Next SmartJobBoard release is launched and ready for download. In this new 2.4 version we’ve significantly improved the software and added a few new complex functions. These features will be great advantage for international and niche oriented job sites.

Below I’ll describe the most important functions of the new release.

Resume Visibility option

Job seekers can choose whether his resume will be visible to all employers or only to selected employers or to all employers except the selected ones.
It’s useful in case job seeker doesn’t want his resume to be visible by some companies. E.g. the one where he currently works. Or he might chose to provide access to his resume only for particular list of companies.

Templates Highlight

Admin can turn on templates highlight mode in admin panel (Edit Templates section). When this mode is turned on the system will display the site front end with edit icon near each template displayed. If you hover mouse over that icon, template file name will be displayed. If you click on that icon, template file will be opened for editing.

Boolean Search

User can make Boolean search by including Boolean operators, such as AND, OR and NOT into the search query. This function is useful for advanced users who need to make complex searches.

Multi Currency System

Multi currency system is an great advantage for international job boards, or for job boards in countries with several currencies. Admin can add unlimited number of currencies to the system and set exchange rates. Currency list will be displayed to user for salary field, and system will automatically convert salary value to the default currency.

Notes for saved listings and applications

User can add his personal notes for saved listings for later review. Employers are also able to add personal notes for applications received. This function is useful when there are a lot of applications and saved listings. It should help user to organize his data.

After a few months of work with designers and HTML coders, we’ve finally finished integrating new design for our web site!
We’ve choose green and grey color scheme, since these colors are nice and not aggressive. The logo we choose includes green leaf, which also makes positive feeling.
Hope everyone will like new design. If you have any comments or suggestions, please leave it here.

Rather much time has passed since we released anything new. And this is because we were doing our best to include most innovative and requested features to our system to release version 2.3. There weren’t many improvements and modification in the system core, so this version is quite stable in comparison with previous one. We’ve also added a new template which at our opinion designed more professionally then previous ones, so there will be more choices for look and feel of your site.

Traditionally in this blog I’ll describe most useful and innovative functions that we’ve added. Please also visit our change log to see the full list of new functions.

Private messaging system

Well I guess everyone have already got the main idea based on the head line. This system allows job seeker and employer to send private messages to each others. They will see these messages in My Account section. The main advantage of using this system for communication between site users is that they will not know each other contact details. E.g. for some reason job seekers might not be willing to show his email, phone number or other contact information, but still need to communicate with employer to know some information he’s interested in. Using private messaging system he’ll be able to do that.

Banner Ads Module

Almost any web site owner needs to place banners on his site. After many requests from our customers we’ve finally added banner module which allows administrator to add image or flash banners and display them in different places on the site.

Search by company section

This function allows job seeker to search companies registered on site. It gives better visibility to employer profiles and more ways to search jobs for job seeker. This function also includes alphabetical index which simplifies the search.

Priority listings

Priority listings are displayed above the average search results and market with different color. Site administrator can charge users additional fee for placing priority ads. This gives you more options in monetizing your online service.

Also don’t forget to visit our demo page to view these features in action!

We proudly announce that now SmartJobBoard can be used for Spanish speaking users. Spanish language file is now included to the standard package and available for both: owned license and hosted version. You can view the Spanish translation on our demo by choosing “Español” option in the language select box.

More and more languages are going to be added to the SmartJobBoard package in future to make it easier to use for non-English speakers.

We’ve finally and proudly released SmartJobBoard v 2.2! Considering lots of suggestions from our current and prospective clients we’ve included the most requested functions and improvements. In contrast to previous releases, which were tested only by our own means, version 2.2 was also tested by our customers in real working environment.

In this post I’d like to outline only the most important functions which were implemented in v 2.2 and describe how they can be used to make a job board site more popular and successful. To see the full list of features, improvements and bug fixes, please take a look at our change log. To see v 2.2 in action please go to our live demo section.

Mass mailing system

Mass mailing allows sending newsletters with different promotion campaigns to attract site users visit it again. The “without listings” option is also useful if you want to send a reminder about your services to registered users who haven’t posted any jobs or resumes yet. This should encourage users to visit your site more often and make postings if they don’t have any.

Ability to create custom XML feeds via Admin Panel

There are Indeed and SimplyHired standard feeds included.
This allows you to boost your site traffic by exporting job postings to job search sites such as Indeed or SimplyHired. You only need to submit your feed to these sites and people will find jobs from your site among search results.

XML import function

Automatically fill your site with job postings by importing them from other job sites which provide XML feeds. E.g. Indeed and SimplyHired provide their jobs data in XML feeds for publishers. Thus to be able to import jobs from these site - you only need to become their publisher. You can also import jobs (or resumes) directly from companies’ or recruiters sites by creating custom XML data sources for these sites.

Job and Resume postings approval by site administrator

Eliminate unwanted and scam postings from your site by approving them first. Users will be notified by email about their postings being approved or rejected.

There are many new great functions already included to our road map. So we’re really excited about starting to work on the next release. If anyone have suggestions about new features or improvements feel free to leave a comment here or contact us.

SmartJobBoard, announcing the release of the new version 2.1 of its job board software. Release includes lots of new useful functions, bugs fixed, and performance optimization. Most important features to be outlined are: applications history and management for job seekers and employers, anonymous resumes, multi select lists, dashboard in admin panel and much more.

After releasing the first version in August SmartJobBoard has been successfully used by a number of online entrepreneurs to launch their job board sites. The software has showed itself as a reliable solution for running job sites for different niches and business models. This experience was considered working on a new version.

“We’ve made a big step to correspond to our customers’ requests. We’ve been carefully considering their needs, and did our best to implement this within our new version” says Rodion Telpizov SmartJobBoard CEO. “As a result the software became more robust, efficient and easy to customize without much technical knowledge.”

SmartJobBoard is looking forward to develop the best solution for job board web sites, by constantly improving its software and including new functions based on customers’ experience. One of the main plans for the nearest future is launching hosted version on the per month pricing basis. This will allow clients who don’t have their own hosting and technical staff to use SmartJobBoard solution.
