Custom Form Improvements
New – July 9, 2019
Our in-built custom forms have become increasingly popular since we introduced it so we are pleased to announce some additional improvements to make these even more effective.
In addition to the current field types available:
- Tick Box
- Signature Field
- Text Field
- Date Field
We have added some additional fields:
- Multi-line Text Field
- Option Groups
Multi-line Text Fields are perfect for capturing paragraphs of information where a single line is not sufficient, and the Option Groups allow people completing the form to select one of multiple options. To make this more useful, we have provided up to 4 different option groups to use when creating new custom forms.
The new interface when completing custom forms is also much cleaner, allowing all non-signature fields to be completed "inline" without the previous pop-out form so the completion of the form flows effortlessly from top to bottom.
Completed forms are still instantly sent to both the sender and completer in PDF format and stored within Tracker as a PDF document in the record from which the custom form was sent.
We hope you enjoy the new features for custom forms!

Evolution Maps for Short and Long Lists
New – July 2, 2019
To make it easier to understand where all your Candidates are in relation to each other and the Client, we are pleased to release our new Evolution Maps feature!
We will be adding further improvements to this over the coming weeks but as of today you now have a new "Map" button on both the Shortlist and the Long List which will plot each of your Candidates neatly on a map, showing you where they are within your radius search and distance from the Client's office.
For the Long List you can use all the filters and sorts available in the main Long List, for example sort by Distance, and then click the "Map" button to see how these Candidates appear geographically!
Hovering over each Candidate on the map will tell you who they are and highlight them in the list to the left automatically. Clicking on the Candidate will open the Candidate's record on-page for you to review for shortlisting.
Likewise, clicking a Candidate in the list to the left will make the Candidate on the map "jump" up and down allowing you to clearly see where they are.
Each item on the left list still has a quick option to Shortlist as well as all the other contact and long listing options.
The same feature is available on the Shortlist providing the same functionality as the Card View.
Evolution Maps is provided by Google Maps allowing you to zoom in or out, enter full screen mode, street view, directions, satellite and terrain views and much more.
We will soon be rolling this out to Client, Contact and Candidate lists allowing you to filter and company or person in the system and view their relative locations on a map. Very useful for planning your client visits or prospecting Candidates to clients close to them.
Enjoy and watch this space!
Introducing Jobs +
New – June 27, 2019
TrackerRMS is excited to announce a new add on feature to our clients.
Jobs + is an automated career portal for TrackerRMS clients to drive traffic, convert applications, and improve the overall SEO performance of their website.
Where’s the value and how does it work?
The main purpose of Jobs+ is to drive more free traffic from third party sources, such as search engines, social media, job aggregators, and most importantly, Google for Jobs.
Job content is automatically pushed from the TrackerRMS system to the career portal, where prospective candidates can search, view, and apply to jobs. The career portal is blended with the look and feel of your existing site, ensuring candidates can navigate through it’s functionality seamlessly.
The solution is optimized for mobile use to ensure candidates can apply easily, from all devices, and increase the volume of applications. The job content is pushed out to external sources to increase the flow of applicant traffic.
Each job is constructed with the Google for Jobs schema, as well as the correct URL structure and keywords to ensure your job is indexed in Google and Google For Jobs.
Google search results and the Google for Jobs platform are typically the main drivers of free traffic, but Jobs + will also be indexed in Bing and other search engines.
Jobs are also pushed out to a continuously evolving list of free aggregators that currently includes Nuevo, Juju. Cuberfeed, Adzuna, and others.
In addition to candidates arriving directly to the job from detailed Google searches, the continuously changing keyword rich Jobs that are indexing in Google will improve your overall SEO performance.
The secondary function of Jobs + is to act as a re-engagement platform to keep candidates informed of new positions. The 'Job Alerts' functionality entices candidates to sign up through various ‘calls to action’ so they can be notified of jobs they may be interested in. When new positions that meet their job history criteria are posted to your site, these alerts are pushed out to them directly via email.
Jobs + requires very little from customers to go live.
How do I sign up?
Ready to proceed? Click on the link below.
Once you sign up to Jobs + your career portal will be live in less than 5 business days. Contracts are billed on a month to month basis and payment is taken via Stripe payments processing.
What are the benefits of using Jobs+? We create the careers page for you, with no work on your part!
Updated Mandatory Fields
New – June 6, 2019
You asked, and we listened! Our new enhancement in Evolution is designed specifically in response to our client requests.
In response to a need to identify mandatory fields when either creating or updating a record we will now:
- Continue to request mandatory fields when creating new records
- Clearly highlight mandatory fields that have not been completed in existing records with a red border and hover-over prompt
- We will not prevent saving and closing as before so nothing changes for the user
- As soon as a value is entered into a blank mandatory field, the red border will disappearWe hope this update makes your daily tasks easier, and as always, we love to hear client feedback!
New - May 28, 2019
What’s New in TrackerRMS? The New Candidate Planner! The Evolution Planner now allows an extremely effective review and planning of contract staff (and makes your life easier!) We aimed at providing a leading planner for resource management.
Let’s hear about the new functionality in TrackerRMS! Our goal as a company is always to make your recruitment process run as smoothly as possible. Our development team has been working hard to integrate this new functionality into Tracker’s software, and we hope you love it is much as we do! What’s better than a feature that was designed to help you? 😊
Here’s what’s new: The new planner view shows all planned utilization alongside booked timesheet time. You now also have direct access to both the timesheet and the placement record from this page and can see the assignment, client, placement status, and the name of each activity.
There are new buttons that allow for users to navigate quickly from month to month or refresh! The + button allows users to instantly add a new “internal” activity which gets added straight to both utilization and the Candidate’s timesheet:
Hovering over any timesheet entry shows the time book to that activity and day:
Hovering over any planned day shows the planned utilization, and changes the icon allowing users to instantly delete it rather than going into the placement record to amend:
Hovering over any non-planned day allows you to add in utilization immediately on a day not currently utilized:
This format is also now rolled out to the main “Planner” option on the Time & Expense menu and shows the details for all candidate in one place.
