Its JUST a platform for your RESUME that you can make, update or delete it but it wont be sent to shatchanim, for that you have to send them the link of this doc/resume yourself?

Someone said they have future plans where the singles will be able to choose to have it seen by Shadchanim or something like that

Amazing!

Thank you!

I have been using ShidduchDoc for the past few months as an early beta user and I really appreciate it so much!

Has completely removed the PRESSURE for “releasing” updated PDF pictures or resume edits to my resume.

BIG YESHER KOACH!
Thank you ShidduchDoc Team!

Correct. Its just a tool assist in the creation of an aesthetically pleasing resume and one that thecreator is in full control of even after they’ve shared it. There is no database that it is viewable on. To see a resume, someone needs to send it to you.

Going to be using this!
April 4, 2024 10:18 pm

Yes! This is so needed and so exciting!!!🙌🙌

Exciting
April 4, 2024 10:18 pm

Really going to change the shidduch system for the positive!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

This app is the new hype and very much needed. Thanks! Can’t wait for more people to get on this :))

It’s amazing
April 4, 2024 10:21 pm

I use shidduch doc and it’s the best thing I ever did! I feel like I actually have control of what is being sent around and any updates I make I know no one has my old info anymore

Very nice!
April 4, 2024 10:22 pm

Honestly this solves a lot of issues I’ve been having lately with outdated resumes. (specifically old references)

I made my resume using shiduch doc and it was the actual best choice ever! After I made my resume I was able to still change my photo ( and if I wanted to my references!). When I was dating I locked my resume, and once I got engaged I deleted it!

Finally!
April 4, 2024 10:23 pm

Such a simple concept, super necessary. What took so long for them to come up with a smart pdf like this.

This is great. The resume situation needed to change. Enough with being stuck with references that need to be changed, pictures that need to be updated, resumes that out no longer needed. Shkoiach our community really needed something like this!

Thank you
April 4, 2024 10:27 pm

This is so incredible! Love when people take initiative and help smoothen the shidduch process

Incredible
April 4, 2024 10:35 pm

Great App Support for Hebrew please

Love it!

Love this idea! No more need to keep resending my resume to everyone every time I update it!

Great idea!
April 5, 2024 9:28 am

This looks wonderful – is this just a chessed or is there some way they make money (or even just cover the web/app development costs)? It says on the website that it’s free forever to use.

They promised to never monetize it. If costs exceed what the original donors are willing to cover they will fundraise or ask users to for voluntary donations to cover upkeep costs.

Google Docs

Just wondering why you can’t just send a link to a Google Docs? You can update as needed, lock it, and delete it. Would accomplish the exact same thing as this app.

It’s similar but not quite the same. You wouldn’t have the the template and design. It also isn’t optimized for Whatsapp preview and you couldn’t just search names on Whatsapp to find the resumes. Lastly, numbers wouldn’t be clickable to call references on your phone. That sounds small but it really does make a difference.

Genius
April 5, 2024 9:51 am

Thank you for creating this!

Love this
April 5, 2024 9:59 am

Great job to whoever put this together

Very impressive
April 5, 2024 3:24 pm

I’m newly married but I remember how annoying resumes were. Great job who ever put this together

👏👏👏👏

where is all the info stored? Who has it? Is it google?

Resume Storage

The info is stored using AWS (Amazon servers). They are very secure and only accessible by the account holder.

couple questions
April 7, 2024 11:40 am

WhatsApp Searchability: Save time searching through countless PDFs. Just type the name in your Whatsapp search bar to find their ShidduchDoc.

what does this mean? What is whatsapp searchability??

User Control: Edit or delete your ShidduchDoc at any time, and everyone with access to your doc will see the updates in real time.

So does all info get completely deleted permanently then?

WhatsApp search-ability:
Just like you can search WhatsApp for a particular message you’ve received. You can also type in the name of a resume sent to you and it will come up just like a regular message you’ve received.

User Control:
Yes, if you delete a resume it will delete it by anyone you have sent it too. Permanently.

if someone doesn't have whatsapp

Bestttt idea
April 7, 2024 12:58 pm

This is so smart!! Love when people care to improve and innovate <3

Don't understand
April 8, 2024 4:50 pm

Can’t someone just screenshot a resume and share it around?

Next step
April 9, 2024 12:28 pm

Next step is to abolish resumes altogether. Amen.
