Minor but Helpful Enhancements:

  • Job Analyzer: When a user is creating a requisition in SuccessFactors Recruiting, the Job Analyzer provides insights on the effectiveness of the content of the requisition including data analysis on the effectiveness of the job description including whether the job description will introduce gender biases as well as insights of external aggregated open web data through smartsearch APIs.
  • Eliminating Enforced “.zip”-file Attachments in Recruiting Emails: Nowadays, “.zip” file format is getting less popular, especially with mobile devices. Increasing email attachment size limits allow for the attachments, when these are text documents or images to be dine in the original format.  Included in the enhancement in SuccessFactors Recruiting Management are Forward to Colleague and Recruiting Email Templates.  
  • Home Page v3 – Nudge feature for Job Requisition: Hiring Managers and Recruiters can nudge users on whom an approval is pending for a Job Requisition in Home Page V3.
  • Passing Consent Fields to RMK with Candidate Account Simplification (CAS): Hiring Managers and Recruiters can nudge users on whom an approval is pending for a Job Requisition in Home Page V3.
