Permissions: Site Admin who can edit another user's advanced permissions

Product tier: Available to all subscription tiers

Permission policies are a set of permissions for all users in your Greenhouse Recruiting account. By defining permission policies, you can automate the default settings for any new users and avoid changing permissions on a user-by-user basis. On this page, you can also define specific permission policies for a subset of users, such as job admins, coordinators and interviewers. 

Note: Only organizations with an Advanced or Expert subscription can customize and create new Job Admin levels. Organizations with an Essential subscription cannot edit Job Admin levels. 

Configure a permissions policy

Click the Configure icon Configured_Icon.png in the top-right corner and choose Permissions Policies from the left side of the page.

Select the checkboxes for each permission to assign it to the associated group.

Note: Organizations with an Essential subscription will not see an option for See and manage Job Admin levels because the Essential subscription tier does not include Custom Job Admin levels.
