Where do I go to request approval to open a job and start recruiting?

When the "Approvals to start recruiting" workflow is configured, you will automatically be taken to the Approvals tab upon completing the 4 steps to add a new job.  On the Approvals tab, you need to click the Request Approval button.  Remember that the job will remain in Draft status until the request has been approved.

This is also how it would appear if the job is still pending request for approvals.

    How can I have our team receive a notification when a job request is approved. Or, at least the hiring manager.

    Hi Jazmyn,

    Thanks for reaching out! Currently, the only person who will be notified when a job is opened will be the person who requested it. That person would then be responsible for letting the rest of the team know about the position. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Thank you. What if the requester makes me the "hiring manager" for the role? Will I then receive an alert when the role is live?

    Hey Jazmyn,

    No, that would not send an alert your way. Only the one who requested the approvals in the first place will receive the alert.

    Let me know if you have any questions about this!

    Greetings. We want to give the hiring manager specific instructions (i.e. 8 static questions to answer) about the job when requesting approval. What is the best way to do this? Presumably the answer to these 8 questions can be incorporated into a note.

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks for writing in!

    On the job's approval tab, you can 'Leave a Note'. This would be a great place for approval notes!

    Hope this helps!
