7. You can also check the 'Notifications' setting if you would like to receive email notifications when someone applies to this Job Posting.
- For each separate Role and availability, you will need to set up an individual alert.

Managing your Job Postings
1. Head to More > Hiring > Job Postings to view your current Job Postings. You can filter your posts by Location and Role, and sort your view further using the options below.
2. On the Job Post dashboard, you can do a few things to manage your Job Postings:
- Click on '+ Add a Job Posting' to create more
- Click on '# Candidates' (highlighted in blue) to view any current candidate profiles
- Click on 'Share' (highlighted in blue) to access and share the post's unique application link
- View the status of a post, whether it's in 'Draft' mode, 'Active', or 'Inactive'
- Select the 'Pencil' icon to edit it
- Select the 'More' icon to, view, deactivate, reactivate it, or delete
3. If you click on the 'More' icon you will see the following options:
- View job posting - To view the details in the post that candidates will see.
- Duplicate job posting - To make a copy of an existing Job Post. This will allow you to use one of your posts as a template and set up another one more quickly. You can then edit this new Job Post as much as you would like to better suit your needs.
- Deactivate job posting - This will remove the post so that candidates will no longer be able to apply for this job via 7shifts. However, you’ll still be able to view applications from candidates who have already applied. This can be used when you're no longer looking to fill that position but may start hiring again sometime in the future.
When Job Postings are reactivated, they will be freshly indexed through Google for increased candidate discovery.
- Delete - This will delete the Job Post permanently so that candidates will no longer be able to apply for this job via 7shifts.
4. If you click on the 'Pencil' icon, this will allow you to make any desired updates to your post. You can make changes to Job Postings regardless of their status (Active, Inactive, or Daft).
While editing a Job Posting, you can choose to enable/disable email notifications for the post at the bottom of the page. Going forward, these alerts will only get directed to the last person that edited and saved this Job Posting.
