Software Updates Information (2018)

Update: Temps Availablity Now In Candidate Grid Dropdown List  (05/12/18)

Users now have the option to use Temps Availability in the Candidate grid dropdown list (DDL).

Two dates can now be selected and searched to determine if a candidate is available between these two dates.

If the dates are the same, it will count as one day. The availability tab will be shown, only when a user has Temps ordered.

Here’s how to use it:

  1. The user selects Temps Availability in the Candidate Grid DDL.
  2. The user then selects the start date and end date.
  3. Chameleon-i will look at the availability tab to see if the candidate is available.
  4. If the candidate is available, then this will be returned in the results.


Update: GDPR Opt Out Alert (02/12/18)

Following client feedback, Chameleon-i has made it clear to a user when a GDPR contact has opted out.

Once a contact has opted out, there are two ways for you to tell when looking at their contact information:

  1. In red capitals GDPR OPT OUT is displayed after their name.
  2. If a user attempts to contact them, a pop-up message will be displayed saying ‘Function not available, this candidate is GDPR Status: Opted Out’ and then the action will not be run.

This means that users do not have to go and find out if a user has opted out and will help save them time.


Update: New Google For Jobs Referral Counter (02/12/18)

Great news for users. We have now released a new counter on the vacancy record.


This counter is labelled GoogleJobs Referrals and will count the number of times that a user presses the ‘Load to [microsite]’ button or the ‘Load to Spotajob’ button on Google for Jobs.

Please note that if a user clicks the button repeatedly from the same IP address, this will not cause the counter to record each click.

Now users can benefit from a powerful suite of counters, all of which can be added into to your custom grids:

  • Spotajob views
  • Website [Microsite] Views
  • Google referrals

Update: Grids and Baskets alignment (27/11/18)

We are extremely excited to announce that Chameleon-i is aligning Grids and Baskets, in terms of functionality.

We are replacing words with icons so that you can become familiar with the easy-to-use buttons.

Custom views are now available in Baskets. You can build reports straight from your Custom Views – and create custom data exports to be downloaded into CSV files and spreadsheets.

This means that you are able to build reports quickly and easily – a fantastic option for recruiters who need information fast.

Within the Candidates section, users are now able to export data without the need to create Baskets.

Now, you are able to:
