Updates to Bullhorn ATS & CRM

Bullhorn ATS


  • Added Support for Field Interactions: We now support field interactions on the Add & Edit Note forms and the ‘Message’ field on the ‘Compose Message’ page, allowing users to configure custom rules when adding notes or sending emails from within Bullhorn.
  • Mass Mail Opt-Outs: We’ve resolved an issue where Mass Mail recipients would be opted out without unsubscribing. Recipients will only be unsubscribed if they perform the unsubscribe action.
  • “Reason for Cancelling” Onboarding Dropdown: We have updated the “Reason for Cancelling” field to utilize a drop-down with the options coming from the system settings. If there are no values in the system setting, it will default to a free type text field.


  • New Candidate Tax Info Tab: We have built a new tax tab* that includes federal, state, and local tax forms and can support multiple Tax Forms per record. These forms can be custom configured with page & field interactions and are exposed in the REST APIs to support payroll integrations**.
    • *Note: The Novo Tax Info Tab is separate from the existing tax info tab in S Release. Clients currently using the existing tax info tab may need to migrate their tax data to the new tab.
    • **Note: This page is not yet available for Onboarding365 or the Prism integrations.
