This article is designed to help first-time Avionté Web Platform users identify items in the application. There are a variety of reference articles available in the Avionté Web Platform section of the knowledge base including an Avionté Web Platform Overview, FAQs, Avionté Web Platform Error Messages, and a specific knowledge base section dedicated to each Avionté Web Platform section.
After becoming familiar with Avionte Web Platform terminology in this article, new users are encouraged to set up their application by following the steps in the Avionte Web Platform - Getting Started series.
Avionte Web Platform is organized into modules - the Recruiter module, the Job board module, and the Talent module.
The Recruiter module is the base of the platform, Avionté Web Platform featuring the controls today's staffing recruiter uses to manage contacts, talent, and orders. The Recruiter Module is organized into distinct sections - Talent, Order, Company, Contact, Posting, and Admin.
The Recruiter module's Talent section provides a convenient, comprehensive view of employees available for work. Recruiters can quickly access information about an individual such as skills, location, and current status.
When a customer requests that a staffing agency fill a position, the staffing agency creates an order in Avionté Web Platform . The order includes information about the position: desired qualifications, position description, salary range, hiring company contact information, etc. Avionté Web Platform does not yet have the ability to create or manage temp orders or positions, however, an Avionté Web Platform job board is able to post temp positions created and managed from the Avionté core application.
Manage information about a customer in the Recruiter module's Company section.
The Contact section is used to manage information about company contacts.
Once an order has been created, a user with Job board publishing permission is able to view the order in the Posting section. A job posting can be created to fulfill the order's requirements. The Posting section displays a list of orders, filters to refine the list of orders, the ability to create multiple job posts, and the ability to see how many live posts already exist for an order.
The Admin section is used to configure multiple features in Avionté Web Platform . Through Admin, a recruiter can configure permissions, Talent Module settings, and job boards.

Job Board Module
The short video below walks through the fundamental setup and use of the job board.
The Job Board Module features tools used to create a job board, brand the job board, then post openings to the job board.
A job board is created in the Admin - Job boards section. From here, a job board is named, branded, and has a unique URL assigned to it. Up to five job boards can be supported at one time - each with their own identity and branding.
Avionté Web Platform's Job Board provides a convenient, comprehensive view of all jobs that are currently available to job seekers. Job Seekers can quickly access information about the job's title, location, and a brief description of the position. They can also apply directly from the main screen.

Once a job seeker clicks "Apply Now" on an Avionté Web Platform job board, the applicant is able to manage aspects of their unique profile including simple identification information and associated documents such as resumes. Talent Module refers to the section in which an applicant manages their unique profile information. Talent Module settings are configured in the Recruiter Module's Admin section.
An applicant has the ability to upload a resume in the Talent Module. A resume's information is parsed into the Avionté application and saved as a record for the applicant.
An applicant receives a confirmation following an application to a position. The applicant can continue or exit to a website defined in the Recruiter module's Admin section.

Using Avionté Web Platform - Recruiter Module
The Recruiter Module is the base of the Avionté Web Platform, featuring the controls today's staffing recruiter uses to manage contacts, talent, and orders. Many functions, such as adding Talent, adding a contact, and adding an order, are similar from section to section. The Add Talent section is highlighted in this Getting Started guide as an example as to how the other sections similarly work.
Talent can be added into Avionté Web Platform by a resume parse (auto-gathering of information from a document) or by manually adding the information.
For either method, open the Add talent wizard by selecting the from the top of the Avionté Web Platform Talent window in your web browser.
Parse from resume
Resumes uploaded into Avionté Web Platform can be automatically parsed into the system.
To parse a resume through the Add talent functionality:
- Click to open Add Talent.
- Click to access files on your computer.
- Browse for the resume.
- Click on the resume file.
- Click Open.
- Click Parse Resume. The information from the resume is now available under the Talent's record.
The Avionté Web Platform resume parser is a centralized, cloud-based service that provides multilingual parsing in more than 25 languages and parses from more than 50 different formats. The resume parser does not require a separate web service setup; one web service is set up in the cloud for all customers to use.
The resume parser currently takes one request at a time from a particular client and it can handle multiple clients at a time. However, the parser cannot take a request to parse multiple resumes at once from the same client application. Any bulk processing can be done through core application's bulk resume processor.
The Resume link on the Talent card, , will display the most recently parsed resume.
If a parse is successful, the document is saved under Talent > Profile Quicklink > Documents. The resume will display a "(parsed)" label.
If a parse fails, even though the resume information wasn't gathered and organized into the system, the document will still be saved under Talent > Profile Quicklink > Documents. The resume will display a "(failed)" label.
The Parse button becomes available for an uploaded document that has not yet been parsed or was temporarily unable to parse. Mouse-over the Documents area in Talent > Profile to reveal the Parse button.
Replacing Existing Information during a Parse
If a new resume is added in Avionté Web Platform while another already exists, the newly parsed information will replace all of the Talent's existing resume information except for the Talent's name and email address.
Note: Any skill codes existing in the core application's Employee record will not be removed during an Avionté Web Platform Talent parse.
A warning message displays when any parse request is made.
If the name on the replacement resume does not match the name in the Talent's record, a warning message explains that the Talent's name and email address will not be replaced during the parse.
The resume parser must detect a first name, last name and e-mail address when parsing the resume. If one of these fields is not detected, then an error message will display.
Note: There are certain values that are not considered for a first name, last name and contact method. Values which could be considered a common country, county, town or occupations are not extracted as names. This is to prevent incorrectly extracting the previous mentioned values. On those occasions, when we parse the document, the parse engine would look for a suitable alternative. If a first name, last name or e-mail address is not found, the resume parse will fail.
Manual entry allows a recruiter to quickly capture basic information (name, address, etc.) for a talent card if a resume is unavailable. Additional information may be added to the talent card later. Use of the resume parse functionality is recommended over manual entry.
- Select Manual entry from the top of the wizard.
- Enter the talent's first name in the First name field.
- Enter the talent's last name in the Last name field.
- Select a contact method from the Contact method drop-down menu. Once a contact method is chosen, the subsequent field will become available.
- Enter the details for the contact method in the (email address, phone number, etc..) field.
- A clickable notification will display allowing the recruiter to go straight into the detailed profile of the talent where more details can be added.
Add a Company
A new company (referred to as "Customer" in the Core application) can be created in the Company section of the Recruiter module. Once a company is created in the Avionté Web Platform, its data is bridged over to the Customer section of the Core application.
Data can also be edited in the Company section including location information, contact addresses, and hierarchy of departments within the company.
For more details about adding a company in the Avionté Web Platform, visit the Add a Company article.
Set up a Job Board
Though the job board has its own module, it is actually created in the Recruiter module in the Admin section. The Admin Job boards configuration page contains properties controlling the functionality and display of Avionté Web Platform job boards. Each Job board has a Job board card in the Avionté Web Platform Admin section. Saving a new card will create a new board, and removing a card will delete a job board. This article outlines the properties available for customization using the Job boards section.
The Properties tab provides a configuration interface that lets admin users define general elements of the job board including names, URLs, and logos.
|Property Name||Description||Additional Information|
Add a Job Board icon.
Once the icon is clicked, new fields (Job board title, Board's URL address, etc.) will display allowing the user to define a new job board. Multiple job boards will display in a vertical, collapsible/expandable format.
A new job board may not be created if another board is already being created and has not yet been saved.

