Close openings on job with two-stage approval process


If your team decides later to close an opening for whatever reason (for example, hire made, hiring freeze, and so on), you can control these settings from the job's Job Info page.

In Greenhouse Recruiting, the process to close openings on an existing job depends on that job's approval process. In this article, we will cover how to close openings on a job with a configured two-stage job approval process


Closing openings on a job must be performed on the job's Approvals page. Click All Jobs from the navigation bar and select the job from the subsequent list.


Click Approvals and select Edit Job & Openings.


From the subsequent page, navigate to the Openings panel and select a specific opening from the left panel.


The details for the selected opening will populate in the right panel. Change the status of the opening by selecting Closed from the Status dropdown menu.


Once the Status for the opening is Closed, you can click the Close Date dropdown menu and use the subsequent calendar to select a new close date for the opening. 


Note: If you manually change an opening's open or close dates, you should ensure that the job open and close dates (under Job Setup > Job Info) are also changed to match. This will ensure your reports don't show disparate data.

Additionally, click the Select Reason dropdown menu and select a close reason for the opening from the populated list.

Click Save when finished.
