Bullhorn Novo Enhancements

Bullhorn Novo

  • New System Setting: We have introduced a new system setting: weekStartDay. The value in this setting changes how the date and date/time picker will load the first day of the week. This enables you to select the day of the week that you would like as the first day. This setting will default to Sunday, but can easily be customised.


  • Parent Appointments: Opening an Appointment from the Submission tab of a record with an associated Child appointment will now open the Parent appointment. This update makes creating and managing appointments with Parent or Child companies even easier. 
  • Emails to Rejected Candidates: You can now send emails to Candidates from the ‘Rejected’ section of the Submission Tab on records, enabling you to make the most of your candidate relationships even if the candidate was rejected from a particular role. 


  • Entity Names: When updating the status of a record using a workflow icon, the modal that loads will now display the entity name correctly. This update impacts users on a Private Label that have changed an Entity name as well as users on a non-English version of Bullhorn.
  • Country Names: The Country picker/field on records will now display Country names in their respective language for non-English users, ensuring further localisation of Bullhorn Novo. 

Product Update to Bullhorn S Release & Novo 

Bullhorn ATS

  • Emails from Bullhorn: We have resolved an issue where replies to emails that were sent from Bullhorn from certain Hotmail accounts were not accurately tracked on records in Bullhorn. Now, all email interactions should be successfully tracked in Bullhorn, providing you with insight into candidate and client communications.

Improvement to Bullhorn Onboarding

Bullhorn Onboarding

  • IP Address Privacy: For added privacy, the IP addresses displayed in the audit trail for Onboarding documents can now only be viewed by Administrators, Primary Contacts, and Secondary Contacts. This is to ensure that information remains private and secure during the onboarding process.
