System Default Fields vs. Custom Fields

For your convenience, Greenhouse Recruiting pre-populates certain default fields for your jobs, candidates, and offers. Before creating a custom field, make sure that the field does not already exist as one of Greenhouse Recruiting's pre-populated defaults.

In this article, we cover what default fields are available to you and how you can customize additional fields for Jobs, Candidates, and Offers. Additionally, we provide resources for our Enterprise customers at the end of this article for those interested in customizing application fields

 

Job Fields

By default, Greenhouse pre-populates the following job fields: 

  • Internal Job Name
  • External Job Name (as seen on job board)
  • Department

  • Number of Openings
