Setting Up

Sell Applications

To make sure the field values of imported Jobg8 jobs match your job board field values you need to map these field values (for Category, Employment Type and Salary Type fields). Because in most cases your job board field values and Jobg8 fields values will be different.

You can click 'Mapping' button to do mapping:

Follow the mapping instructions to map the fields correctly. The main idea is:


  • In the left column you see the Jobg8 fields.


  • In the right column you see your job board fields. 


  • You should select your job board field that matches Jobg8 field the best way.


  • In case there is no match you may uncheck any Jobg8 value so jobs with these values would not be imported on your job board


  • In case you want to map Jobg8 field to another field on your job board just enter its ID and press "Change Field" button:


Please do not forget top do mapping for all three fields:


Once you have done mapping for one field do not forget to press 'Apply' or 'Save' button to save your changes.
