Martide's End of 2019 Updates & Upgrades

Eve Jones

While most of us spent the latter end of 2019 winding down for Christmas and/or New Year, as per usual the Martide Development Team were still hard at work creating new functions and features and putting any bugs to bed before they took a well earned rest!

So if you’ve been wondering what the team got up to at the end of last year, wonder no more. Here’s a rundown of just some of the great new features they built, fixed, tweaked or added to the platform during October and November.

Changelog updates: new features and amendments in October

  • Employers and manning agents are now sent an alert if they try to add the same seafarer to more than one job vacancy
  • We added a vessel’s flag information into the PDF resume/CV for seafarers
  • We built a basic integration for the ATPI travel agency
  • We added the vessel’s flag to the Recruitment Page
  • Employers and manning agents now have the ability to print out the questions and responses for any given interview
  • Users now have the ability to rotate attachments
  • We added Rank, Gender, Airport and Phone Number to Data Templates

And this is what the team were working on and upgraded the platform with during November.

Changelog updates: new features and amendments in November

  • We’ve updated the Company Directory on the website to include more information about the employers and manning agents that we work for and with
  • We’ve made it possible for documents to not have to have a specified end date
  • We’ve allowed employers and manning agents to add a seafarer to multiple candidate pools
  • The email notifications received by manning agents now show the relevant rank and vessel name in the headline/title
  • We changed the name of “Readiness Date” to “Availability Date” to make it clearer when a candidate is available to start

That’s just a small sample of everything the team got up to as 2019 drew to a close. As usual they were busy working away behind the scenes!
