Classification Types

Article Appropriate for These User Types: ADMINISTRATOR
Applicable ATS Dashboard: SETTINGS


There are three different types of Classifications in ATS. They include:

To access the existing labels for each classification type or to add a new label, navigate to the Classifications Tab within the Settings Dashboard.
To add a new classification click the plus icon on the left. Enter the classification name and select the appropriate type: Job Board Classification, Employment Type, or Job Category. The order field allows you to control the order the labels show in the various drop down menus.

 
Job Board Classifications
Job Board Classifications are used to better identify the industry with which a job listing is associated for external job board posting purposes. It is likely that your ATS portal was implemented with a number of job board classification labels already in place. However, should you need to edit, archive, or add anything new, you may do so using tools on the Classifications Tab. Use the magnifying glass to edit, the down arrow to archive, and the plus icon to add.

The Job Board Classifications is assigned for the job listing on the Job Board Push page (megaphone icon) in the Job Board Extra Information section.
Employment Type
Employment Type Classifications are used to identify employment type for the job listing. This label is, by default, shown to the applicants when viewing the job information. This can be hidden from the applicant upon request. It is likely that your ATS portal was implemented with a number of employment type labels already in place. However, should you need to edit, archive, or add anything new, you may do so using tools on the Classifications Tab. Use the magnifying glass to edit, the down arrow to archive, and the plus icon to add.
 
Employment type classifications are assigned to job listings in the Employment Type field.
Job Categories
An optional classification type can be added within the ATS to group job listings into different job categories. This is an option that must be turned on for your site by the ExactHire Client Services team. Once enabled, you have the option of creating classification labeled as Job Category. This custom category can be named whatever you choose. In the example image below the job category has been called Clearance Status. The job category is, by default, hidden from applicants view but upon request can be made visible to the applicant in the job listing information. This new category may be used in reports, but cannot be used to sort job listings or to restrict user access. For more information see the Optional Job Categories tip sheet.
