Creating, Editing, and Deleting Jobs

First off, we’ll need to create a new job opening.  Simply navigate to the WordPress admin dashboard, and find the “Jobs” link under the “Apptivo” section of the left column.  On this page you will see a form with multiple fields.  We will fill in these fields with the information for our job, only the title and description field are required.  The other fields are optional, and can be included/excluded using custom templates.

Once you have finished filling in the fields, just click the “Create Jobs” button to create the new entry.

Upon creating the job, you will notice it now appears in a list at the top of the screen.  All future jobs will be placed in this list, which provides links to either edit the job information, or delete it completely.  Upon clicking the pencil icon, the form at the bottom of the page will be completed with the information from the chosen job.  You can then modify these fields as needed, and then click the “Update” button at the bottom to save.

Here is where you configure what fields are collected from the candidate.  You can add a field by checking the “show” box, and force a user to complete the field by selecting “require”.  Also, customize the order the fields appear in, and the text that is shown next to the field as well.

If you would like candidates to submit their resume, use the “upload” field available in this section.  It will provide the user with a field where they can select a file from their desktop and upload into the website.

Custom Fields

If you desire to add a different field to collect with your form, you can add up to 5 custom fields.  There are 5 different types of fields you can add, outlined below:

  1. Checkbox – Allow the user to submit yes/no answers.  Commonly used to accept terms and conditions, or verify a user’s age.
  2. Radio Option – Provide the users multiple options, one of which must be selected.  Used for the same purposes as a select.
