Create a Template

Use templates to standardize the structure and content of your job posts.

Datapeople's templates help Admins ensure that all job posts throughout the company are consistent and on-brand. With templates, you can lock in essential, up-to-date content and language and leave guidelines and placeholders for users. You can also build and organize templates for different types of jobs – whether by department, office location, or another distinction – so any hiring team can get a head start with a standardized, optimized partial draft. Only Admin users can create and edit templates.

Locking content

Fields that can be locked within your ATS can also be locked within Datapeople using the lock icon at the top right. 

  • Unlocked: Users will be able to edit the content of this field in any job using this template.

  • Locked: Users will not be able to delete or change the content in this field. Datapeople users typically lock sections that include text that should appear verbatim on every job, such as Equal Opportunity Employment statements, diversity statements, or company "About Us" statements.

Once your content and locks are final, you and your team can use this template on any new Datapeople draft!

You may create as many templates as you need for different job types, teams, or geographies that may have unique content.

All users in your account have access to use any template you create.
