  • API Documentation Update: Shifts: Documentation for all of the Shift Scheduling entities is now available on the public REST API documentation site.
  • Improved Phone Number Parsing in Sovren: We have taken advantage of Sovren v10’s updated phone parsing capabilities and will now be able to process and store multiple phone numbers from the candidate’s resume. The first phone number on a resume will be parsed as the Mobile phone. The second phone number, if one is provided, will be parsed into the Home Phone Number field.

S Release

  • Flowback Support for All Custom Objects: We have extended flowback support to all Custom Objects in Bullhorn.


  • Scheduler Email Opt-Out: A candidate can now unsubscribe from all email communications initiated via the scheduler by clicking the unsubscribe link found in those emails. This sets the candidate to be opted out from future Shift Scheduling emails.
  • Shift Position Credentials in “Find Matches”: When a shift position is added to a company and includes credentials, the “Find Matches” match criteria will now pull in the Credentials from the Job and the Shift Position.
