What is the best way to store and search resumes in act! 2011?

Happy new year!

 

I am a  recruiter and just got a Act 2011- (have a very old version before)

 

 A couple of questions for the talented folks of this fine community.............

 

1) What is the best way to attach a resume if it comes in as an email-

 

2) What is the best way to attach a resume so i can search the body of the resume

 

3) Is there any way to attach a resume so it pre fills a new contact record and saves the resume to be searched?

 

4) what is the best way to cut and paste a resume if you don't have in a word document- in the notes?

 

Thanks for any advice- !

Hello Mberlin,

Welcome to the Sage ACT! Online Community!

 

I can't really answer for best practices for attaching resumes, but as FYI...

 

In Sage ACT! 2012, the Universal Search option was added which allows the content of attached documents to searched.  Prior versions will not search the content of attached documents.

Is there a way to search all fields at once?  I thought that was a new feature.

The new 'Universal Search' will search all fields, notes, histories, and document contents.

Universal Search is not required to search all fields, that can be done with the Search on Keywords option (Lookup > Advanced > Search on Keywords). Advanced Search is available in previous versions of Sage ACT!.
