The current build on SiSi as it stands has a major
problem with the new recruitment interface.
The new adverts are nice, although they lack simple things like automated replies when someone applies, the ability to auto-renew the adverts, and even something to show they have expired or not are missing at present, I'm still hopeful they will appear at some point.
However, there is a fairly critical design issue which is going to make it very difficult for any
corporation with more than a handful of applications currently pending to recruit.
On TQ, since Revelations (maybe older, I'm fairly sure it was changed around then though), "Applications" list is simply a list in its own tab, with names and application date, and is sortable by both.
Although it doesn't look fancy, this is good, and allows you to find people you want to recruit assuming you don't simply accept everyone into your corporation, and you can even type the name of the character in to jump to it in the list.
However, the current build of Incarna has a major
problem:http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/5482/799527191415.pngThe list of Applications simply is unusable.
There is no sort function at all
, and the applications are not sorted by any displayed method. On top of this, there appears to be no way at all
to make the displayed list any bigger - its stuck at 2 and a half characters worth, making scrolling through it painful with only a handful of apps.
E-UNI gets around 60 applications a day, and only about half of which bother contacting us for the interview stage at the moment. Now there is no way to clear the old applications out other than opening them one at a time and rejecting them. We have an estimated 4500 applications pending.
The old system is bad enough, but at least it works
It's probably too late to do anything about it for launch, but we are going to have no other choice than to leave applicants waiting to join as we simply have no way of finding them so we can accept them into the corp.
Bug report number for this is 111128, reported almost a month ago along with other bugs in the new interface - this one however is quite literally a show-stopper for us.
Can we just have the old applications tab back please, or the contents of it in the little window?
