Reproducing the Issue

  1. Click on the Homepage navigation menu
  2. Notice the 'Recruiting' tab is not available


Users will not see Recruiting tab, when the following two conditions are met:

  • The user doesn't have the role-based permission to create job requisition forms
  • The user doesn't have an operator role on any job requisitions


For the employee to be able to see Recruiting tab, grant the following permission in Manage Permission Roles:

  • General User Permissions > Permission to Create Forms (select at least one job requisition form)


  • Users will see 'Create New' button on Job Requisition Summary page when having the permission above.
  • A user who doesn't have the permission can still access Recruiting tab as long as the user has an operator role on any job requisitions.
  • If you want to hide 'Create New' button but still need to give user the access to Recruiting tab, please add the user to any job requisition operator fields (e.g. Recruiter) or operator team fields (e.g. Recruiter Team).
