Say Hello to Search Party’s Brand New Inbox

Search Party is on a mission to take the work out of recruitment. What better way to help our customers get there than by improving the way that employers and recruiters collaborate? Our newest update to Search Party Marketplace includes a huge upgrade to how users communicate in our recruitment platform. Messaging has not only gotten easier, but users will also get more transparency into the roles they’re working on. That way you can manage each stage of the hiring process more efficiently, whether you’re an employer or recruiter.

Your New Inbox


You’ll notice improvements to messaging as soon as you log in to Search Party and click on the inbox icon in the top navigation bar. The new layout lets you quickly scan through all the message threads you currently have in progress, grouped by the job (or jobs) you’re working on. Each item in your inbox will clearly identify who the latest message is from and how many new messages are in the thread. You’ll see a preview of the latest message or a milestone in the job (interview accepted, offer given, etc.), if that’s the latest activity. You’ll be able to filter everything in your inbox by person, job or keywords (if you’re looking for something specific).

Integrated Hiring Milestones

We’ve redesigned individual messages to feel more like conversation threads, where for each active role, you can view not only conversations with the recruiter or employer, but your entire relationship and interaction history. Any actions (proposing candidates, scheduling interviews, accepting terms) will also appear in the same thread, making it easy for you to see the whole picture, in chronological order.

Notification Updates In Your Email

Whether you’re a recruiter or an employer, you can now receive regular snapshots of Search Party activity straight to your email inbox. These emails will summarise any progression that has happened on the jobs you’re working on within the platform, including messages, notifications and events. We’ve consolidated all activity into one neat digest. You change the frequency of this snapshot to instant, hourly, daily or weekly.

Respond From Anywhere

When you receive notification digests in your regular email inbox, you can respond just by replying to that email. There’s no need to log in to Search Party. You can reply to messages, accept terms and review candidates from the email account you used to sign up, and these actions will be recorded against the correct job in the platform.
