2810377 - How to add new fields to Listing Fields with Manage Templates - Recruiting Management


In order to have more tokens in the job description header and footer tokens list, you will need to add them to the Listing Fields part of the job requisition XML.

How can that be done through Manage Templates feature?

NOTE: It is very important to keep in mind this tool is extremely powerful. Modifications made to templates can have a direct impact on candidate experience, integrations, custom integrations, etc. Change should only be made by a qualified individual that is familiar with the configuration.
