It is possible for a recruiting user to set up Personal Preferences to auto-populate users into the operator fields.

Recruiting > Preferences > My Recruiting Team Preferences > Select a Requisition Template

- Note there is no way to restrict what requisition templates a user will see here. It is expected that all requisition templates will be available to select.


  1. Select “Hiring Manager” (or whatever label has been given to the hiringManagerName field in the instance) from the “When I am the…” drop down.


    - Note you can only specify default operators for requisitions on which you are the hiring manager. This prevents conflicts from occurring, where multiple users on the requisition might specify different default operators.
  2. Specify the desired user as a Default Operator for each field, if any.


-  Your name appears as the Default Operator value for the hiring manager field, since you are setting this up for conditions where you are the hiring manager.

- Personal preference lookups occur automatically only at the point where the requisition details page is saved. This means that changes on personal preferences from a specific operator will not auto-populate if you only change the operator in the job requisition, the primary operators settings will not take effect until the operator user saves the requisition details page. If there is a conflict between the operators already manually-selected on a requisition and the personal preferences for that operator field, the operators already selected on the requisition will be retained and the personal preferences will not be honored. If there is a conflict between the default operator user set up in Personal Preferences and the default operator user set up in Admin Tools > Manage Recruiting Team Settings, the value in Personal Preferences takes precedence.

- This setting will work for most operator roles on a requisition, however using "My Recruiting Team Preferences" when you are an originator of a requisition is not supported. If you would like to see this changed in future releases please vote for the enhancement 290799.

- You will be able to assign any user to a recruiting team using My Recruiting Team Preferences, even if they are not part of the recruiting group attached to the recruiting team. The recruiting group only applies to the job requisition details page. If you would like to see this changed in future releases please vote for the enhancement 230620.
