Advanced Search

The advanced search within PCRecruiter will allow you to find records through different means that can’t be performed in a basic search. Below we will discuss these different options.
When you click on the binoculars above your basic search it will take you to the advanced search. Beneath the Search Params section you will see a row of dropdown options. The first dropdown will allow you to select and search different fields/record types:

  • Predefined Fields – This is the default option and will allow you search all of the standard fields that everyone is familiar with such as Last Name, Company Name and Title
  • Custom Fields – This option will toggle over to the fields that are created by users and some that are already in every PCRecruiter user’s database. These options will vary between databases but all will have custom phone number and email fields.
  • History Fields – This option will allow you to search the various history fields when performing an advanced name search only. These fields include a person’s references, education, military, licenses and work history
  • Zipcode Radius – This option will allow you to search the radius around a specific city/zipcode. *Note: This does not search a record’s city and state but only the zipcode field populated on the record. To do a zipcode radius search select this option from the dropdown and click the small radius button to the right of the next box.
    • Now type in a zipcode or toggle the selector over to City if you do not know the zipcode you are searching. Change the radius distance to the right if you wish (the default is 20 and the maximum distance that can be searched is 100 miles). Click the Search button to the right to display all the zipcodes that fall into your radius where you can deselect some if you wish or click the ‘Accept Selected Items and Continue’ to add it to your search.
    • Now when you run the search in the results you will now notice beside the City or City/State field that you will see the distance from the epicenter of your zipcode radius search in parenthesis.
  • Name Rollup – Selecting this option will allow you to perform an advanced search using an already created name rollup list. After selecting it click the next dropdown on the right to either filter your advanced search strictly from records in your rollup list or avoiding all records on it by choosing ‘On List’ or ‘Not on List’. Click the dropdown to the right of the next box to select your rollup you wish to filter from. Now that rollup will be added to your advanced search.
  • Company Rollup – This option will allow you to filter your advanced search using a rollup of company records
  • Position Rollup (Contacts) – Selecting this option will allow you filter your advanced search by a rollup of positions that have contacts attached to them
  • Position Rollups (Interviews) – This option will allow you to filter your advanced search by a rollup of positions with candidates attached to those position pipelines
