applicant tracking system bug fix

Newton leads the applicant tracking system industry in new releases and we’re at it again.

Just a month and a half into 2016 and we’re excited to announce another set of enhancements to our leading applicant tracking system that’s designed specifically for small and medium-sized employers.

In case you missed it, our first release of 2016 was Newton Mobile Apply, a feature that’s turned out to be one of the most popular releases in Newton history.


While we’re gearing up for some exciting big new features focused on offer letters, email, search and more, this release is focused on making Newton run better. With applicant tracking systems you only get one chance to make a great first impression on candidates, hiring managers and executives.  Having been recruiters, we know.

For this second release, our engineering team made 300+ enhancements to Newton. Some of the areas that were improved in this release are –

feature-email-interview-scheduling Interview scheduling capabilities

Scheduling interviews is time consuming. With Newton, you’ll have an integrated scheduling assistant that works with both Outlook and Gmail. Newton helps you find times that your team is free and will even write all of those meeting invitations for you. We’re always making improvements to this functionality because we know how much time a good scheduling tool will save you.

feature-email-career-sites Candidate acknowledgement templates & Candidate tagging

Acknowledging every applicant is a fundamental “must have” of any applicant tracking system. We’ve taken this feature to the next level by allowing employers to further customize “thank you for applying” messages. And, speaking or applicants applying, we’ve also expanded our tagging taxonomy in this latest release to empower employers to better categorize applicants based on referral source.

feature-email-company-settings Flexible Company settings

Having been recruiters, we realize that every employer has slightly different recruiting processes. To ensure that Newton is simple, smart, safe and flexible, we’ve added even more configurability options to the administrative area of Newton. Best of all, users can adjust these settings on their own or contact our support team for fast, free platinum-level support anytime time.


Admin and Standard Users can expect to see of these new features upon logging in. These enhancements will not disrupt any workflows and no changes are required from you or your team. For questions, please contact Newton’s support team at
