Broadbean Integration - Introduce Adverts Tab For Overview on Advert Status
This release introduces an 'Adverts' tab to the Requirement entity.
Copy Multiple Ownership On Requirement Over To Commission Splits Table
When creating an offer the Placed By user will be allocated 100% on the commission splits table but all other users that own the requirement will be included in the list with a split value of 0 to allow the values to be amended. If a team is set as an owner then all users within the team will be used - including teams within teams.
API Ability to get skills

Performance Improvements to Background Service
Updates were required to the Background Service further to users experiencing delays with:
These are linked with CPU spikes on the Background Service resulting in bottle necks and backlog build ups. An investigation was required to resolve the cause of backlog build ups, as well as additional failsafe options needing to be added for auditing and future troubleshooting analysis.
Merge Fields Not Converted When in Header/Footer/Textbox of Uploaded Template
Instances where merge codes have failed to convert when using an ‘Uploaded Template’ have been rectified. This was due to data dictionary clause issues, rather than require code to resolve. Fix applied to all systems.
Help With Deleting A Skill – Timeout Issues
In instances where clients have a built up a large skills library, when attempting to delete a skill, on occasion it would timeout and fail to deliver.
Duplicate Candidates from CV Parser Register button
It has been raised that it is possible to double click on the register button via the CV parser and this process create duplicate candidate records.
Working Date range on Placement Selection error
In the previous sprint, we introduced a date range search to the Offer and Placement selection screen. On the Placement selection screen, the ‘Working’ date range filter wasn’t working correctly.
Work undertaken between: 08/01/19 – 21/01/19
