Keep everything in check with Opening Approvals

Hiring is all about collaboration. With the latest enhancement to openings, you can collaborate with your colleagues on the content of an opening, before it goes live.

What is it?

The Opening Approvals enhancement allows you to send draft openings to a colleague for approval. They can then review the opening content, and approve or reject the opening.

How do I use it?

The first step is to turn the Opening Approvals feature on. Any Super Admin can do this under Settings > Opening Approvals.

Once turned on, you'll have the option to send any draft opening for approval. This option will display after you set up the Hiring Workflow, or while any opening is still marked as a draft.

You can send the approval to one user for each opening. The person must be a Recruiterbox user prior to sending for approval.

All users types can be sent to approve openings. The only exception is hiring team member users, who are not able to be Opening Approvers, unless the hiring team member is added as a Job Admin for the opening.

Once included as someone approving the opening, this user now has access as an "Other Member" to this opening.

Once you've sent the opening for approval, you'll see the status of the opening at the top of the opening details, as well as on the openings dashboard:

The user you sent the opening to will receive an email that there is a pending approval, and see a note on the Openings Dashboard referencing the pending approval.

Once they click on the opening, they will have the option to review and approve the opening:

Once approved, the opening is saved as a draft, and the person who requested approval is notified that their opening was approved.

If the opening is rejected, the opening is saved as a draft, and the person who requested approval is notified that the opening was rejected.

You can always edit the opening, and then send for approval again (to the same user), if you wish.

Both the approval or rejected status also reflects on the Openings dashboard
