Previously, it was only possible to publish positions on the profesia portal using the so-called XML data feed - i.e. you wrote a job ad in ATS Recruitis in the position editor and then marked it for publication on the profesia portal. The professions portal then read this XML feed several times a day and added new positions and removed deleted positions.
The API connection method allows for immediate posting of the advertisement - i.e. immediately after you post the advertisement in ATS Recruitis, it appears on the profesia portal. At the same time, it is possible to use directly the dials published in the profesia portal, e.g. for locations, and thus avoid unnecessary conversion of values entered in ATS Recruitis to values in the profesia portal (and thus possible errors resulting from the fact that the values in both dials may not be identical - e.g. job fields).
The main advantage is the fact that the advertisement appears on the profeisa portal immediately and you do not have to wait for the XML feed to be updated, which only takes place several times a day at fixed times.
💡To enable the functionality, you need to ask the profession portal for an API token, i.e. a code to connect to the profession API from ATS Recruitis.
You publish the job ad directly via the position editor in ATS Recruitis as before, only in the last step "Publication" you select the method "Advertise on the profession portal via API". This will open the next step of the editor (called "Marketplace"), where you will make the settings needed directly for the profesia portal.
Publication on the profesia portal is done using a specific form. This must be filled in and saved. Publication requires a completed form. The data not contained in this specific form, typically the job description, is taken from the ATS Recruitis editor.
The form has mandatory and optional fields marked.
If your company has any special settings within the profession portal (so-called "custom files"), these will then appear at the bottom of the form with the values you define.
Editing an advert is the same as publishing, only the starting point is now the "pencil" icon in the position detail of the channel. In other words, you cannot change the publication within the publication channels.
💡 To understand the principle of publishing, it is important that the information (profession API form and parts of the editor in ATS Recruitis) is written to the profession portal by pressing the "Publish" button.
💡In the meantime, you can edit both sources of information as you wish, but the change will not be reflected in the profession portal.
💡 With the XML feed method it was the other way around - nothing was saved, but changes made were automatically forwarded to the profession portal at fixed times during the day.
To delete a position in the profession portal, you need to go through the editing process and select the delete icon at the bottom of the form.
To top a position on the profession portal, you also need to go the editing route and select the icon for topping at the bottom of the form.
💡 Topping means changing the publication date of the advert to the current one and thus the position behaves on the profession portal as if it has just been published.
