footers for pages and forms (and another usability enhancement on the extension!)

New Navigation

The time has come to introduce a new, more intuitive navigation as the flagship element to our upcoming Beamery 3.0 release. You’ll enjoy a faster user experience and notice that there’s now more space for us to grow.

How does the new navigation work?

The all new navigation is broken down into four primary components:

  1. The Main Navigation bar is where you’ll see some familiar features grouped into products’, these being the CRM, Talent Marketing and Reporting. The navigation bar will always appear no matter where you are in the app
  2. The Features bar contains the primary functions within each Beamery product group; in the CRM for example, you’ll see tabs for Vacancies, Pools and the People database
  3. The Sub-Navigation bar sits directly below and includes all filters and actions associated with each function in the above Features bar’
  4. The main content section which contains all of your important pipeline, marketing and reporting data

Where does everything live?

The new Beamery 3.0 navigation starts at your home dashboard. It shows your tasks, candidates, vacancies and pools as you can see in the current navigation.

The new CRM view contains Vacancies, Pools and the re-named People’ database (currently called All Contacts’ in Beamery), and is where you’ll find all candidates and leads. Marketing brings together Campaigns, Pages & Forms and the Beamery Widget into one place, whereas currently in Beamery, these features exist in the main navigation and within your Settings. Reporting remains as a separate item but moves to the new navigation bar and contains all of the same reports you currently use.

Candidate Quick Search’ is always accessible no matter where you are in Beamery, as is the Advanced’ search experience, both of which you can find at the top right in the new navigation.

The Notifications’ and Explore Beamery’ modules along with your account Settings remain in the main navigation, but you’ll now find these in the bottom left of the screen (currently at the top right of Beamery). For all of these features, once you’ve clicked, you’ll find everything in exactly the same place as before.

The new navigation has been updated on our mobile app as well, so you can continue to manage Beamery on the go. The mobile navigation specifically supports the People database, quick search, mini-profiles and Tasks, but you will still have access to at least part of the functionalities of the remaining features.

So what's new?

The new navigation brings you a faster and more intuitive experience as we continue to grow Beamery (and of course, it looks a lot better!). The new layout means we can add new products and solutions into the main navigation bar, and new features that complement existing ones; you’ll see this with the upcoming launch of Beamery 3.0.

Custom Footers

Customers can display up to five URLs, such as links to their privacy policy, terms and conditions, information about other roles, and contact details.

The site notice can be used to present additional information to share with candidates, such as legal statements and disclaimers. You can include further links and format the text to match the page or form.

The social media icons that customers can choose from are: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Glassdoor and WeChat.

Extension 5.0

Managing Vacancies, Pools and Campaigns in the Extension are some of the most used features within the Extension. However, it requires a lot of clicks before you get to them: you have to move between tabs to reach them.

We realised that 1) this adds extra time and 1) you cannot even review all three of them together.

With our latest release you can now manage Vacancies, Pools and Campaigns together in the same and first tab: Summary.
Same functionality, just easier to use.

In addition, we have optimised the Fields Tab. If you have many custom fields, you can now search for a custom field to enter information as well as find Global Tags next to Keywords.

Having moved the most used features to the Summary tab, you will now see the Closest Connections and Latest message in the Related tab.





Coming Soon

Here are the things we are working on and that we will be releasing soon:

Team Leaderboard: We're building a dashboard to give you better visibility on your sourcing team's performance using Beamery, in order to drive better decision making around resource, identify and remove roadblocks along the vacancy pipeline, highlight top sourcers and help forecast for the future.

Update: Release Notes - January 12th, 2018

With this first release of 2018, we are happy to introduce two new features.

The first one helps Beamery customers to better manage their data, the Recruiter experience, and, crucially, compliance requirements. This feature is available for customers on the Enterprise Plan.

The second feature, requested by many customers, will make life easier for our recruiters, talent marketers, and sourcers by providing visibility of all active campaigns for a candidate for the first time. This feature is available to all customers of the Talent Marketing module.

Private Fields

Beamery’s Private Fields enables customers to use custom fields in a compliant, secure and scalable way.

In addition to the functionality of custom fields, Private fields allows customers to:

  1. Collect sensitive information from candidates in order to adhere to compliance regulations
  2. Protect this information from being exposed to users who should not have permission
  3. Reduce clutter by hiding custom fields that are not relevant to certain users


Beamery Admins can manage access to each custom fields based on their permission level.

For more information on how to use and configure your custom Fields, please refer to our help docs.

Active Campaigns in Profile

Customers using Campaigns can already add candidates to campaigns from the Full profile, Mini profile and the web extension. Previously, to check which active campaign(s) a candidate is in, they would need to check each campaign individually.

With the Active Campaigns in Profile feature, users can now view a list of active campaigns the candidate is in, remove them from the campaign and click through to edit the campaign, directly from the candidate's profile.







New Features

  • Private Fields

  • Active Campaigns in Profile

Bugfixes

  • Filters: Autocomplete for Organisations should be only returning results based on name searching, not on any other basis
