Permissions: Job Admin and above, who can access CRM

Product tier: Available to Expert subscription tier

If your organization is planning to post a prospect post to an external job board, or will be marketing the prospect post in some other way, you'll want to create unique URLs or tracking links to the online prospect post application so that your organization can track where the prospects came from.

Once a prospect post is made live, your organization can generate unique tracking links to track the prospect's source.

To generate a tracking link for a prospect post, click the Ellipsis icon Icon_-_Ellipses.png on the navigation bar and select CRM from the drop-down menu.


Click Configure CRM from the CRM page.


Navigate to the Prospect Posts panel, and click the Ellipsis icon Icon_-_Ellipses.png beside the specific prospect post from which you want to track applicants.

Select Tracking Link from the dropdown menu.


Use the subsequent dialog box to fill in the fields for Who gets credit and the Source. Greenhouse Recruiting provides you with a default list of sources to choose from.

Note: In addition to Greenhouse Recruiting's default sources, you can create your own custom sources. Learn more here. You will only need to create a custom source once. Once created, the custom source will be available for any job or prospect post.

After credit and source has been assigned, click Create Link to generate your tracking link.


Copy the tracking link. Whatever marketing you may be doing, provide the tracking link to show prospects where they need to click to apply.


Example: If you're sourcing prospects from LinkedIn, you will want to paste your tracking link in the Direct applicants to an external site to apply field on your LinkedIn paid ad page:
