Releases tagged: recipes

Our Engineering teams have been busy last month! On top of releasing over 20 improvements, we have released new features both in our CRM and Talent Marketing products

CRM

  • Export Candidate Profile as PDF: export the candidate's profile as a PDF file for easy sharing with external colleagues
  • New compliance-related automation: two new actions in Recipes: 'Anonymize' and 'Delete'

Talent Marketing

  • Page Block Customization: tailor the layout of pages by moving, removing and cloning blocks
  • Contact Limits for Campaigns and Bulk Actions: limit the number of contacts that can be added to a campaign, or included as part of a bulk action
  • Access to Pages and Forms: Standard users can now create and edit pages, but only admins can publish

Integrations

  • Greenhouse 2-way anonymization: anonymize contacts in both Beamery and Greenhouse automatically
  • Jobvite improvements

Export Candidate Profile as PDF

We have introduced a new functionality that allows users to create a PDF file from a candidate profile, download it onto their computer, and share it thereafter with external colleagues such as hiring managers.

The functionality is available through the standard action menu on the profile.

New compliance-related automation

We have introduced two new actions in Recipes: 'Anonymize' and 'Delete'. With these actions, Admins and Super Admins can easily automate the maintenance of a clean and compliant database. For example, in conjunction with the new scheduled trigger that checks the database at regular time intervals, enterprise customers can set up a recipe to routinely bulk delete disengaged contacts that they have not heard from for a predefined period of time. Alternatively, to ensure the disengaged contact isn't accidentally added back into the database after being removed (particularly if they have also opted out), customers can choose to automatically Anonymize the contact.

Page Block Customization

Enterprise customers can tailor the layout of pages by moving, removing and cloning blocks. The new options replace the 'Edit' button on the top right of each block.

Now you can:

  • Change the position of the block by selecting the up or down arrows
  • Have multiple versions of the same block by selecting the clone icon (signified by the two squares)
  • Delete additional blocks you don't need by selecting the cross icon, until you have one of each block left
  • Hide and un-hide blocks by selecting the eye icon (which is now grouped here with other block options instead of within the block editor, so it's easier to find. If you're not an Enterprise customer, the Edit button will be replaced by the hide/un-hide button.)

Contact Limits for Campaigns and Bulk Actions

With a great number of contacts in your database comes great responsibility. To prevent accidental messages or updates to contacts en masse, customers can request a limit on the number of contacts that can be added to a campaign, or included as part of a bulk action, at any one time. These limits can be set by your Customer Success Manager. 

If users exceed the number of contacts allowed, we will notify them in app (as shown below) and prevent them from sending the campaign or carrying out the bulk action, until they reduce the number of contacts selected.

Within the filters panel in the campaign editor:


When attempting to carry out a bulk action from the People grid:


Standard User Access to Page and Forms

Standard users are now able to create and edit pages and forms. This means Admins can focus on more strategic initiatives as they share the task of setting up pages and forms with other team members. Only Admins and Super Admins will continue to have the ability to publish, ensuring they have the opportunity to review and sign off on content before the page or form goes live. 

Greenhouse 2-way Anonymization

Ability to anonymize contacts in both Beamery and Greenhouse automatically. 

When contacts are anonymized in Beamery, the same contacts are anonymized in Greenhouse. When contacts are anonymized in Greenhouse, contacts are anonymized in Beamery. 

Requirements: 

  • Permission to anonymize contacts in Greenhouse
  • Set up Greenhouse Webhook for 'Candidates anonymized' 

 Additional Notes: Beamery blocks anonymized contacts from being re-added, while Greenhouse does not, allowing candidates to re-apply.

Jobvite Improvements

    • Two-way synchromization for Primary Title and Company for Contacts and Candidates
    • Source now being synced for candidates from Jobvite to Beamery
    • Mapping of the Vacancy Owner between Beamery and Jobvite
    • Fixed and issue where contacts were not syncing to Greenhouse when name has special characters

New Features

  • New permissions

  • Campaign bulk action limits

  • Bulk action limits

  • PDF Export

  • Compliance Automation Actions

  • Greenhouse 2-way anonymization

Updates

  • Ability to invite super admins on companies enabled via SSO

  • Ordering Social Links now possible

  • New 'No Owner' filter option for vacancies

  • Assigning a Task to a User is now reflected in the task Card produced

  • If you change the csv import file, the upload button is no longer greyed out

  • Restricted Users can no longer create tasks for other users

  • Users are now warned when trying to Add an Attachment larger than 10MB

  • Location no longer incorrectly appears editable for Restricted Users when it should not be

Update: Beamery Comply: Extension and Automation updates

Following the Beamery Comply 'Consent Management' and 'Manual Anonymization' releases, we have been busy making enhancements enable customers to achieve and maintain a state of compliance more efficiently, by:

  • Integrating Consent Management and Anonymization into the Extension
  • Introducing Beamery Comply Automation

Integrating Consent Management and Anonymization into the Extension

Requesting consent outside of Beamery:

Now users can generate the consent URL for contacts in Beamery directly from the Extension, allowing users to more easily share the consent link outside of direct messages or campaigns, e.g. via LinkedIn InMail. We recommend using a link shortener before sharing the URL to provide a better contact experience.

Protecting against sourcing Anonymized contacts:

Anonymized contacts will be flagged and blocked from being sourced into your CRM. 


