This new solution enables hiring managers to complete their main recruitment activities in a native app on a tablet or a phone that runs on iOS or Android

Hiring managers can:

  • Approve or reject job requisitions
  • Search for active requisitions and candidates
  • Review candidate applications including prescreening results
  • Move the application to the next step or reject the application
  • Complete evaluation questionnaires during or after the interview to provide a structured feedback
  • Compare up to three candidates
  • Review all feedback provided about finalists and select the ones to whom they want to hire
  • Approve or reject offers before they are extended to candidates

 

The benefits to your organization are to:

  • Increase the quality of recruitment by making more informed decisions about the candidates

Exclamation Triangle.pngReminder:  Taleo Transition to SHA-2


Oracle Taleo is deprecating the use of the SHA-1 hashing function. As part of this project, the Oracle Taleo zone certificate will be upgraded to SHA-2, replacing the current SHA-1 certificate. Accordingly, the TCC client must be updated to utilize a SHA-2 certificate.


Take Action:

The SHA-2 compatible TCC version has been released. It is available for download from Oracle e-Delivery site. Customers must download and install no later than September 30, 2016. We have created a guide for customers who are using Taleo Connect Client (TCC) to integrate with their instance of Oracle Taleo Enterprise Edition Cloud Service. Please navigate to the Customer Connect “Taleo Transition to SHA-2” here for the guide with TCC migration requirement and next steps.

Triangle Alert Yellow.jpgNotification Reminder:  End-of-Life for Legacy Oracle Taleo Onboarding Cloud Service December 31, 2016 which has been replaced by the new Oracle Taleo Onboarding Cloud Service (Transitions). Maintenance for Legacy Oracle Taleo Onboarding Cloud Service solution ended December 31, 2015.  This means that no more enhancement or defect fixes will be made.


The Legacy Taleo Onboarding Cloud Service solution reaches End-of-Life as of December 31, 2016.  Customers will no longer be able to access the legacy Onboarding application, nor the New Hire Portal, nor any associated process of task data.  Please note that Legacy Taleo Onboarding Cloud Service customers were notified via GCN-00129 sent in April 2015, GCN-00154 sent in September 2015 and GCN-00198 in February 2016.

Notification Reminder:  Taleo Transition to SHA-2


Oracle plans to support SHA-2 in TEE 15A.8 and above and Sourcing 15A.5 and above.  All customers will be moved to TEE 15A.8 or higher and Sourcing 15A.5 or higher (for those who utilize Sourcing) during 2016 in order to support SHA-2.  Related Cloud services such as Reporting, Scheduling Center, Assessment, and Passport Partner solutions will also be transitioned to SHA-2.  After all Taleo services are on SHA-2 compatible releases, they will be switched to IP servers that utilize SHA-2 certificates rather than SHA-1, at which point Taleo Enterprise will be using SHA-2 authentication.  Please note that customers were notified via GCN-00195 sent February 5, 2016.

 

Take Action

Please navigate to the Customer Connect “Taleo Transition to SHA-2” here for next steps details, timeline and common questions.


If you have questions regarding TEE SHA-2 transition you may log a Service Request via My Oracle Support.
