New Features

    1. Re-Design of Search Functions and Availability

There are some adjustments for candidate search.

    • Option to upload text or enter search criteria directly

Previously, to start the search a search text always had to be entered or a file uploaded before the various search criteria could be edited.

This is no longer necessary.

From now on it is possible to either upload and extract a text and then adjust the extracted search criteria or to select specific search criteria directly.

In the new version, the field for uploading a text is “collapsed” by default. If necessary, the input can be „expanded“, and a text can be entered or uploaded.

If this is not desired, search criteria can be selected directly.

As before, you can choose from:

  • Comptencies – the differentiation between „BSU” and “all” does not apply anymore. Now “all” will be used as the basis, which refers to the whole ontology.
  • languages
  • certificates

The user now has the option of uploading a file (.docx or .pdf), entering text manually or directly selecting certain search criteria.

    • New Search Criteria „Availability“

In the new Search Toolbar to select a time frame for availability.

    1. Filter Functions for Search Results

In order to refine the search results, the following filter options have been implemented:

  • Department – search field and drop-down list
  • Country – search field and drop-down list
  • City – search field and drop-down list
  • Seniority – search field and drop-down list

The content for the sub-filters is set according to the available data in the search results.

Suggest Job Roles

In the new version it is possible to suggest missing roles in the project history, analog to missing competencies or customers.

If the desired job role is not available, the missing role can be suggested using the „Suggest“ button. A description and a link for further information can be added.

Figure 8: suggest new Job Role

If the new job role was suggested, the suggestion is listed in the personal suggestion list under „Job roles“.

Figure 9: suggested Job Role in personal suggestion list

The new proposal is also listed in the data curation and can be edited in the context of data curation in the same way as the competencies.

It is possible to add the new job role or to reject it if a suitable job role already exists.

Upload Documents for Certificates

A corresponding document can be uploaded for each certificate. Possible formats are pdf files or images in jpeg or png format.

If a second file is uploaded to a certificate, the first will be overwritten. Currently, only one document can be saved per certificate.

The file can be specifically selected or uploaded for the certificate using drag & drop in the edit window.

Furthermore, the issuing institute, the date of issue and, if applicable, a valid-to date can also be specified for each certificate.

Figure 11: Upload File for Certificate

The uploaded files can be downloaded again through the link added to the certificate.

The uploaded files can also be deleted again. This can be also done in the edit window for certificates.

Improvements and Bugfixes

Improvement Ranking Service

For details check <<< Link für Doku Ranking Service >>>

Listing 50 Entries in Candidate Search

Until now only the best 20 profiles were listed in the candidate search. The count of profiles was increased to 50.

Deactivate Email Dispatch in Workflow in Candidate Search

In the current version the mail dispatch when updating the status of a profile in the search results creates problems. So the functionality is deactivated for now until the new version of the workflow is implemented.

Edit “Industrial Skills” – add Aliases

In the ontology there are so called “industrial competencies” which are used for industrial sectors. With the new version aliases can be added to this type of competencies.

Adjust Labels in the German Screen for Preferences

In the German version of the screen “Preferences” the English terms “Like” and “Dislike” are used.
