Updates to Bullhorn ATS & CRM

Bullhorn ATS

  • Custom objects update: We are excited to share that we have made a highly requested custom objects update! Customers with more than ten custom objects can now search for all of their custom objects on the “Candidate, Contact, and Company” list. 
  • Template picker updates: The template filter for “Notes” and “Emails” has been updated to load the most recently modified 200 templates without requiring the user to search. The results are shown in alphabetical order. This is a more natural way of finding templates, by removing the step to find recent templates. This update is intended to increase efficiency by saving you time.  

Bullhorn Automation product updates

  • Lead entity support: We have released support for the Bullhorn ATS Lead entity. This allows our customers to easily cultivate lead engagement through automation that is crucial for business development. The ability to build and deploy Lead engagement campaigns as well as data hygiene projects through automations, clients are able to qualify leads faster while maintaining an effective database and gain more confidence in their sales and recruitment efforts.

Updates to Bullhorn Time + Expense

  • Rapid time entry performance improvement: We made a performance enhancement for customers with a large number of placements. The placements list will now load faster when initially accessing the time entry screen.

Updates to Bullhorn Time & Labor

  • Time & Labor engine enhancements: This month, there are several Time and Labor engine enhancements.
    • Holiday hours will now consistently be displayed as Holiday hours after time evaluation, rather than occasionally showing as Regular hours.
    • Shifts (such as “second shift” or “weekend shift”) can now be priced according to an agency’s needs and customer contracts by mapping shifts to specific earn code groups in the Time & Labor engine. 

Updates to Bullhorn Onboarding solutions

Bullhorn Onboarding

Onboarding Talent Edition

  • State tax form updates: We have made updates to several state tax forms.
    • Wisconsin Tax Forms (WT-4 and W-221) have been updated for 2024. There are only PDF changes, not webform. 
    • All fields on the new 2024 Indiana Tax Form (WH-4) will sync to Bullhorn ATS as part of the Onboarding 365 flowback integration.


  • I-9 resolved issues: We have resolved several issues with Form I-9.
    • Section 1 of the 2023 version of the Form I-9 will now be the only section of the I-9 that can be assigned in workflows, preventing the assignment of Section 2 and Supplement B as individual forms.
    • The link sent to authorized representatives for the I-9 will now be functional even after the I-9 has been accessed, providing a smooth restart process for authorized representatives that don’t have regular user access to OTE.
    • I-9 Corrections for Section 2 will now stay in “Waiting” status until signed, streamlining the process for a smoother user experience.
