The Job Posting Template is a crucial piece of the contingent labor puzzle. In fact, a user is unable to create a Job Posting in SAP Fieldglass without it. They contain the default values and information fields that appear when a job posting is created.
Templates include such information as rates, supplier distribution lists, and specific rules that need to be applied to related job postings. The manner in which they are configured depends on an organization’s procurement workflows.
Job posting templates are selected at the beginning of the creation of a job posting.
When a user creates a job posting, a template is selected and much of the information is defaulted.
When used in conjunction with Contingent Types, Buyers can set up rules and determine the fields that are visible on job postings for specific contingent labor needs. WorkingNet, for example, can create separate templates to use when hiring network engineers, programmers, accountants, or factory workers. Each template would be configured for the specific position required.
At least one job posting template must be defined before job postings can be created.