Using Avionté Web Platform - Job Board Module
Though the job board has its own module, it is actually created in the Recruiter module in the Admin section (described above). Avionté Web Platform's Job Board provides a convenient, comprehensive view of all jobs that are currently available to job seekers.
The short video below walks through the fundamental setup and use of the job board.
Job Seekers can quickly access information about the job's title, location, and a brief description of the position. They can also apply directly from the main screen.
Once a job has been posted, job seekers will be able to view and submit an application through the Talent module. The information about a job posting will appear to the public on a job board in this format:
Job seekers can use the Apply Now link to quickly apply for a specific job. Once an applicant clicks Apply Now, they enter into the Talent module where they're prompted for information such as name, email address, and resume.
Using Avionté Web Platform - Talent Module
The Talent Module is accessed by applying to a job on the job board. Though parts of Avionté Web Platform are stylized in the Recruiter module's Admin section, the actual functionality in Avionté Web Platform - including the application steps in the Talent Module - cannot be changed.
The short video below walks through the fundamental setup and use of the Talent Module.
Application Process Video
To apply for a job posting, an applicant clicks Apply now from a job board.
Creation of an account with login credentials is not required to apply for a job, however, a candidate must provide contact information including first name, last name, and an email address. When providing contact information, the candidate does have the option to be "remembered" (cookies) by the browser for a later return. A resume is not required to apply for a position.
In the simplified application process, the candidate applies to a particular job posting rather than making themselves generally available for hire.
Branding and color scheme of the applicant site follow the configuration of the job board that the job seeker is applying from.
Step 1 Personal information
Personal information collects a candidate's name and contact methods and offers the option to be remembered by the application when returning.
The applicant’s first name.
|Middle name||The applicant’s middle name.|
|*Last name||The applicant’s last name.|
|*Email address||The applicant must enter a valid email address (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org).|
|Phone number||The applicant’s phone number (e.g., 4015550195, 401-555-0195, (401) 555-0195, or 1-401-555-0195).|
If checked, the system will remember the applicant's personal information for subsequent applications from this device.
If the required first name, last name, and email are completed, the applicant may click Next to proceed to the “Upload resume” page.
Step 2 Upload resume
The applicant may upload a resume (optional). Applicants can browse for the file, or simply drag and drop it into the resume area. Applicants can also copy and paste resume text into the resume area. If the applicant doesn’t want to upload a resume, the applicant can click Skip & submit application to proceed to the final acknowledgement page.
Accepted file types (up to 30MB)
Once the resume is uploaded, the file name appears in the resume area next to an icon. The resume can be removed by clicking the icon.
An applicant may not upload two files for a single job application. To use a second file in place of an initial upload, click to remove the first file, then upload the new file.
Step 3 Finish
On the Finish page, a message displays stating, “Thank you for applying! Your application has been received. You will be contacted soon!” This text can be edited in the Avionté Web Platform Admin tab.
The Continue job search button directs an applicant back to the job board from which they came.
The Exit button directs an applicant to the default address entered in the required Avionté Web Platform Admin tab.
Visit the Admin - Job Boards article for details about the default address.
