Subscriptions - only tracks last edit to entity for quick updates

I just noticed that subscriptions only tracks the last edit to an entity record within a certain time period.

For example, if I edit the firstName of a candidate and save, then soon (within 1 minute) edit the lastName of a candidate and save, ONLY the history of the lastName edit is returned as part of the subscription. The history of the firstName is NOT included in the subscription.

I use automation to update some field every 15 minutes and those are tracked by a subscription, but my experiment with quick updates was not completely tracked.

Beware if you're using the subscriptions to trigger anything on a field update. There's a chance you might miss something.

Hi Jim,

This is Dan again with Bullhorn Support.

This is correct. The subscription generally used to track that there WAS an update to the record, not necessarily everything that has been changed. In most implementations, the existence of an event on a record will trigger the integration to just grab the entire record.

Warm regards,
Dan

I see this post is almost 3 years old. Do the subscriptions still behave in this way? That would be a big issue for us if it does. Thanks!
