Advanced Filters Added to Entelo List Feature

Per the request of our valued customers, we're excited to announce our list feature has received a much needed upgrade!

More Robust List Feature

In early March of last year, we completely revamped our list feature. Additional features included mass adding of search results directly to lists, exporting ability, and searching within lists. Also, we included auto-generated lists such as ' Contacted Candidates' and 'Viewed Contacts' to give users a sense of their history with the tool.

‘Recently Updated’ Feature

Early in 2013, we introduced our 'recently updated' filter. This allowed users to search for candidates who have been making changes to their social profiles. According to our research, candidates making regular updates to their profiles are 7x more likely to make a career move. In our effort to help recruiters locate those elusive passive candidates, the recently updated filter is a crucial tool.
