Lever’s Spring 2021 Release: New ATS + CRM Features

happy employee working from home

In Lever’s Spring Release, we’re excited to introduce Dynamic Requisition Approval Workflows, Visual Insight Bookmarks and Exports, Fast Resume Review enhancements, and brand new integrations with platforms that many of you know and love. 

Introducing Dynamic Requisition Approvals

Approval workflows are not new to Lever. However, customer feedback has shown us there is more we can do to support complex approval structures for scaling companies by making those structures more flexible and easier to manage.

With Dynamic Requisition Approvals, we are introducing the ability for TA teams to configure dynamic workflows that automatically identify the correct individuals for approval requests, allowing teams to get approvals completed faster. 

Dynamic Requisition Approvals is great for scaling companies and companies that might not have a standardized approval process in place due to its flexibility. While we are starting with requisitions, we will be extending this functionality to offer approval workflows later this year.

Enhancements to Fast Resume Review

We’ve received a lot of great feedback from customers since we released Fast Resume Review. Now, we’re excited to share we are updating the feature to improve it further

For those new to Fast Resume Review, the feature allows recruiters to cut through their digital stack of inbound resumes faster and automate candidate follow-up. 

With our Spring Release, here’s how we’re improving the Fast Resume Review workflow:

  • Pull in responses to custom application questions, improving recruiter efficiency by removing the need to switch between multiple windows during the review process.
  • Advance candidates to a pipeline stage of your choice instead of the most immediate step in the pipeline. This added flexibility will help recruiters move candidates to the appropriate stage faster. 
  • View a new summary screen, which is displayed at the end of a Fast Resume Review session. Recruiters can now view applicants they’ve categorized by type (archived, advanced, or skipped) and have the ability to bulk-email advanced candidates directly from the summary screen. 

Bookmark your favorite Visual Insight reports

Recreating reports can be a timely activity and one also prone to human error. In an effort to improve the speed at which you can access your most common Visual Insight reports, we are now allowing you to save and store filter configurations that are important to you. 

Each user will have the ability to create a maximum of 50 Visual Insight bookmarks, which will be neatly organized and displayed on the left side of your dashboard for quick access. 

In addition to bookmarks, additional Visual Insight exports are available, most notable is the ability to export non-anonymized EEO/OFCCP data.
