Allow Marketplace access

This setting, which is active by default, gives Standard users access to the Marketplace and allow them to browse or make purchases. When this setting is active, Standard users will be able to:

  • see the Marketplace link in the top navigation or in dropdown menus.
  • see the Advertise step of the Job Posting Wizard (set #4 for new jobs, and step #2 in when editing an additional job ad), and purchase paid ads. Standard users will still be able to post on the free aggregators.
  • see the Advertise button on any job's profile page:Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 1.31.15 PM.png

  • see the Send to agency link in the More menu of a job's profile and in the Agencies section of the Sourcing tab:ChangeStatus_JobProfile.png
  • see the Assessment section on a candidate's profile:AssessmentsView.png

Deactivate this setting to prevent Standard users from accessing the Marketplace, purchasing ads or assessments, or sending jobs to agencies.

Display Marketplace link

With this setting active, Admin, Extended, and Standard users can see the Marketplace link on the drop-down menu after clicking on the user's avatar:


If this setting is deactivated, users will still be able to purchase paid ads in the Job Posting Wizard.

Display Assessments section

This setting controls the visibility of the Assessments section on the candidate profile. It's active by default, and allows any user with full access to the candidate to select pre-configured assessments and send them to candidates, or browse for assessments in the Marketplace.
