Updates to Bullhorn ATS & CRM

Bullhorn ATS
  • Novo Tax Tab: Novo Tax Tab fields are now accessible in REST without needing First Party Access.
    • I.e. Any user can utilize this field, regardless of access type.
  • Candidate Search Filter: Conducting a candidate search by note action now correctly applies the note date added filter.
    • I.e. When you conduct a search for candidates that filters to include one note action and exclude another note action, the note date added filter will now apply to both.


Product Updates for Bullhorn VMS Sync

Bullhorn VMS Integration
  • Flex Mapping companyID Search Results: ATS IDs will now take priority on search results and be shown at the top. Sync will look up IDs not found rather than requiring a full mapping refresh
  • Maestro VMS Integration: The Maestro by Medical Solutions VMS integration is now available.


Enhancements to Bullhorn’s Pay & Bill Functionality

Bullhorn Pay & Bill
  • Prism Payroll Field Additions: The following Placement fields have been added to Canvas:
    • benefitGroup
    • employmentStartDate
    • payGroup
    • payrollEmployeeType
    • positionCode
    • payrollSyncStatus
Middle Office
  • Discounts and Earn Codes: A new flag has been added to allow Agencies to keep certain Earn Codes from being discounted. Non-Discountable earn codes will not need to be specifically omitted from the Earn Code picker on Company Discounts since flagged Earn Codes  will not be included  in discount calculations during invoice creation. Flagged Earn Codes will not have discounts added during billing sync.

An issue item will be created if there is an Earn Code that is marked as isDiscountable=False and the Discount made its way to the bill master transaction.

  • General Ledger Fields Added to Billable Charge and Payable Charge View Layout: The following fields have been added to view layout:
    • generalLedgeServiceCodeID
    • generalLedgerSegment1ID
    • generalLedgerSegment2ID
    • generalLedgerSegment3ID
    • generalLedgerSegment4ID
    • generalLedgerSegment5ID

With this enhancement, an administrator can now add these fields to the Billable charge list, the Billable charge header, and the Payable charge list.

  • Invoice Statement Email Fields: Users are now able to specify the email recipients (Email To, Email CC, Email BCC) on the Invoice Statement interface for Invoices with delivery method of Email. The data will be populated initially based on the associated Billing Profile.
  • Invoice Terms Template: Admins can now define Invoice Term Templates through a new menu item. The Templates that are configured can be selected by properly entitled users to populate values on Invoice Terms based on the template values.
  • Support for Tax on Margin: The ability for taxes to be calculated off a margin of the billable amount rather than the total billable amount is now supported.
  • Location Assignment for Transactions Added to Existing Charges: Transactions newly added to existing billable charges will now correctly have a location automatically assigned.
