Enhancement

The Resume Inbox Upgrade

Taking our existing Resume Inbox feature a notch higher, we have now incorporated a Parsing Mode functionality that lets you control the accuracy and success rate of your email parsing results. Divided across Lenient, Moderate and Strict -- each Parsing Mode has a predefined set of candidate record field values that, when activated, the parser will look for in the content that's being parsed.

Consider this use case where you're for a digital marketer and 50 candidates email their resumes to your inbox -- you would need a quick way of adding these candidate profiles as records in your database. This is where the lenient parsing mode comes in. In this mode, only the resume content and the candidate's first/last name. The records added have just the candidate's name and resume attached. Now, the recruiter can use the formatted resume feature and quickly generate a branded version of the candidate's original resume. However, if you just have two resumes for the same, switch the parsing mode to strict will add more detailed/information rich candidate records. The moderate mode offers a middle ground between these two extremes. Learn more.

Presenting Zoho Recruit’s Reporting Hierarchy Feature

Set up your organization's hierarchy structure based on the roles that your employees play in it and assign reporting managers to users for efficient record accessibility. In this hierarchy structure, a user is assigned a reporting manager who is entitled to view or access the user's data. Only members of the organization with equal or greater roles than the user can be made as their reporting managers. Also, you can choose if the non-reporting members of your organization are managed by any superior at a higher role or by the Super admin and Admin. This structure ensures controlled access of information within the organization and also ascertains that a user has only one reporting manager. Learn more.
