We are constantly working to improve our email effectiveness and in this endeavour we have designed two new features: Email Limit Now you can send 15,000 emails per day per recruiter. This includes the number of emails sent in Job campaigns. In the create campaign page at the top right, you will be able to see the number of emails sent on a particular day. This will help you prioritise jobs and campaigns. Email Job reference Including job references in emails can contribute to improving response rates. Hence with this release you will not be able to send emails without any reference to jobs. As a result, any template used to send emails should include links to the Job description page.

New Product Feature – June, 2014 – Usability Improvements

0

At MyParichay, we care about making our products easy to use. A few months back we observed a few recruiters use Social Retargeting (TM) and identified a bunch of little things that will make the experience better. We started by increasing the number of profiles shown on the People Search and Folders page to 50. To help you keep track of the number of profiles selected on these pages, just refer to the label at the top, that tells you how many profiles selected out of the total number of profiles. The next thing that we focused on was making navigation between pages easy to do. We placed the Save and Options button close to the page numbers on the People Search & Folders page respectively. We did this to make sure you don’t waste time scrolling up and down within pages. Jump through the several pages in your search results

New Product Feature – May, 2014 – List Import from Shine

0

With this release we have moved a step closer towards eliminating a commonly occurring friction point in starting a Parichay campaign. Social Retargeting(TM) starts by uploading an excel sheet from other job boards. Previously, a recruiter had to go through the process of downloading an excel file from another website and then uploading it on MyParichay. We found this process redundant and so you can now directly import candidates without leaving MyParichay. The Recipients section in the Create Campaign page now has an option to import candidates from Shine. Select Shine as the option from the dropdown and click on Import Recipients. Based on the search you have performed we will search for candidates from Shine and tell you how many people you can Retarget. Then, give a name to this list and click on Import. You are now all set to send a campaign to all these candidates from
