Reproducing the Issue
You will find Source Tracker under the Recruiting (1) menu now, in a separate tab (2).
Available Options under the Source Tracker tab:
- this page displays a report that shows how many candidates applies are coming from different sources (e.g: job board, career site, direct link, etc.)
- this page lists the category or strategy pages of your RMK career site in case you want to use them in your campaigns to save you having to access CSB.
(if you do not have any such pages on your site then this page will show nothing)
- this is the page where you can generate tracked URLs.
More information on the Sourde Tracker:
What is the source tracker space?
The source tracker is meant for a process for recruiting users to be able to generate accurate hardcoded tracking based on the RMK/CSB URL that they are looking to share. This tool has specific source categories (types) that align under the source products (source) where you can track candidate activity specifically.
What can recruiters do in this space?
Recruiters can use this tool to create properly tracked URLs to ensure that if they are to advertise or share jobs URLs that they can clearly capture what source & product they are using. For example you can delineate between LinkedIn Job slot activity compared to Linkedin Sourcing (recruiter seat) activity by using this manual tracking. This will reflect in the recruiting analytics and ad hoc reporting.
Why is it beneficial to recruiters?
Alternatively to automated job delivery and Recruiting Posting, this is an effective manner to ensure that "Direct" and "RCM Redirect" tracking is limited in the source reporting by using these manually hard coded tracking methods. This will help solidify the integrity of your reporting and sourcing activity.
** You will also see that there is a built in option to shorten the URLs(2)
