Multi-posting your vacancy adverts

One of the key features of idibu is the ability to post your vacancy adverts to multiple job boards and social sources in one posting action. Every applicant received via any of these channels will appear in the candidates tab of your vacancy. 

In this article we we will take you through each step of the posting process when using idibu directly in your browser. If you are using idibu inside your CRM, then take a look at this article instead.

We'll take you through the posting process sequentially, but we've provided the following links to each section for ease of reference in future:

  1. To start posting your advert
  2. Setting the advert to post live at a later date
  3. Posting on behalf of a colleague
  4. Selecting an idibu Application Page
  5. Adding a custom apply URL
  6. Choosing your posting destinations

To start posting your advert

1. From any page inside your vacancy click 'RECRUITING OPTIONS', then click 'Post out adverts'.

2. All the information you added to the vacancy details page will automatically be pulled through to the posting page. This makes it faster and easier to turn your core vacancy information into an advert without you having to start from scratch. You can edit any of the details as needed in this area.

3. Having tailored your advert text there are a few other tools available in this area which you might want to utilise:

Setting the advert to post live at a later date

You can choose whether you want to post your advert 'Now' or at a specific date and time by clicking the blue text button next to 'Send ads:' in the top right hand corner:

Select the date and use the time sliders to choose precisely when you would like your advert to go live across the destinations you select at the next stage.

Posting on behalf of a colleague

If you have the relevant permissions, you can post the advert in the name of a colleague so that the application alerts are directed to them. This is particularly useful when covering for someone who is on holiday or off sick.

Go to the top left of the page and your name will be displayed. Click this and select your colleagues name from the dropdown list instead.

Click the tick box and add your URL in the field provided.
