Restrict job creation to template jobs for all Job Admins

Permissions: Site Admin who can edit another user's advanced permissions

Product tier: Available for all subscription tiers

A template job is a template that includes the key components for most of the jobs your organization will open. Users with the appropriate permissions to create a new job can use this template as a starting point when creating a new job. Alternatively, if your organization wants to exert more control over the jobs your users can create, you can restrict new job creation to only those based on template jobs.

This article will cover how to restrict users with Job Admin level permissions so that they can only create new jobs based on template jobs. 

Note: To create new jobs based only on templates, users with Job Admin level permissions will still need the user-specific permission Can create new jobs and request job approvals

Go to the Permissions Policies page. (Configure icon Configure-icon.pngPermission Policies)

Navigate to the Job Admins section and uncheck the box inline with Allow Job Admins to create or copy non-template jobs during job creation.


Note: By default, this box is checked so Job Admins who can create new jobs can create non-template jobs.

Job Admins who can create new jobs can now only create new jobs that are based on template jobs where you have given them at least Job Admin level permissions. 

Users will be directed to the Copy an Existing Job page when they try to create a new job. The Copy an Existing Job page will be filtered to show jobs marked as a template only.

Note: It is important to remember that you will still need to assign Job Admin level access to users for template jobs. By doing this, Greenhouse Recruiting can accurately show the templates a user can access during the job creation process
