Jan is the co-founder & CEO of Candidately.


Our team is working hard to make candidate submissions faster and more collaborative, that's why I'm especially excited about today's new release. Introducing improved Bullhorn status mapping, enhanced recruiter notes, rate ranges + 30more updates!


Let's get right to it!

New Bullhorn features 🐂

Global candidate status mapping 🔄

It is now possible to use the global candidate status in Bullhorn to set a candidate inactive across all your lists.

For example:

  • A candidate is added to 3 lists in Candidate.ly. If the status in Bullhorn for this candidate switches to "Placed" (Or any other selected statuses), the candidate is set to "Inactive" on all 3 lists.
  • The candidate is added to a list in Candidate.ly but gets placed on another job that is not in Candidate.ly - the candidate would still go inactive as we are mapping to the global candidate status in Bullhorn.

Job status mapping ⚙️

This feature hooks into the job status in Bullhorn. Users can select whether to pause a list in Candidate.ly when the connected Bullhorn job is closed. It further simplifies the management of lists and ensures that closed jobs are no longer visible to clients.

Enhanced recruiter notes 📝

We've implemented an improved text editor that can be used when adding recruiter notes to your candidates. You can now format your text with the following options to make important information stand out, so your clients won't miss it:

  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Underline
  • Highlight
  • Bulleted list
  • Ordered list


Rate ranges 💸

When adding/activating a candidate on your lists, you can now switch the single value rate to a rate range for all of your candidates.
