Requisition and Applicant Preferences - Requisition Field-Level Access

This section allows administrators to select standard fields and Requisition custom fields that appear on a job requisition and define the access level of the field for requisition owners, requisition approvers, applicant reviewers, and hiring managers. The following access levels are available, depending on the field:

  • Edit
  • Hidden
  • Read-Only

To access Requisition and Applicant Preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Recruit. Then, select Requisition and Applicant Preferences from the General Recruitment section.

Define Field-Level Access

This section allows administrators to define the access level for certain fields on a job requisition. The administrator can select a field from a list, and then determine the access level for requisition owners, requisition approvers, applicant reviewers, and hiring managers.

To define field-level access:

  1. Click the plus sign icon to the right of the Requisition Field-Level Access section header. This opens the Configure Requisition Field-Level Access pop-up.

  1. Complete the following fields in the pop-up:
    1. Requisition Field - This drop-down displays the list of fields for which access can be defined. The fields appear on the General tab of the job requisition. Select the field from the drop-down. Some fields will display additional instructional text below the drop-down to indicate special circumstances about the field. For example, if the EEO Category field is selected, then text appears to indicate that the field only applies for requisitions that fall under the Division organizational unit (OU) for which this field appears.
    2. Note: The pop-up does not identify fields as standard fields or as Requisition custom fields. Standard fields that are not available to select in the pop-up are fields for which visibility is determined by the user's security permissions.

    3. Requisition Owner - This field allows you to select the owner-level access. The following options are available:
      1. Edit - When this option is selected, the Requisition Owner can edit the field.
      2. Read-Only - When this option is selected, the field displays as read-only.
      3. Hidden - When this option is selected, the field is hidden from the user.
    4. Requisition Approver - This field allows you to select the access for requisition approvers. The following options are available:
      1. Read-Only - When this option is selected, the field displays as read-only.
      2. Hidden - When this option is selected, the field is hidden from the user.
    5. Applicant Reviewer - This field allows you to select the access for applicant reviewers. The following options are available:
      1. Read-Only - When this option is selected, the field displays as read-only.
      2. Hidden - When this option is selected, the field is hidden from the user.
    6. Hiring Manager - This field allows you to select the access for hiring managers. The following options are available:
      1. Read-Only - When this option is selected, the field displays as read-only.
      2. Hidden - When this option is selected, the field is hidden from the user.
  2. Click Save to save the settings. This closes the pop-up, and the field and access settings display in the table.
  3. Click Submit at the bottom of the Requisition and Applicant Preferences page to submit the preferences changes.

EEO Category Field

The EEO Category field only appears in the Requisition Field drop-down the in the Configure Requisition Field-Level Access pop-up if the Record EEO preference is enabled. The Record EEO field is enabled in the Compliance Preferences section on the Requisition and Applicant Preferences page.
