JE Custom Fields v2.0
This week’s releases point the focus on the Custom Fields extension for JobEngine.
In the previous versions of JE Custom Fields, you are able to add more fields for the job listings:
Although this feature is a great addition for customers who have specific needs for their job board, we have received many requests to expand the ability of the extension to also cover the resume listings. With this release, we’re glad to announce that those requests have been fulfilled.
For the text and textarea fields, the extension work similarly to job fields. However, the case is a little bit different for the “multi-value” tags, drop down and checkbox fields. When adding fields with those types, a taxonomy or tag (for “multi-value text”) is automatically created in the Resumes section. We decided to implement the new fields this way for easier data filtering when needed in the future.
Instead of defining details for the custom fields right in the settings page (e.g. the options for a dropdown field), you’ll only needs to declare the type of the new field.
After adding the new custom field for resumes, visit the taxonomy page to specify the options and you’re good to go.
