Career Center Enhancements

Easy Apply Workflow

This update introduces an alternate application workflow for the Career Center called "Easy Apply Workflow." Leveraging this workflow will simplify the candidate application process, while reducing candidate drop-offs. This new workflow consists of (1) the registration page, (2) a shorter candidate information page, and (3) the review and submit (which can now be hidden). The other standard pages can easily be enabled if desired. As with the standard workflow, customers can easily add both standard and custom fields to the application.

Recruit Enhancements

Taleo Candidate Search Setting

This update introduces a new role-level setting that determines whether or not users can see requisitions for which they are not an owner as part of the candidate profile when using Taleo Candidate Search.  When viewing a candidate after searching, the Requisitions table displays all requisitions to which the candidate is associated. This new setting results in a Requisitions table which displays only those requisitions for which the current user is an owner but the new setting allows you to change this to see all requisitions for your hiring mangers and recruiters if desired.

Platform Enhancements

New W-4 Form

The default W-4 form now contains the 2021 version published by the IRS. Any onboarding activity templates referencing this default W-4 form automatically include the new form. Therefore, and new activities referencing this form, as well as in progress activities, will automatically display the updated form. Completed activities are not affected.

NetSuite Integration Enhancements

The NetSuite integration now supports the synching of the Employment Type field and the education information between Taleo Business Edition and NetSuite.

Please refer to the NetSuite Integration guide for more details.
