  1. Multiple "TO" Recipients in Email

    Currently, sending an email is to one "To" recipient. Any other recipients are treated as "bcc". There is a daily need to be able to send to one or more recipients as well as adding "cc" recipients

    • Make CELL # field the Default when Auto-Parsing Resumes

      Right now, the HOME # field is the Default when Auto-Parsing Resumes.
      It is no longer 1965. When people post a resume with just 1 phone # - it is their CELL #. Can we adjust CATS so that is the default field for non-specified phone #s to parse into when creating a new CANDIDATE profile?

      • Multiple recruiters working on the same job order

        When job orders are "hot" we many of times need all hands on deck. This ranges from 2-3 recruiters working on the same job order. It would be extremely helpful if CATS allowed a job order to be assigned to multiple recruiters so that it shows up on my assigned jobs. Usually I have to select the other recruiters jobs and filter to see the client. Although, it doesn't help much since we have so many job orders with that same client.

        • Keep past scheduled events visible on candidate's record

          Keep scheduled events that have past, visible on the candidates record, so you can see a trail of all their interviews at a glance, instead of having to search an entire calendar.

          • Change Status/Notes

            When changing the status of multiple candidate records, it would be helpful to be able to add a note as well. Currently I am able to change the status from one activity to another but unable to give details in the notes section. It would be nice to get it done all at once instead of back tracking and having to enter the same note for multiple candidates.

            • REPORTING and DATA ACCESS: Download more than 1000 rows of data

              Allow data (ie: activity) to be downloaded for periods of time, with no row limit. Alternatively, allow certain data sets to be downloaded for at least a one month increment so automated report generation can be accomplished outside of CATS.

              • Partner with a Business Intelligence Platform.

                There are a whole host of organizations out there that provide business intelligence to recruiters. Specifically two of the more prominent ones are Insight Squared, and Cube19. Both of these companies partner with other recruiting specific CRM's to provide users with all kinds of business intelligence that we as small business owners would find very useful.

                • Link "Candidates" to "Companies" through the "Current Employer" tab to build a better directory

                  The "Current Employer" tab in Candidates, it's text only and doesn't link direct to "Companies". This is very beneficial to keep an organisational chart. Currently, I have to do a two-step resolve by creating them as a contact and then creating or finding their company to put them in. This would also be beneficial to see where people were previously.

                  • ZipRecruiter Easy Apply Link in Career Portal

                    The APPLY with Indeed button gives us resumes that are all jumbled and not formatted. ZipRecruiter has such better quality of candidates. Unfortunately, at this time, there is not an easy link yet so we have to receive the candidates in our emails and then upload them to the resume inbox. This is extremely time consuming and candidates can get lost in the hundreds of applicants we receive. If we could get an integration between Zip and CATS that would save us so much time and allow the candidates to feed directly into the Dashboard.

                    • Track possible phone numbers

                      When I'm hunting a candidate, I often get multiple phone numbers that "might" be right. I would love to be able to put them in a drop down for phone # field and when I call and find out it was a bad number I can gray it out or cross it out or somehow identify that it was NOT the right number. That way either myself or other recruiters who might be hunting that candidate don't waste time with the same #. The field can of course default to the correct # if it is known.

                      • Notes Expansion - icon

                        I take extensive notes during conversations, updates, etc.. Wondering if there is a possibility to have a feature that will expand / collapse the notes rather than go through several pages to find previous notes? Bullhorn had a '+' sign next to the notes and it only showed the first line so you had an idea what it was about. A thought.

                        • Do not call tab.

                          A tab that enables us to place someone into a "do not call list" for future reference. Also, a cross-check alert on the same resume, should it upload in the database again.

                          • Add date field drop down to "STATUS" section of JOB ORDERs on CANDIDATE page

                            Currently any "Status" entries DATE's are defaulted to the current date when updating CANDIDATE JOB ORDER STATUS's. However, there are times when I enter the updates at a later time, or need to make a change. The suggestion is to add a drop down calendar when you update a candidate status: default would still be the current date, but allow the date to be changed IF needed.

                                • Ability to have a pipeline pf candidates that are not linked to jobs.

                                  We have an ongoing static list of candidates we periodically reach out to. It would be nice to keep them organized in catsone under a pipeline category that is not linked to the job orders. It would also be nice to have a widget for this that shows up on the dashboard. Thanks!

                                  • send an email or notification to the Admin or Recruiter when a candidate updates their profile.

                                    Currently, there is no way to know when a candidate updates their information in CATS. An email notification would be great.

                                    • INDEED COVER LETTER Message CAN'T be saved in a field!!!

                                      Most of the online applicants are from Indeed and when they provide us a Cover Letter Message, the message stays at the application level without having a way to save it to the Candidate's field. CATS support believes that this is the best approach. See my correspondence and all the arguments below and cast your vote as you feel.

                                      **************************************

                                      The Indeed Application has a Cover Letter question answer that most of the applicant use it as a cover letter that the question implies and CATS DOESN"T save it to any field at all. I tried everything but it's out…

                                      • Profile photos: handling them elegantly and making them searchable

                                        We depend on our candidates uploading profile photos. It would be awesome if you could make these separate objects in the candidate profile, plus also make it possible to check if someone's missing a profile photo.

                                        • viewing different recruiter activities for one same Job order

                                          I have two recruiters working on the same Job Order and when it comes to reporting i can not see the activities carried out by the second recruiter ie only can see those of the Job order owner. It would be great if no matter who owns the JD i can see which of the recruiters is doing what and when. Thanks
