Article Summary

Abstract

Job settings affect the processes around creating job requisitions, including the generation of requisition numbers, job aging, and viewing candidates who apply for open positions.

Introduction

If a client uses location management or candidate pooling, those settings are also in job settings.

You use Job Settings on the Manage System Settings screen to manage job settings. You use the Platform tab to specify job settings that apply to the platform: Enable Location Management. You use the Onboard tab to specify Job Requisition Settings for Onboard. IMPORTANT: The selections you make control which configuration screens display.

Location Management

Location management settings provide location support to accommodate clients with a retail structure. Location support enables users to view only the jobs and applicants for the locations with which they are associated. Locations are maintained as dictionary values. Administrators can associate specific locations with users as they are entered into the system.

How to Access the Screen

  1. Display the System Configuration: Manage System Settingsscreen.

  2. In the list pane, select Job Settings. The Job Settings screen displays.
