Turnaround Time Report benchmarking and filters

Turnaround Time Report benchmarking and filters

The Turnaround Time Report now supports benchmarking and can be filtered by different jobs and RCs.

Why this is awesome: Now, you can objectively assess how strong your interview scheduling performance is compared to the industry standard and drill it down to specific areas of improvement.

AI-powered Job Categories

We’re proud to announce Job Categories. Through the power of Natural Language Processing, all job titles are now categorized automatically, which allows you to benchmark job performance based on the type of job.

Why this is awesome:  Hiring for different jobs varies tremendously based on the type of job, so it’s crucial to be able to sort your reporting accordingly. Over the upcoming weeks, this filter will be applied to all applicable GoodTime reports.

Training tag improvements

GoodTime training tags

The logic for which trainee gets selected when tags are used has been completely optimized to prioritize graduation progress, timezone proximity, and much more.

Why this is awesome: The best talent gets snagged the fastest. That’s why it’s important to interview quickly. The training tag improvements increase your graduation rate and let you interview faster than ever before.

Cancelation and reschedule reasons

Rescheduling reasons

Now you can record the reason for each interview cancellation and reschedule.

Why this is awesome: The volume of cancellations and reschedules on their own do not tell the story of why they’re happening. By tracking the reasons, you can actually drill down on how to improve your process.

Pulse Score visualization

Pulse score visualization

The Pulse Report now shows how your Pulse Scores fluctuate over time with an all-new line chart that can be filtered by different job titles. This can be aggregated to daily, weekly, or monthly averages.

Why this is awesome:  Now you can see how changes in your operations affect Candidate satisfaction over time and drill down sources of low scoring.

Slack Integration v2

We are upgrading our existing Slack Integration and adding support for creating Slack channels for interviewers.

Why this is awesome:  We heard you! Having a Slack channel for your interviewers to collaborate with each other is very helpful. It used to be done manually, but we now automate it for time savings that really add up!

Message Blurb and Interview Template search, sort, and filtering

  • Pre-filter message blurbs to only show created ones by users
  • Users can now search and archive message blurbs to stay organized

Enhanced stage change automation logic
