Update: Beamery 3.0: Rolling out soon

At Beamery, we are continuously developing new solutions and releasing them on an almost weekly basis. The time has therefore come to introduce a new, more intuitive navigation as the flagship element to our upcoming Beamery 3.0 release. You’ll enjoy a faster application experience and notice that there’s now more space for us to grow.

How will 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 will 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.

Update: Release Notes - November 1st, 2017

With this release, we have made 2 changes requested by many users, that greatly improve the usability of Beamery:

1. We have added a new view of the contacts in a pool, broken down based on the status of the candidates.

2. We are now saving the changes each user makes to the columns that are visible in the All Contacts section of the app.

Pool Navigation

You can now see the status of candidates for the talent pool in a similar manner to vacancies.

When opening the contact view of a pool, you will now have a bar displaying at the top showing how many candidates you have in the pool, for each candidate status. By selecting one of the statuses, the contact list will be filtered to display only the candidates with this particular status.

This gives recruiters and sourcers a better understanding of the strength of their talent pools and helps them identify what activities to prioritize.

Re-ordering columns in the "All Contacts" view

The contact fields that are important to an organisation will vary for each organisation, which is why Beamery offers the ability to create custom fields. We also allow users to re-order columns in the "All Contacts" grid to match their requirements.

However, having taken feedback onboard, we recognised that this reordering was cumbersome when there are lots of fields in a grid, and changes were not saved between sessions.

New Functionality

Following our update, users can continue to edit their views. Moving forward though, these changes are saved and re-applied the next time the user logs in.