Introducing Beamery Comply Automation 

We have upgraded Recipes so users can automate compliance-related workflows on a regular basis. In addition, users will benefit from additional Recipe filters that also complement GDPR Automation to better target the right candidates with automated actions. There are three key updates to Recipes:

  1. Scheduled Triggers: A new type of recipe trigger which will run periodic database checks (instead of only triggering a recipe at the time a contact's record is updated)
  2. New filters: Enables users to filter contacts by:
    • When contacts were created, were last heard from, when an email is added to their profile, and which pools the contacts are NOT part of, to accurately segment and then tailor actions
    • Archived contacts, and contacts marked as ‘Do not contact’; this allows for an automatic database cleanse of contacts who should not be contacted
  3. GDPR Automation: Users can trigger actions based on when a contact opts in or out, filter contacts by their opt in status and filter contacts according to how long it has been since time consent was provided

Scheduled Triggers

Run checks on the database of contacts at regular intervals of every 1, 6, 12 or 24 hours, for filters selected. For example, this enables customers to automate the following:

  • Workflows based on previous updates to contacts (while standard triggers are future-facing)
  • Archive contacts without consent information after a certain period of time
  • Purge the database of archived, disengaged contacts after a certain period of time
  • Add contacts to a campaign as soon as the sourced contact’s email is added
  • Send a re-opt campaign when consent is about to lapse for contacts

New Filters

The following filters have been added into recipes as part of this release, which work well with compliance workflows:

  • Date created
  • Archived
  • Marked as ‘Do not contact’
  • Last heard from
  • Doesn’t belong to pool
  • Primary Email


GDPR Automation


Triggers:

Trigger actions depending on whether the candidate has opted in or out. For example, you can automatically send a confirmation email to the candidate or archive them using the consent trigger.

Filters: 

Filter contacts by the Consent field and the Last Consented field. For example, to run regular purges of contacts who have opted out and have been archived (used in conjunction with the scheduled trigger), or to send 're-opt in' campaigns when the candidate’s consent is about to lapse.

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.

Update: Release Notes - February 22nd, 2018

We’ve released two features that bring increased functionality and control in Beamery.

  • You can now set a specific name for each verified email, so your colleagues can continue conversations with candidates if you’re tied up or away, personalised with their name and email address.
  • Recipes are a powerful way to automate workflows. With this update, you can automatically add global tags to contacts as an action.

Email From Name

To send an email campaign from Beamery, you need to add an email address into your Settings and you can add multiple email addresses. Previously, when sending a campaign, your name would always appear as the person who sent it (in the recipient’s inbox), no matter which email address you selected.

We realised this was inflexible. So with our latest update, you can now select a different name for each email you add into Settings. You’ll now see a new Email From Name’ field next to each Verified Email’ (as per the image below). It even works without email whitelabelling.

For example:

  • EMAIL FROM NAME: 'Beamery Careers' | VERIFIED EMAIL: careers@beamery.com*
  • *campaigns sent from careers@beamery.com will appear in the recipient's inbox as from 'Beamery Careers' and not your name


Global Tags as Action in Recipes

Global tags allow you to adopt consistent tagging across candidates in your database. When you create recipes, you can now easily add tags by selecting Global Tags from the dropdown in Action, and choosing the global tag you wish to use.

For example:

  • Trigger: A graduate has answered that they’re interested in the Dev Ops team
  • Action: Add the tag Dev Ops Engineer’


New Features

  • Global Tags as Action in Recipes

Updates

  • Email From Name

Romuald Restout January 15th, 2018

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

Update: Release Notes - October 18th, 2017

We are very excited with this new release that fixes a few bugs, enhances our Forms capabilities, significantly enhance what you can automate in the candidate journey, and expands our ecosystem by integrating with another ATS.

Improvements to Pages and Forms

Linking Questions to Custom Fields

Beamery Forms are a powerful tool to capture all the information you need about a candidate. While this information was very useful for automatically processing candidates based on their answer, it was difficult to manage candidates based on these answers.
With this release, we can now link those questions -and their answers- to custom fields. This will allow users to display those columns in the contact lists, and filter on candidate answers.

Use Google as Social Sign-up

Signing-up on a Beamery Form has always been an easy process, by allowing candidates to log in with their social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, GitHub).

With this release, we are making this process accessible to an even broader audience, by adding the ability to sign-up using the candidate's Google account.

Increased Automation

In this release, you are now able to automate more than before, and in more precise ways.

Additional Recipe Triggers

There are now more ways you can now trigger a recipe:

- if a candidate is added to a particular vacancy (or any vacancy)
- if a candidate is added to a particular pool (or any pool)
- if the stage of a candidate changes

These new triggers allow you to automate parts of the journey that remained manual until now.

For more details, you can access the help docs

Additional Recipe Filters

There are now more ways you can filter within vacancies:

- if a candidate belongs to a pool
- if a candidate belongs to a vacancy
- based on some custom fields

These new filters allow to be more sophisticated in the journeys you build for candidates, and create different paths based on relevant candidate characteristics.

For more details, you can access the help docs.

Campaign Setup Improvement

Send Test Email

The ability to send a test email when designing campaigns has been improved. You can now send a test email before having selected a list of candidates.

You can also choose who is the recipient of the test email. This allows better collaboration between departments when you want team members to provide feedback on an email.

Note from Beamery Team:

Your feedback and ideas is extremely important to us and has driven these recent updates - we would love to hear your thoughts on these new features and improvements. If you have any other ideas on features you would like to see improved or implemented, or would like to set up a time to speak with our product team to ask about our upcoming roadmap, please let us know by replying to this message!

Best,

Beamery Team
