Updates to Bullhorn ATS & CRM

Bullhorn ATS


  • Russia Date/Time Preferences: Russian users now have the ability to set their preferred date and time format in User Preferences. The Date Format field has the following new option:
    • dd.MM.YYYY HH:mm (ru-RU) if the private label uses 24 hour format without AM and PM
    • dd.MM.YYYY HH:mm AM/PM (ru-RU) if the private label uses 12 hour format with AM and PM
  • Entity Record Counts Affecting Page Load: We have implemented a new “loading” animation to the related record count headers and allow the page to load before all record counts are returned. This should allow for faster page loads for entities with a large number of related records.
  • Selecting/Deselecting When Filtering/Sorting File Lists: We enhanced the record selection process on the Novo files tab so that when users select file records, the records will remain selected when paginating, filtering, and sorting. This will allow users to interact with these records and action on them across multiple pages and data sets. Please note that selecting records en masse and actioning on them is limited to up to 500 records.

S Release

  • Advanced Note Search: When performing a search using the “Does NOT Have” parameter, the search will correctly filter records that do not have the specified criteria.
  • Multiple Search Criteria Containing a Slash: Searching on a Contact list will now succeed when multiple search criteria is selected, and one of the search values contains a slash “/”.
  • Creating Merge PDF With .doc and .docx files: Customers using the Merge PDF feature can now successfully incorporate .docx and .doc files within the merged PDF
  • Logging Into Bullhorn Mobile via the Android App: Users are now able to login to the Bullhorn Mobile App on the Android OS.
