For Unit Administrators: Application Statuses and Email Notifications in the Applicant Tracking System

A couple of tips regarding applications statuses and email notifications in the applicant tracking system:

For Unit Administrators: Formatting within the EBS Position Request Forms

Basic formatting is offered as an enhancement to the EBS position request forms. Some users have encountered issues when pasting their formatted content into the forms from another source.

Be sure to click the “Check” button on the Summary Form screen and carefully check formatting on the Review Form page before submitting.

If you find formatting issues, you will need to either go back and manually correct spacing within the field(s), or paste your content into Notepad, recopy-paste it into the field(s) and add formatting within the position form.
