The Development Process
Before we could start developing the mass apply template, our product managers had to create design and engineering requirements for the project. Then they evaluated the requirements with AI development and testing teams to make sure they were clear and feasible. Finally, they scheduled the project work to take place in the next development cycle.
As part of the requirements and design process, we create screen mockups to be sure the feature is easy to use and solves the problem. This is the actual screen mockup for the mass apply templates feature.
Development and Testing
Once our product managers finished the requirements, our quality assurance team created a test plan based on the requirements criteria and evaluated the new feature against that plan. Our QA team also ran what's called a regression test, which tested all functionality in Bullhorn Web to make sure it would continue to work correctly once the new mass apply templates feature was added.

After our QA team thoroughly tested the mass apply templates feature and gave the development team the go-ahead to release it to Bullhorn Web, we let customers know about the new feature by announcing it in our newsletter, adding it to our website, and demonstrating it during a webinar.
How to Use the Mass Apply Templates Feature
Here's a quick rundown of how to use the new feature.
Choose a Bullhorn remote monitor with a configuration template that you want to apply to multiple units. Then navigate to the admin page for that unit, select "Template" and then select "Create Template."
Here's what you should see after navigating to the admin page for the unit with a template you want to mass apply, selecting "Template" and then selecting "Create Template." Don't forget to give the template a descriptive name so you can find it later!
When you're ready to apply the template:
- Navigate to the All Units page
- Select the units you'd like to configure using the template
- Click on the Template Button
- Select the template you just created or a previously-created template you'd like to apply
- Click Apply!
Step 2: Select your units and apply the configuration template.
