Permissions: Job Admins, who can edit custom fields, and Site Admins

Product tier: Available for all subscription tiers

When you are getting ready to create an offer for a candidate in Greenhouse Recruiting, there is a default list of fields that automatically are filled into the offer letter.  You can customize how these fields appear to fit the needs of your organization. 

Click here for more information on creating a custom job field. See this topic to learn more about creating offers.

Note: The following fields must be identical between the custom job field and the custom offer field.  

  • Field name
  • Field type (all field types are supported)
  • Options (for single select or multi select fields)

Any differences between the fields will cause them to not automatically populate in offers.
