JobEngine v2.3 and JE PayPal Express

Major bugs on the payment plan landed in our email last week so we have to make several tweaks on the flow to fix the issues. This time the flow is less complicated but would mean extra work for those who favor how things work before. Our apologies for that.

The primary changes are on the flow of approval and publishing of jobs especially on package plans. So you would easily grasp the whole picture, please take a look at the scenarios of how the process was before and how it is now.

JE LinkedIn joins JobEngine’s job import plugin trio

It’s no longer threesome awesome for JobEngine’s job import plugins – JE Indeed, JE SimplyHired, and JE RSS Importer. The trio is joined today by JE LinkedIn, an extension that will fill your boards with jobs from

JE LinkedIn works almost alike with the other three. Admins can manually import and clean up jobs…

…or conveniently do it with a scheduler. When scheduling job import, admins have to predefine the job category, job type, and job author. You can create schedules as many as you need, enable or disable or completely remove them anytime you need to. A job previously imported won’t be imported again.

Like JE Indeed, JE LinkedIn also has an option to display “Job by LinkedIn” label. When ticked to display, the label is seen on the right of each LinkedIn job in job listings in the frontend.

Another noted feature is that LinkedIn jobs are viewed like normal jobs in the frontend. When a jobseeker clicks a LinkedIn job, he’ll be able to view the job details in your job board and will only be redirected to Linked job page when he clicks the “Apply” button.

JobEngine v2.2 features Pay-to-View Resumes, JE Coupon and JE Stripe fix issues with WP3.6

Jobseekers got their keys to hide or unhide some details on their profiles with the Anonymous profile feature we released last week. This week’s update, JobEngine v2.2, covers a sweet feature that caters more to the admins. We know many of you have been waiting for this; thanks for your replies on our blog posts. So here comes Pay-to-View Resumes.

The very name implies what the feature is – employers who wish to view resume details will be required to upgrade their account. Of course, it would require payments.

Admins can manage this function with Enable and Disable buttons on Engine Settings > Resumes > Payment.

Everything works the same when this function is disabled – anyone can view resume details. When enabled, all users are still able to view the resume listings but need to upgrade their accounts to view the Resume Detail page.

Just a note: Having an upgraded account doesn’t change how the anonymous profile works.
If a jobseeker sets his profile to anonymous, only companies that received his job application can view his full resume.

The whole Pay-to-View Resumes process – from admins creating a payment plan through employers making payments to admins approving and rejecting upgrade account requests (for Cash payments) – works very similar to that of posting jobs.

JobEngine releases new JE Paymill and JE JobAlert v1.2

Introducing JE Paymill

Wider payment options, much easier and faster business transactions!

JobEngine releases today a new plugin which would be a great add-on to your cashless payment options. JE Paymill, with its wide currency coverage, lets you provide your customers with more choices when making payments alongside Google Checkout, Paypal, and 2Checkout.

Paymill caters at least 120 currencies to date and that is tantamount to making your JobEngine available to most people around the globe.

JE Paymill requires only a few information to process a payment: credit card number, expiry date, card’s code, card owner’s name, and address (the last two are even optional). Fewer required fields speed up payment transactions.

JobEngine 2.1 dons Anonymous Profile feature

Last week, we officially launched the Jobseeker Module with a promise of improved features from your insights. JobEngine 2.1 carries the top most demand on the list – more confidentiality on jobseekers’ profile.

“Anonymous” profile feature

This anonymous feature allows a jobseeker to control who sees his profile. To walk-through this feature, logged in as a jobseeker and go to Dashboard > Profile Settings > Privacy.

Jobseeker Privacy Settings – JobEngine, WordPress job board theme, job board software

The Privacy panel provides the Confidential Mode buttons – click Enable to make the profile viewable to only a limited few or hit Disable to make it public.

Anonymous here doesn’t mean that no profile information is visible at all when the resume is displayed in the listings. Though termed as confidential, it doesn’t mean absolute privacy. The note which jobseekers will clearly see on the privacy page explains what data will be hidden.

JobEngine 2.0 sports new Jobseeker Profile

Leveling up to version 2.0, JobEngine sports a home for jobseekers’ profiles with easy-to-setup, quick registration process, and seamless mobile performance features. What’s more? All these new additions come in gorgeous look.

Easy to setup

Getting started with building your jobseeker’s profile hub is like learning the alphabet after you have gotten your bachelor’s diploma. But first things first – upgrade your JobEngine to 2.0. In the admin panel, the Engine Settings menu now includes “Resumes” and when you click on it, it shows the Enable and Disable buttons for the resume section.

