November Update

Released 03/12/2021, this monthly update will contain the following developments:

Recruitment Portal Integration

We have released a new, free, recruitment portal for our customers called Penny. This will allow you to post jobs for advertisement within Databridge and receive email notifications with attached CV for people who apply. This new portal has only just been released and this is the first post about it so it has yet to receive any job postings but we look forward to you all changing that.

If you are interested in using this portal please do contact us to arrange the setup. It costs nothing and you can list your job posting online for free. Once we have a range of job posts listed we will market this new portal further to reach a wider audience.

ILR Grid Version

Under the ILR module there is now a split between viewing the Manager screen. You will be able to choose Forms (the current view with breakdown per item) and a new layout Grid. The grid view will display all data on screen in tabular format similar to the previous system whilst maintaining the newer functionality of the Forms layout.

As with the Forms layout, please do give us your honest feedback on how this screen works for you, if you prefer this to the Forms layout or not, ease of use compared to Forms layout etc. This will help us build upon the ILR management module to make it the best for you to use as possible.
