Data Exports (Backups) - UPDATED

CHANGED – Requesting and downloading Data Exports

To better serve growing data storage and retention needs, we are expanding Crelate’s capabilities by making fundamental changes in how we handle Organization Backups and Exports. With the increased demand and size of backups, we have altered the way we queue, bundle, and distribute backups initiated through Crelate.

Updated – Custom Fields

CHANGED – Managing Custom Fields

The management of Custom Fields has moved for all Core Records from the various “Customize Fields” or “Customize Form” dialogs to a new Custom Fields area within each Core Record in Settings.

The concept of Logical Names has been introduced to make interfacing with these Custom Fields easier. This gives you the ability to specify API keyed names which you can use instead of the previous CustomFieldX approach.

CHANGED – Creating and Deleting Custom Fields

Creating and Deleting Custom Fields is now handled via the Custom Fields
area on Core Records.

Crelate API v3 - UPDATED

NEW – Support for Data Exports (Backups)

With the overall changes made to Data Exports (Backups), we have updated API v3 to include support for various Backup functionality. These newly added endpoints have been created with the new partitioned structure in mind and should be used going forward to interact with Data Exports programmatically.

CHANGED – New Custom Field support

To coincide with the overall changes made to Custom Fields, we are making interacting with Custom Fields easier via the API and have introduced a “CustomFields” property bag. This can be found on various endpoints for Entities that support Custom Fields. This property bag is keyed off the newly introduced Logical Name concept, which can be configured in the new Custom Fields areas of Core Records.

IMPROVED – General Stability Improvements

We have made several improvements to general API v3 stability by addressing issues raised by our customers and partners. This includes exposing more fields, improving documentation, addressing defects, and adding more entity support (e.g., Job Types).

NEW – Employee Id on Users

IMPROVED – New Employee Id field on Users

An EmployeeId field has been added to Users in Crelate. This field can be set on both new and existing Users and optiona. However, it must be unique between users in your organization. This EmployeeId can be used during bulk import as a distinguishing field for matching cell values to users in your Crelate instance. A common use case for this field is to store an employee/payroll Id that can be used to relate the Crelate user record to a record in an external timekeeping/payroll system.

NEW! CRELATE HIRE

September 2021

Interview Loops

Simplify setting up interviews when you’re ready to move a candidate to an interview loop! Recruiters can create reusable templates for interview loops tailored to similar jobs which can be configured to have single or multiple interview sessions. These templates can also support one or more interviewers assigned to each individual session within the loop.

To support the interviewer who may or may not have time to review a candidate prior to joining a meeting, this feature also can include notes for multiple audiences — meaning the last-minute notes they might need can be included in the interview record without the risk of exposing to the candidate directly. Other common use cases for notes include conference call details, links to company websites for the candidate, and specific target questions for the interviewer to focus on.

NEW! CRELATE HIRE

Scorecards

Scorecards give recruiters the ability to use a set of questions from the Interview Question Bank to assign to interviewers who will use them for the interview itself. These can be created as reusable templates to speed up the scoring process. Scorecards provide the ability to compare multiple candidates side by side based on various categories to surface important details needed for the final determination to move forward with hiring.

COMING 2023 & BEYOND

Omni vNext

Omni vNext

In 2022, we launched the first iteration of our middle and back-office software offerings. Customer response has been highly positive and we are already iterating based on early adopter feedback. Specifically, look for the team to offer:

Timecard import

Ability to import timecards using a CSV file to facilitate mass data importation, particularly for customers using VMS software.

Overtime and Pay Calculation rules

Expand and enhance our handling of numerous payment scenarios. This enables users to define rules for interpreting time. The most notable aspect of this is that we will be able to calculate overtime. Users will also be able to configure pay plans that take advantage of holiday calendars, set pay and time rates, and have the system interpret time based on any criteria they configure for a company, opportunity, or employee.

Next Level Fit and Finish

We take great pride in the product that we build. Pride of ownership is just one of the reasons we have a credit screen in our About Box where every member of our team gets to put their name and say, “I built this.” We’re expanding our investment in responding to community Feedback items that align with fit and finish—fixing little things that make the product more enjoyable.

Recruitment Project Management 

Track recruiting activities to fill positions within a timeframe. The recruiting team can prioritize and estimate the work needed to fill openings. They can update the burndown matrix as they advance against this estimate. Maintain their hiring targets and alter their recruitment strategy if they behind. Helps improve the recruiting process by revealing the success of different recruitment methods.

Search Action for Companies

This will introduce additional functionality to the company search area From Search, and gives options when using search for Companies or Jobs. This should work the same as find, having the ability to add companies or jobs to lists, add companies to ‘Employment Search’, etc…

Split Calculations

Assign percentages and fixed values for split agreements and payouts.

Relationships

Highlight and leverage contact connections to enhance and maintain relationships.

On the horizon

And we’re not done yet. We remain committed to our values of continuous self-improvement, transparency, and flexibility. And, most importantly, we continue to listen to you, our customers, as we plan future releases, features and product updates.
