What does Follow Job do?

Following jobs allow admins to create a list of positions that can be easily filtered on the All Jobs dashboard.

Please Note: If you want to set up specific email alerts about a position, check out the Configure->Email Notifications page.

To get started, go to the All Jobs Dashboard, hover over the job you want to follow, and click + Follow Job


You can then use the Filter button and check the box "Show only jobs I'm following"

    Is it possible to make someone else follow a job if you're a Site Admin / have sufficient permissions?

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for reaching out! No, only a specific user can opt into following a job. Since this feature is only useful on the All Jobs Dashboard and Reports filters, a user will need to be able to access the job themselves to follow it.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Can you set up e-mail notifications for all roles by default?

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for writing in!

    Currently notifications cannot be configured across all roles by default, but I'd be happy to take this suggestion to our team as we look into improving this feature!

    In the meantime, I would recommend either:

    1) Adding the Notifications section to the job setup flow so this can be done during job creation (this can be done under Configure > Custom Options > Configure Job Setup Flow).  If a job is copied from another job that already has notifications set up, these would carry over to the new job.


    2) Setting up notifications for each job manually under Configure > Notifications

    If you'd like any further clarification, feel free to reach out to us at support@greenhouse.io!
