Great to hear, Brian. Anything you could share a screenshot of?
Great question. The Canvas chat platform does several things that Slack or similar platforms cannot do:
Allows recruiters to build a profile of a candidate while they chat with them. This profile is quickly shareable alongside full chat transcripts to hiring managers and other folks who would benefit from seeing that relationship.
Serves up relevant questions, responses, and resources as the AI engine recognizes they are pertinent or appropriate. A recruiter will build and maintain interview transcripts for the various jobs they're hiring for which will help train the recommendation engine in the beginning. This will get smarter over time.
Because all candidate info is inside of one system, they can do all kinds of interesting things like showing you similar candidates to someone you've just started a conversation with.
Tons of recruiter performance metrics for the recruiters themselves, and their managers.
Having chats managed in Canvas, the system has access to play with the data in ways that aren't possible on native messaging apps or Slack.
It's all SMS through whatever native messaging app candidates use on their phones. The Canvas web app and mobile app is just for the recruiter to manage all conversations and candidates.
Recruiters usually just send a message on LinkedIn saying something like "Hey, it looks like you might be a great fit for [role]. Would you be interested in chatting? We use a system called Canvas which allows us to do this over text so that it's more convenient. Wanna try it out?"
So far, candidates have been very receptive to giving their cell, especially because they'll usually exchange numbers anyway in order to do a phone screen.
I can answer this! Canvas is a web app and mobile app for recruiters to manage conversations with all of their candidates.
Candidates themselves never have to download anything; they simply text from whatever native texting app they always use on their phone.
Recruiters are playing a lot of phone tag right now in order to perform fewer than 10 phone screens a day. Canvas will allow them to complete the screening process with dozens of candidates at the same time. Once candidates have been vetted to the point where the recruiter feels confident in their skills, then the recruiter will share that candidate's profile ("portrait") with the hiring manager who will complete the rest of the interview process...usually over the phone or in person.
It's just for the initial candidate screening, then the candidate will move further down the interview pipe. And haven't you had personal conversations over text?
This pulls the shadow inward from each side so that it's not as wide as the source layer, right? I don't think I've ever tried this in CSS before.
You should check out Sketch Runner. It's a plugin that does exactly this.
Get anything this afternoon? We sent them through Gumroad, so it shouldn't matter if you unsubbed. That would've just been from the MailChimp list, but not our customer list.
Love it! Really great update, and I'm fairly impressed with how legacy pinning/resizing migrated into the new tool. I'd say they were about 80% accurate with the functionality I was expecting.
In related news, UX Power Tools has been updated to use 100% native Sketch resizing. If you're a customer, you should have received an update in your email. If not, let me know.
Yeah, it's a good find. It's very common for me to design with content flowing off the screen, so it's good to know this limitation now. Thanks for sharing.
