Problem 1: The Greenhouse Export button isn't showing up
Export button not showing up for ALL emails:
Check to see if you successfully added the extension.
If you've successfully added the extension, you'll see the Greenhouse icon appear in the URL bar of your browser. If the Greenhouse icon does not appear in your browser, the extension was not successfully installed. Check out the steps to install here.
Export button not showing up for SOME emails:
Most likely, the Gmail parser failed to read the email.
There are many different formats of emails. The library used to read these emails and parse them isn't always reliable, so if it fails to parse, the icon will not show up. In these cases, please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will update the Gmail parsing tool to include that particular case.
If you're familiar with using the Chrome Developer Console, open it to take a screenshot of the error, which will appear in red. Please forward the screenshot to email@example.com
The person on the email is not a valid candidate
The Greenhouse icon will only display on emails from Candidates or Prospects that already exist in Greenhouse.
Problem 2: The mail is not exporting to Greenhouse
Mail is not exporting for SOME emails
An error happened trying to process the email
Please take a screenshot of the email, and forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mail is not exporting for ALL emails
You have not successfully authorized the extension
Until you've successfully authorized the extension, the Greenhouse icon will appear within all of your email messages. To authorize the extension, open any message from a candidate in your inbox, and click the Greenhouse icon that displays within the message (on the right side).
The access token is invalid or has expired
Though unlikely, it's possible that the access token is invalid or has expired. Take the following steps:
- Click the Greenhouse icon in the address bar, then click "Logout"
- Once logged out, click the icon again to log back in
If that doesn't resolve the issue, try uninstalling and then reinstalling the extension.