Turning on the feature will add a new Resume tab in navigation in the frontend.

The next thing to do is to make sure that this section won’t give you a headache in the future. While still on a fresh start, it’s better to determine how you want the resumes are categorized in your site.

Update: JobEngine v1.1.8

Job posters receive an email when paying by Cash

When you post a job and pay by cash, a notice where to send the payment to appears right after you clicked the Cash button. But it takes only 10 seconds at most to see the note on the screen –perhaps enough time to read the full message. But just when you realize you need to copy the bank account number, Alas!… the message is gone.And once you miss it, the option left to get the account details is to contact the site’s admin.

So we added an email notification to every cash payment.

In backend, you will now see an email template “Sent to employers when they post a job and choose to pay by Cash” added to the list. If you need to modify the content, feel free to make your changes.

Still on emails, we fixed a bug that renders the special characters (- and &) incorrectly. The error occurred on the email subject but you should see the characters as they are by now.

JobEngine releases v1.1.7, fixes issues on Expiry Dates and Payment Plans

As soon as you see the “update to JobEngine version 1.1.7” prompt in the backend, please hit that button – right away. For this version, we solved some major issues related to multiple jobs in a payment plan and expiry dates.

Bug #590:On payment plans with multiple jobs, thesecond job is published Active even if the first job is still unpaid and unapproved.

When a job poster pays using Cash, the first job post displays “unpaid” and has to be approved by the admin (upon payment). Once approved, only then that the second and succeeding jobs included in the plan will be published active.
If the job poster publishes the first and second jobs in a row, the first post displays “unpaid” and the second one displays “pending.” If admin approves the second post, the first post remains non-active. The third and succeeding jobs will be published active upon posting.
Everything works the same as above when admin enabled “Pending Jobs” and job poster pays through Paypal or other payment gateways. If “Pending Jobs” is disabled, all jobs are posted active right away except when paid through Cash method.

Weekly Update: JobEngine v1.1.6 and JE Coupon v1.2

Out of a hundred companies, there might only be one or two which name starts with a number. When one of you notified us that he doesn’t see one of his client companies in the “Companies” page despite having an active job post, we knew we missed something. (Whew! How did we miss this one?)

JobEngine v1.1.6 got some fixes on company names’ display, incorrect texts, number of views of jobs, and more. We also patched some features including the text editor for “Job description” in Post-a-Job page.

On “Companies” page, we added a column for companies with initial numbers on names. We also made an adjustment that will reset to zero the number of views when a job is renewed.

And here’s one that seems trivial but could be a helpful tool in your marketing strategy. Between $1.99 and $2, our minds usually tell us that $1.99 is a lot cheaper when in fact it’s just a cent difference. We fixed that, too, so you can start pricing your payment plans with cents.

JE Custom Fields and JE Coupon

It took us some time to finally release what we think are must-have plugins for your JobEngine. Have you visited our Extensions page yet? We currently got five extensions in store and we’re adding two more called JE Custom Fields and JE Coupon.

JE Custom Fields: Personalize your Post-a-Job form

Everyone just loves the idea of personalizing things. Not only it gives one freedom to do what he wants but also speaks of satisfaction that one gets from doing something his heart dictates.

JE Custom Fields has something to do with making the Post a Job form in your JobEngine a personalized one. Besides the default job information fields, are there other job details you need your employers to provide for jobseekers? How about a field for the application submission’s end-period? Length of contract? Work shifts? Surely, employers would like to have them on their job page and jobseekers would want to see those information, too.

Work in progress: JobEngine jobseeker module

Well, we’ve received a lot of requests from our dear customers to support a jobseeker section in JobEngine. Guess what? We’ve actually been working on one since last month!

Although we’re still figuring how things should work and changing them around for the most optimized user experience, the first round of our design work has come down to a notable version and we just can’t wait to reveal to you some parts of it.

Basically, the module inherits the current JobEngine style and strictly follows the simplicity philosophy of EngineThemes. We asked questions and looked for answers under different roles and perspectives. What would job board owners really need when supporting jobseekers in their job boards? More important, what should they need to support? What would employers look for when they’re searching for a qualified candidate? And how would jobseekers want their professional profiles built?

This way of brainstorming makes sure the final design first to be useful for its audience, then to be elegantly clear and clean.
