It seems we had a problem processing some job applications last week due to a bottleneck in sending emails. The applications have not been lost, so we’re currently working through the backlog to re-process them in batches.
This has not affected all applications, but unfortunately does mean some clients may receive duplicate applications (although they will not be recorded twice in the stats or reports) when we re-process them
The issue was resolved rapidly as soon as we were aware of it, so hope you can bear with us while the backlog is processed.
As part of our plan to bring all our login processing into one place (job posting, CV database, candidate etc) and make everything more secure, we’re rolling out a new registration and processing system.
Initially users shouldn’t “feel a thing”, as this will be changes behind the scenes. This should be complete mid November. if anyone does experience any login problems, simply email me and I’ll sort it out!
The next stage is to import client users and merge CVDB accounts with job Posting Accounts. This will mean that each user will have a unique email and password combination, and it will give a user access to both systems (where contracts allow).
Once this is complete we will be updating all our “registration” pages.
If anyone has any problems just email firstname.lastname@example.org
You may have noticed, we’ve updated the email you get when a candidate applies for a job. This is part of an ongoing upgrade to bring all our emails into a new template and structure, and so we’ve been rolling this out over the last few weeks. This brought to light an issue that truncated cover letters on the application email, but this has now been resolved.
We updated some code in the search URLs this morning to pave the way for search improvements, but unfortunately it caused a problem with campaign links that had multiple campaignIDs, such as some banners. It was returning improper results. We’re working on this now, and should have a fix shortly.
If you own internal systems keep you informed about job expiries on PharmiWeb.com, we can now switch off the expiry notification emails.
This means you’ll not receive the expiry emails.
Let me know if that’s of use to you and I can change the settings of your account.
If you posts jobs to PharmiWeb.com with HTTP forwarding to your own website, rather than applying through an email, these “offsite clicks” are now displayed on your control panel.
Clearly we don’t know if the candidate completes the application process when they get to your site, all we know is that they’ve clicked and gone, but at least now you can see the stats.
Unfortunately we had a minor glitch for a few minutes while we did the update. Thanks to Dan and Zoe for pointing that out!
We’ve updated the CV viewer on the CV database, as some file formats were causing problems.
We’ve also fixed a bug that occurred when forwarding CVs to your email address. Thanks to Sean at Pharm-Olam for pointing that one out.
