A new settings option in your profile allows you to tell Ferretly that the background search is for a use/case that is not governed by FCRA limitations. Examples include hiring outside of the United States or the background search is for investigative purposes only. When this option is unchecked, Ferretly will search up to 10 years of social media history and exclude the FCRA page on the background report.
You can now assign a subject to another user in your organization or a Ferretly Analyst (if you purchased Analyst Assistance). The assigned user will be notified via email.
Ferretly now includes the ability to continuously screen your candidates or employees' social media posts. You choose the frequency of the screening and notifications from daily, weekly, monthly, semi-annual and annually and Ferretly does the rest. If any posts are flagged you will be sent a notification by email.
With a Professional or Enterprise plan you now have the ability to import a list of subjects from a CSV or Microsoft Excel file. You can map your columns to subject properties including the social media profiles.
Ferretly now analyzes LinkedIn profiles including original posts, likes, and comments.
Invite other users to join your organization in Ferretly. Share subjects, access all reports, and allows you to centralize the screening process.
