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

Product tier: Available for Advanced and Expert subscription tiers

Greenhouse Recruiting allows your organization to edit the user-specific permissions for multiple users at the same time using the bulk action feature. With the bulk action feature, you can edit individual user-specific permissions for a single permission level at a time. 

Modify permissions in bulk

Click the Configure icon configure.png in the upper-right hand corner and navigate to the Users on the left-hand panel. 


Refine your list of users with the filters at the top of the page. 

Note: You can only assign user-specific permissions to users who are all at the same Permission level. 


Click Bulk Actions under the user filters. 


Select the users you wish to edit by selecting the checkboxes in the left column. You can click Select All to check all the boxes. 


Note: You can quickly locate users by selecting Quick Select and locating the users by name or email address. You can also paste a list of users in this field if each email address or name is separated by a comma.


When all the users are selected, click Edit Selected


Once you have selected your users through one of the methods above, you will be directed to the Edit # Users dialog box. In this dialog box, click Edit User-Specific Permissions.


Note: If you are trying to update users with the Site Admin permission level, click Edit Site Admin Permissions instead.

For each user-specific permission you wish to edit, click Turn all on to grant the permission to all selected users, or click Turn all off to remove the permission from all selected users. This will edit the user-specific permission setting for every user included in the bulk action. Skip any user-specific permissions you do not wish to edit in bulk. 

Click Save Permissions when finished.
