LinkedIn Easy Apply is an integration between LinkedIn and Greenhouse Recruiting that allows candidates to apply directly through LinkedIn without the additional step of navigating to your company's careers page. To enable this feature, you will need to provide LinkedIn with your Job Board URL Token, a Job Board API Key, and a job board tracking link. 

Configure User Setup Permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting

In order to enable the LinkedIn Easy Apply integration, you will need the developer permission Can manage Job Board related API Credentials.

Contact a Greenhouse Recruiting user in your organization with Site Admin level permissions with the additional user-specific permission Can edit another user's advanced permissions to apply the job board API credential management permission to your account. 

To update a user's permission, have a Site Admin with the Can edit another user's advanced permissions role navigate to the user's profile (Configure Icon_-_Configure.png > Users > select a user).

Once you're on the user's profile, scroll to the Developer Permissions section and choose the Can manage Job Board related API Credentials box.

This will generate the Job Board API Key LinkedIn needs to post applications into Greenhouse Recruiting without having candidates redirect to your careers page.

Copy and save the API key to provide to LinkedIn at a later step.

Generate Job Board Tracking Link

To ensure candidates who apply to your jobs using LinkedIn Easy Apply are attributed to the correct source, you will need to create a job board tracking link to provide to LinkedIn. If your team does not create a job board tracking link and provide it to LinkedIn, candidates who apply via LinkedIn Easy Apply will be added to Greenhouse Recruiting with a source of Jobs page on your website.

Navigate to the job board and select the Ellipses Icon_-_White_Ellipses.png icon next to the correct board. (Configure icon > Job Boards & Posts > Ellipses icon)

Click Tracking Link.

Note: These values will be associated with every candidate who applies with LinkedIn Easy Apply as the referrer and source. If you prefer not to associate a referrer name with these candidates, leave the Who gets credit dropdown blank.
