With a great new navigation comes great responsibility: keeping it great and even making it better!
With this release:
1. we continue to improve your user experience and the navigation, by putting the information you need where you need it, and making it easier to access functionalities.
2. We are also further improving the experience by making it easier to find contacts in the people list through improved filter functionality
3. Finally, we make it easier for you to see information that is relevant to you by landing on contacts that have been assigned to you, instead of seeing a long list of all contacts.
First, when accessing the "People" module, you now land on your contacts, i.e. contacts that are assigned to you, rather than landing on the list of all candidates.
Then, for each module of the Beamery solution, we have:
The table and screenshots below indicates what has been added, and where.
You can now filter companies and titles based on a partial match ("contains"). For instance, filtering on "beam" would return all companies that contain the string "beam" in their name.
We will soon be releasing to beta customers a new Sourcing dashboard - the Team Leaderboard. It provides visibility on your sourcing team's performance across vacancies assigned to them, including stage-to-stage conversions, candidates added to each stage, and trends over time. View metrics at both team and team-member level, to drive better decision-making around resources, remove roadblocks, highlight top sourcers and help forecast for the future.
Navigation improvements: adding counters and shortcuts to reports in all modules
Sort Vacancies by 'Vacancy Date Added'
Partial Match ("contains") on Company and Title in Filters
Navigation improvements: landing on Contacts assigned to me, instead of all contacts
Closing and Reopening the Filter panel in "all contacts" after creating a 'empty' filter for a custom text field returns as a 'is not' filter
All Contacts : Custom Dropdown field filters doesn't handle 'is not' correctly
A few Quick Search related bugs

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
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.
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.
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.
Custom Footers in Pages and Forms
Location field now available in full profile
"Vacancy link" in Mini Profile doesn't work when MP is opened on Vacancy page
Filters clear when you hide filter panel
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.
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.
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.
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.
