Support » Plugin: Job Manager » Paid Add-on Suggestions

  • Hi Thomas,

    We’ve been testing Job Manager for a couple of weeks and we’ll go live with it next week. We really like the base functionality and we’d be happy to buy add-ons, if you had some, so here are few ideas for add-ons to Job Manager that I – and many others I’m sure – would gladly pay for. They’ll expand the capabilities of the plugin and add some security too. Hope this helps!

    1. ENHANCED APPLICANT INFORMATION MANAGER:

    Many organizations have different needs for the information they collect from applicants, and they want a centralized, protected place to store it.

    This enhancement would start by creating a new protected directory for the candidate when an application is made. Their uploaded resume, cover letter, etc. would be stored here. You could make all candidate directories subdirectories to a directory called “job manager”, or whatever the admin wants to specify upon installation of the plugin.

    Next, add a “file upload” link to each candidate in the “applicant dashboard”. This will enable Job Manager users to add files to a candidate’s profile (things like an employment application, list of references, reference checks, copy of vehicle insurance, driver’s license, non-disclosure agreements, non-compete agreements, etc.) Centralizing storage of related documents has lots of value.

    Make the “download” link in the dashboard a dropdown with a list of all the files in the applicant’s profile, or just have a link to all the files on the applicant’s detail page – either would work.

    2. ADDITIONAL STATUS CODES – CUSTOMIZABLE

    On the settings page allow the admin to add checkboxes with custom labels that will appear on the Applicant Detail page. The custom labels would enable job manager users to add statuses such as these, or any others they may want, and each one could also display a time stamp and user name when it’s checked, the same way adding comments does:

    Awaiting Response from Applicant
    Offer Made
    Offer Accepted
    References Checked
    Hired

    3. MULTIPLE APPLICATION FORMS AND JOB FORMS

    Enable admins to save a form once it’s designed and then create a new one. Each form could either have it’s own shortcode that could be placed on a page, or you could let the admin specify a page to be created for each form.

    Hope these suggestions help!

    1. Testing this now will be in the next release – protected directory for all upload data but still being able to utilize the WP media for sorting etc.

    2. You can already add custom labels that display on Applicant Detail Page. What we need to look into is creating a Sticky Link to be able to check and unchecked it from “INDIVIDUAL Applications”.

    3. Forms needs a complete overhaul. Something we are planing on.

    Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

    Thanks Thomas! Will there be a separate directory for each candidate?

    Also, I can’t seem to find how to add custom labels that display on Applicant Detail Page. I know I can select “Show this field in the Application List?” from the application form, but I wouldn’t want these internal use only status fields to show on the candidate application form.

    Regarding adding custom labels that display on Applications list and Applicant Detail Page, I created a category called “internal use only” and assigned fields (for example, Offer Made & Offer Accepted) to it so they don’t show up on the published application. Then I selected “Show this field in the Application List?” and a heading appears in the applications list but there’s no data in the field and no way to input data within the applications list.
