Hook to update Candidate Custom Fields

Post by otesdev »

I'm wondering if there is a way to define a hook to update the custom fields of a candidate when they're viewed in the Bullhorn portal (particularly from the candidate list)? What would really be useful is to input a URL that the field would call out to with its own corp/candidate ID to fetch the value but I'm not sure if this exists in your system.

Currently I am updating the custom fields when the bullhorn user visits my custom tab, but if they don't keep coming back to the custom tab, the custom field data that I want to provide them becomes out of date and incorrect.

I'm wondering if your system has this functionality or will I need to store data about the candidate (id) in my system so I can push out updates from my system when the value changes?

I'm attaching a screenshot showing the context where I'd like to be able to call out and have the fields updated.

Please let me know if you have any other suggestions for how people have solved similar issues.
