GDPR update (6): added trigger actions and added consent information to match, improved German translations

Updated over a week ago

This two weekly Carerix release update is a pre-release note. We would like to give you more insights in upcoming changes and give you the opportunity and time to prepare/adapt to upcoming feature releases, updates and bug fixes. In two weeks from now this update will be live. In this Carerix Release (5.0.194) the following updates are included:

Improved German translations

The German translations of the user interface have been evaluated and updated. If you are using the German interface you might encounter some changes. Custom translated items will not be affected.


New Trigger actions

In release two trigger events will be added that might highly attribute to your GDPR processes:

1. Added a trigger action to set consent status

This trigger action will allow you to change the consent status based on a particular event in your database. For example: if candidate status is changed into X or match stage is set to Y than set consent status to Z.

2. Added a trigger action to set consent date on current date (today)

This trigger action can automate the setting of the approval date based on an event in Carerix and may help you in further automate your GDPR processes. For example: if you have certain events that call for an update of the consent date, one will be able to do so. It offers a higher level of flexibility to implement different ways and interpretations of 'consent given events'. Please note that you can always been asked to prove that the candidate explicitly has given the consent. Therefore caution with using this trigger action is advised.

In order to have immediate insight in the consent status and the expiration of the consent (if given) we have added this information in the hint panels of the candidate and match file next to the creation and modification date.

What else can you expect from Carerix with regard to GDPR

In the upcoming weeks and months we will update the system with other feature updates that together with the date and status of consent will provide you with a set of tools that will help you monitoring the status of the consent and if the consent is about to expire, revoked or renewed. Next to that we will offer tooling to align interfacing software like your website with this new functionality.
