Luna Release 2.1

Hi Dream Team

While we know some of you are already on leave, our 2.1 release went live this week and we thought we'd share all the updates, new functionality and new announcement format with you!

As you will see, this release update is now available inside of Luna and you now have access to all previous release notes too! To navigate to the release archive page, click the "Releases" option in the top right navigation pane, above your user menu:

  • New "Offer Contact Report" module allowing recruiters to capture and have visibility of attempts to contact pending contract consultants during the offer phase:

Luna Statuses:

  • The ECS (Employee Contract Status) for "Scheduled" was updated to "Offer Accepted" to avoid any confusion with the actual offer status of "Scheduled".

  • Bulk updating of statuses was introduced on both a request and applicant level (permission-dependent!).

Client Portal "Pushing Paper" Module:

We have released the first part of our "self-service" Pushing Paper functionality directly into the client portal allowing them to:

  • See more information about the request.
  • See a breakdown of their Consultants in each of the submittal / onboarding buckets (similar to how we see it in the admin portal):

  • Ability for clients to:
    • Bulk "Schedule" interviews with consultants.
    • Bulk "Reject" consultants.
    • Bulk "Book" consultants.
  • This allows them to actually bypass the interview phase completely and book the consultants immediately!
  • When clients bulk "Book" consultants they are asked to confirm the project start and end dates, allowing this information to be visible in Luna much earlier on in the process:

General Luna Updates:

  • In addition to the client being able to complete the scheduling and booking actions, the ability to "Book" and "Confirm" consultants is now also available in the request admin portal.
