Optimal Taleo Settings

Taleo is used for many organisations as its tool for managing job applications. These settings are Internet Explorer recommended settings for displaying Taleo with no problems.

Magnification

The magnification level of your Internet browser must be set to 100%.

Using a setting other than 100% might produce less than optimal results depending on the Taleo product you are

using and the action you are performing. For this reason, 100% is the only recommended magnification level.

Optimizing Cache Settings

accessing the file directly from your computer’s hard drive rather than gathering it from the Internet, thereby

increasing overall performance.

version of stored pages option.

cache size higher than 500 MB might actually reduce performance.
