Conga ActionGrid

Overall, I enjoy using Conga ActionGrid. It helps us store our large candidate pool, while continuously adding more candidates every day. With a quick search we are able to find these candidates and then match them to a job that they might be a good fit for. After we create a packet for them to present to hiring managers

Pros

  • Allows recruiters to service candidates within a radius of a desired city/location
  • Allows recruiters to see multiple fields/information on multiple candidates at once
  • Allows for easier ranking/sorting by salary, years of experience, etc

  • It's a great place to hide details but have them accessible with a click.
  • There is so much visual feedback possible with the use of intelligent icons (can click on icons to show project on a task), conditional formatting, image insertion, relationship lines, tags
  • The use of filters permits seeing various aspects of your map (e.g. show only the portion of a map for a particular resource, or a particular ranking, or conditional color).
  • Ability to add properties to the map topics, adds to the calculating ability.
  • Automatic task rollup means that progress at lower levels in tasks can roll up to higher level progress icons. Same with calculations rolling up to higher levels.
  • Full project development capabilities, with task defined, resources and appropirate visual feedback. Gantt chart etc.

Cons

  • The speed of ActionGrid can be very slow when reviewing a large pool of results
Peggy Tambouridis profile photo
  • The flowchart capabilities are good but rather basic in terms of availability of flowchart shapes. Swim Lane Diagrams are available but adjusting the number of lanes takes more work than it should.
  • There's a program language available (looks kind of like VBA) but there isn't a getting started manual to describe it. There is a user who is thinking of developing a course and and some pre-course download material but at this point nothing formal for explaining the capabilities of the integrated scripting language.
  • Can't say anything else negative because I'd need to play more with the features I haven't yet used to comment.

One of the best software programs ever. Always my go-to program for most things.

Alternatives Considered

I've only used Salesforce before and am now using Conga ActionGrid. Although Salesforce is great, it is only used to log candidate information and then log actions that have been performed. With Conga ActionGrid, we are able to log more specific details about candidates, activities and follow up items. Conga ActionGrid provides more tools that would benefit many departments

At the time, 1997 there wasn't much out there. I had just learned of Mindmapping techniques from a partner of the consulting firm that I worked for. When I saw there was a digital version of mindmapping, I jumped on the opportunity. I even went to get certified in the product back in version 5 because I believe so strongly in it.

Return on Investment

  • It has benefited us positively, as I stated earlier- it allows us to filter down results of 65,000+ candidates to a search of 1-100 candidates.

  • Increased productivity in meetings (for both the presenter and the audience).
  • Increased solutions in brainstorming sessions due to the visual associative properties of the product.
  • Personal organization in areas of note taking, to do lists, project management, etc.
  • Great for students, used this extensively while going for my masters degree for papers and Capstone.
