December 2018 release notes


Candidate Discovery now generally available

Candidate Discovery has been loved by customers since it was announced in March 2018. We listened to customer feedback and added:

  • Spellcheck

  • Keyword highlighting in resume review

  • Auto-save your last search and filters

  • Ability to email or add to a job in bulk

We also made several user experience improvements and search ranking enhancements. With this, candidate discovery is now generally available to all Hire customers. Learn more.
