Updates to Bullhorn ATS & CRM

Bullhorn ATS


  • Erase-Related Enhancement (Data Mirror 8): When a Contact, Candidate, or Lead is erased from Bullhorn for GDPR purposes, the record of their existence will also be removed from Data Mirror.
    • I.e., Data Mirror 8 blanks out the appropriate fields tied to an anonymized record upon replication from Bullhorn.
  • Erase-Related Enhancement: When a Candidate is erased from Bullhorn for GDPR purposes, the record of their existence will also be removed from Mass Mailing history.*
    • I.e., An erased candidate’s email will not show up as a recipient of previous Mass Mailings they received.

       * Note: this enhancement affects both S Release and Novo.


  • costCenter Value Transfer (Job Order > Placement): The value from the ‘costCenter’ field now transfers directly from the Job Order record to the Placement record.
    • I.e., If the costCenter value in a job order was listed as Professional Staffing – Northeast, the same value will be brought over to the costCenter field of the placement record made from this job.

Product Updates for Bullhorn VMS Sync

Bullhorn VMS Integration

VMS Sync

  • ARMI Integration: A new email-only integration has been added for the ARMI VMS. 
  • GrapeTree updated to Contingent Talent Management VMS: All existing “GrapeTree” VMS integrations have been updated to “Contingent Talent Management” as the more universal name for the VMS technology. There is now more support for other buyers in the CTM system.

Enhancements to Bullhorn’s Pay & Bill Functionality

Bullhorn Pay & Bill

Middle Office

  • Placement Rate Card Support for Not Required, Pay Only, or Bill Only Rates: The placement rate card interface now allows users to enter pay rate only,  bill rate only, or no rates at all, depending on the associated earn code field selections. This system behavior is based on the following earn code fields:
    • “Pay/Bill Options” which drives if the user should enter Pay Rate, Bill Rate, or both on the rate card.
    • “Are rates required?” which drives if the user should enter a rate for that earn code on the rate card.

The rate card user interface provides visual indicators on what rate fields are required and what rates should be entered.

  • Monthly Billing Tables: Monthly Billing Tables are now available in Data Mirror 8. The following tables are included: 
      • PayBillCycle
      • Calendar
      • CalendarInstance
      • CalendarFrequencyLookup
    • Existing tables that were updated to include fields from Monthly Billing Tables include:
      • InvoiceTermsVersion – payBillCycle
      • BillMaster – isEligible, payBillCycle and calendarInstance
      • BillableCharge – payBillCycle and calendarInstance
