Job Description Page

Page Location: Admin > Page Builder > Requisition > Create Req Form > Wizard Layout

The Job Description Page captures text information about the requisition which can then be used to create job postings for job boards or the careers site.
Enter a Title and Instructions for the page so the user knows what to do at this stage of the creation process. Pressing the  icon on this page only saves the Title and Instructions.  Details about the additional information on the page are saved when editing the menu option selected.

If this is NOT the default wizard template, click on the words Copy from Default Template to make this page mirror the default process already defined. Once copied, all of the settings can be adjusted as needed.

Each of the four tabs of the Job Description page or any notes stored on the Notes page can be included on the Job Description page.  Before completing the setup for this page, think about how this information is going to be used in order to determine what fields should be posted out for the user. 

  1. Is the information entered on this page going to be directly posted out to the website without modification?
    • Think about all the information which should flow over to the job posting and how it will be displayed on the website an for job boards. 
      • Do you want to have separate sections for the Job Description and the Requirements?  If so, use both sections on this page. 
      • Do you want separate sections for Required and Desired Qualifications?  If so, use 'Requirements' for Required Qualifications and 'Other' for Desired Qualifications
      • Do you have a need for an corporate posting which would be different from a job board posting?  If so, be sure to post out the 'Public Job Description' and make this be the job board description and use other fields for the corporate posting. 
  2. Is the information entered on this page going to be a starting point for developing a job posting for the website and/or job boards?
    • Think about what information is needed from the user who is creating the request.  You may elect to post out the Job Description and Requirements tabs but then, before posting the job, manually write up the 'Public Job Description'.  If so, don't include the 'Public Job Description' in the creation process.
  3. Is there information which needs to be captured that isn't directly related to a traditional job description?
    • What other information, which isn't already represented, might need to be added to the job description.  Add a Note to the page to allow the user to enter in this additional information.  For example, if each job should have a paragraph about benefits, add a note to capture the benefits information for this requisition.
Press the  icon to edit any of the standard fields on this page (from the Job Description).  Continue to edit the page until the order, instructions, and attributes are correct.

Field Purpose 
Visible Setting this field to Yes allows the user to see this field when creating the requisition.
Enabled Setting this field to Yes allows the user to enter information into this field.  Leave this field set to No if information should be displayed but should not be changed.  For example, if the creation process is supposed to use template, a field may be Visible to the user but not enabled thus allowing the user to review the information but restricting any changes.
Required Setting this field to Yes forces the user to enter information before the page can be saved and the user can move on to the next page. 
Order Choose what order this field should show on the page.  By default, the field appear in the same order as the tabs on the Job Description page and then the Notes afterwards.  If the fields should appear in a different order, specify that in each field until the page order is correct.
Instructions This is the caption for the field.  Enter in what information is needed from the user who is creating the requisition.


If additional information is needed, press the link for Add Note to add another option to the list.  Then, press the the icon to continue the setup.

Field Purpose 
Enabled Setting this field to Enabled allows the user to enter information into this field.  Leave this field set to Disabled if information should be displayed but should not be changed.  For example, if the creation process is supposed to use template, a field may be Visible to the user but not enabled thus allowing the user to review the information but restricting any changes.
Caption Enter in what information is needed from the user who is creating the requisition.
Note Type Select the type of note using the drop-down provided.  If the type is not in the drop-down, stop this process and enter in a new note type under Admin > Codes > Note Types > Requisition.
Required Setting this field to Yes forces the user to enter information before the page can be saved and the user can move on to the next page. 
Order Choose what order this field should show on the page.  
Default Enter in any text which should be in the note upon the creation of the requisition.  For example, if the benefits are standard but can be slightly adjusted based on the position, you may want to include the standard benefits in the 'Default' field.  This would allow the user to review the benefits and make adjustments for this one position.

NOTE: Adding in a default satisfies the requirement field.  Meaning, if the field is required AND a default is entered, the program does not require that the defaulted information be changed.
