First - Thanks to all who are contributing to this site!
I have been using the careers portal but finding that its not fully completed. I installed 8 and upgraded to 9.
Things I have found not to work correctly are:
1. Allow candidates to register and update their contact information. (Code missing - you cant see the checkbox to select that you havent registered before)
Update: The problem is that the info on the first page is confusing. If you do not attempt to sign in, it will later give the option. If you use the first page to login, it works. I am re-writing the wording and trying to put a checkbox in place where the user can put a check mark and the login portion becomes available. :End Update
2. EEO/EOC Support (even though its enabled, it doesnt prompt on the Careers portal)
3. Searching functionality doesnt exist. It can be coded in though by using the same function of searching with in CATS administration area.
UPDATED: I have also noticed the Calendar does not allow you to set reminders, but the system is configured for it. (Missing Code)
I will be working on fixing the above Unless someone else already has and I havent seen the post yet.
THanks again for this site. I will be hopefully adding more info soon!
Ok. I will post my fixes in this same post.
Issue: Calendar not allowing to set events.
Answer: Go into modules/calendar/calendarUI.php
On line 298 (or close by) change the line
from: $this->_template->assign('allowEventReminders', $allowEventReminders);
to: $this->_template->assign('allowEventReminders', true);
That fixes the issue with not being able to set reminders. (its a work around until I can find where the variable is in the db and set it there!)
Issue: EEO/EOC Support .
Answer: You must add a few lines of code to get this function. Here is an example below. I added them after the Zip code.
<tr><td class="label"><label id="input-eeo-gender">Gender (Voluntary):</label></td>
<tr><td class="label"><label id="input-eeo-race">Race (Voluntary):</label></td>
<td class="label"><label id="input-eeo-veteran">Veteran Status (Voluntary):</label></td>
<td class="label"><label id="input-eeo-disability">Disability (Voluntary):</label></td>
I have tested and they now show up on the portal! They will also populate the database (so far only on NEW applicants though).. Im testing more.
