Company metadata allows you to capture and report on data custom to your organization in a standardized format. Greenhouse Recruiting includes company metadata for candidate tags, close reasons for job openings, interviewer tags, referrers, rejection reasons, and sources.
To manage company metadata, select Configure icon, then click Custom Options on the left.
Scroll to find Company Metadata.
Sometimes it may be necessary to delete company metadata as your organization grows or changes.
When deleting company metadata, you're able to replace the deleted metadata with an existing metadata, or to delete the metadata entirely.
To replace metadata, use the option I want any entity using this
[company metadata] to use this instead and choose existing metadata from the drop-down menu when deleting.
Alternately, when removing company metadata, use the option I want to permanently delete this
[company metadata] without re-assigning to permanently delete.
When company metadata is permanently deleted without re-assigning, the metadata is completely removed from all candidates, reports, jobs, or other associated entities in the hiring software.
