How do I activate and use the Idealist integration with Greenhouse?

To get started with your Idealist integration in Greenhouse for the first time, please follow the guidelines below.

You can enable integrations right from your dashboard! Begin by logging in to Idealist, then visit your organization's Dashboard by clicking your name at the top right corner of your screen, then click the name of your organization under "My Organizations." 

Once there, you will see a menu of options for your organization's account on the left side of the screen. 

Click "Integrations" under the "Manage Accounts" section. Then click Greenhouse. You'll see a popup window where you will enter your Greenhouse Job Board Token.

Your Job Board Token is the unique part of your board's URL on Greenhouse. For example, Idealist's URL on Greenhouse is boards.greenhouse.io/idealist, so Idealist's Job Board Token is simply "idealist." To learn more about Job Tokens on Greenhouse please visit this Greenhouse Help Center article.

You can choose to auto-publish jobs or publish jobs manually. Auto-publish will post all jobs currently on your Greenhouse Recruiting job board to Idealist. Additionally, any future jobs you post to Greenhouse Recruiting will automatically be posted to Idealist.

This option requires you to purchase Job Credit Packs from Idealist. Each job posted in this way will spend one (1) Credit.

To instead select which jobs you’d like to import manually, do not enable the Auto-Publish option. Instead, click the checkbox next to the jobs you would like to import to Idealist and then click “Import Selected.” You will then input your invoice and payment information and pay for these by credit card, indicate that you will be sending a check, or use any Job Credits you have purchased. Please note that prices will vary depending on the type of organization you represent.
