eRecruiter is an essential part of eCoordinator and it fits seamlessly into your organization's website. eRecruiter is a tremendously flexible product. When your eRecruiter account was set-up, choices were made by you and our staff to figure out what your organization wanted or needed. Because your account has been customized, you may or may not have all of the following options:
A website that your volunteers can:
An additional option is having other organizations or agencies register with you and post their opportunities. This is called an "Organization eRecruiter."
In Release 6.1, a new optional look for eRecruiter was introduced. This new format:
Any eRecruiter built after the Release 6.1 utilize the new options. If you have an older version of eRecruiter it will continue to operate the same as before. Implementing this change to your older version of eRecruiter is not automatic and requires customization work or upgrading to the current version of eRecruiter. Consequently, there is a cost associated with making the change to the new eRecruiter format. For information about the cost of the customization work, contact Client Services at 1-888-904-6060. Unless specifically requested, your older version of eRecruiter will continue to operate the same as before and no additional costs are incurred.
Release 6.8 introduced a significant change to how eCoordinator and eRecruiter interact with one another. Up until version 6.8, an placements and referrals made via eRecruiter were controlled by that specific eRecruiter account. When volunteers would search for opportunities and eventually find one that they would like to sign-up for, they would click the sign-up button. What happened at that point was determined by your eRecruiter. Upon clicking to sign-up, the volunteer was either referred, placed, or both:
The image above is taken from Recruiter Management System (RMS), and is the back-end control system for your eRecruiter. It is available only to customers who have leased licenses for that product. As you can see, when volunteers click to sign-up, eRecruiter had all control over the behavior of the system.
So the default setting of your eRecruiter to either place or refer volunteers upon sign-up is applied to all of your opportunities. However, some of your programs may strictly control sign-ups, requiring the eRecruiter to refer volunteers, while other programs may rather have the placements be automatic. eCoordinator now offers an option to designate which opportunities will place volunteers, and whichwill only refer them, and overrides your eRecruiter default setting:
