Adding source parameters to a Clinch Talent page

Sending hardcoded text parameters

You may want to pass hardcoded text parameters to your ATS from Clinch Talent, whenever a candidate completes an apply url call to action. To set this up, perform the following steps:

1. Edit the page settings, and click the Attribution tab

2. Populate the parameter name and value text boxes. 

For example, to send hardcoded text parameters to Jobvite from the apply url call to action, you would select the "Text" type and populate the parameters with values for __jvst and __jvsd (detailed  here)

Now whenever the candidate completes the call to action from this page, your parameters will be appended to the apply url

http://jobs.jobvite.com/<your-company-id>/job/<your-job-id>/apply?nl=1&__jvst=Clinch&__jvsd=Landing%20Page

Assuming the candidate completes the application, you should now be able to observe the source parameters in your ATS

Note: Jobvite users

Make sure that your source type (in the example above it's "Clinch") exists in the list of sources under More > Admin > Configuration > Sources. If it does not exist, click Add Candidate Source to add it.


Sending the candidate's source as a parameter

You may want to pass a candidate's source to your ATS e.g. Indeed.com, Google etc. To set this up, perform the following steps:

1. Edit the page settings, and click the Attribution tab

2. Populate the parameter name and value text boxes.

For example, to send the candidate's source to Jobvite from the apply url call to action, we have to send two parameters: __jvst and __jvsd. First, select the "Text" type for the __jvst parameter and set its value to something like "Campaign", "Clinch" etc. Then select "Current Source" for the __jvsd parameter. The value for __jvsd will be calculated by Clinch Talent. Clinch Talent will look at the candidate's recent browsing experience and extract either the utm_source from the url they visited from or the request referer domain (taken from the HTTP request header).

Using Jobvite as an example, if a candidate came to a Clinch Talent job page via a link that contained "utm_source=indeed" in the url, and completed the apply CTA shortly afterwards, then the candidate's source would appear as "indeed" within Jobvite.
