Product Update #1: Instant messaging – last seen

New Product Update

Even though some people have spent the last few weeks deep in winter hibernation, our tech team has been working away at the platform. Their latest triumph is the new ‘last seen’ feature.

What does this mean for you?

Instant messaging is a powerful tool, especially when it comes to hiring. But when you’re trying to chat to someone quickly it’s annoying when you can’t see whether they’ve received your message or not.

Nothing is more annoying than being in the dark, or worse – ghosted! The number of people (candidates and employers!) who fail to reply was staggering to us, so we built our last seen feature to show each side who has read messages. Think of it a bit like the old ‘read receipt’ feature on emails.

This means more efficient candidate interactions for you as you can now clearly see who is eager, who is thinking about it and who is not interested.

How does it work?

Simply log on to the hiring platform and send a message. As soon as your message is opened you will get your update.

We made sure that this works on both sides, so be sure to be just as prompt replying to your eager applicants!

When your candidate has received and opened your message, this is what you will see.

Log on and start communicating more efficiently today!
