Board Configuration (for Admins)

Field Name Field Type Required Description
Username open text YES The DPI (Bulkposter) Username provided by your CareerBuilder Account Representative.
Password open text YES The DPI Password provided by your CareerBuilder Account Representative.
JobSkinID open text NO

This field allows you to specify the unique ID which will be used to identify the particular Job Skin that will be used for the posting.  The job skin must already exist on the client’s account.  The client should contact their CareerBuilder Account Manager to retrieve this value.

CBName open text NO CBName is the ID of CareerBuilder hosted template that all jobs should be associated with. CBName is also known as 'Brandbuilder ID' or 'HHName'.
*The CBName is applied on the CareerBuilder end and is not setup in eQuest.

We also allow an optional value (separated by comma) after the CBName; if this format is used, the second value will become the CBCustAccountCode. CBCustAccountCode is sometimes useful in the Careerbuilder activity reports for those situations where the ATS always sends eQuest one company name. If you have many brands with different names that you need to bill back to, you can use CBCustAccountCode to specify each brand name.

The CBCustAccountCode value will then be included in the CareerBuilder activity reports. Otherwise, we default CBCustAccountCode to the company name sent over in the job (via the ATS).

*CBCustAccountCode can be used in conjunction with CBName_Selector.
CBName_Selector dropdown NO Allows users to select from more than one CareerBuilder hosted template on a per post basis. Overrides the CBName field. Contact eQuest Support if you would like to use the CBName Selector.
IO_CustAcctCode boolean NO Will pass the IO Number for the job into the CB field CustAcctCode. Will override any other field used to assign CustAcctCode
NativeApply boolean NO When selected, will use CB's native candidate application process and will override the ATS candidate response url.
