The 14.1 release provides critical functionality that will allow users to work faster and more efficiently through key performance enhancements, additional filtering, and import management improvements. Furthermore, iCIMS continues its commitment to mobile accessibility with iCIMS Connect, creating a mobile-optimized experience for passive candidates and more opportunities for employers to grow their talent and sourcing pools.
We are pleased to announce that the Menu Bar has been reorganized with more intuitive options for users: Create, Search, Report, Communicate, Library, Other, and Admin. With the new Menu Bar, the other menu will now hold all customized menu and sub-menu items.
In order to continue our commitment to customer experience we are encouraging all user admins to upgrade to the new menu bar prior to the 14.2 upgrade. The 14.2 upgrade (tentatively scheduled for January 2015) will automatically upgrade your system’s menu bar to the new version.
To update your system’s menu bar follow the steps below:
- Navigate to the System Configuration area of the Admin menu: Admin > System Configuration
- Chose the “Platform Navigation” option under “System” in the tree structure to the left.
- Change the “Menu List” selection to “New Menu List”.
- Hit Save.
We strongly suggest that you begin to use the new Menu Bar and contact the Helpdesk with any issues before the automatic Menu Bar upgrade after the 14.2 release.
Social Connect Portals are now completely mobile-optimized, providing an efficient experience for potential applicants.
Performance & Scalability
As companies grow, and the strain on their HR processes and systems mounts, iCIMS has made improvements to ensure that the Talent Platform performs consistently and reliably.

Email Attachment Enhancements
Users now have the ability to quickly and easily filter and search for attachments within the File Library.
