By default, every user in your Greenhouse Recruiting account can be selected as a referrer in the Who Gets Credit field. If your organization wants to assign credit to a unique referrer other than a user, such as for candidates submitted through a specific campaign, you can create a custom referrer. In this article, we will discuss how to create a custom referrer option to address those needs. 

To add a custom referrer, click the Configure icon in the upper right-hand corner and select Custom Options from the left-hand panel.


On the subsequent page, click Referrers under the Company Metadata section.


On the Manage Referrers page, click the Create New Referrer button. Use the subsequent dialog box to provide a name for the custom referrer. Click Create Referrer when finished.

Note: The Manage Referrers page shows only custom referrers your team has created. However, you do not need to add individual users as custom referrers to assign the users credit. All users in your Greenhouse Recruiting account will always appear in Who Gets Credit dropdown menus. 


Your newly created referrer will appear under the Who Gets Credit list on the candidate's Details tab > Source & Responsibility panel.

Note: Custom referrers cannot be selected in the Who Gets Credit dropdown when creating a tracking link.
