Explanation of terms

The application portal presents job advertisements activated by the job publication channel as a list.

The application portal can be used in two ways. Fully, to display or extend your career page, or as a collection point/list for publications, which can then be included on any web page through the widget, for example, or its link and interface can be used for display on job boards.  


Application portal as career site

If the start page is activated, the application portal can extend or replace your career page. It can be adapted to the layout of your homepage as far as possible. Please contact us for this. On the start page you can insert additional code, insert an image, define a headline, which can also contain text and further images, edit the footer and use an additional column on the right. The list of job offers is displayed on this page.

Application portal as a collection point for publications

If you do not use the application portal as a career site, the start page will be disabled.

An application portal is always connected to a job publication channel. This allows you to control the transfer of job publications to different platforms. For example, you can create one application portal each for: Homepage, Intranet, StepStone, Monster etc. and display a list of job offers via widget on the page (example Homepage or Intranet) or provide data via an interface for the portals (example Stepstone or Monster).

When using CMS

If you integrate content on your website via CMS, you design the application portal in such a way that both the homepage and the job advertisement are deactivated. You pull the content out of the interface and design it on your homepage as you want it.

Behavior in the system

  • With the creation of an application portal the interface (Job Publication API) is active. Accordingly, job boards can retrieve the data through the interface (JSON, XML or RSS) in conjunction with the URL.
  • More about this here: Get started with: Connecting job boards with d.vinci.
  • Special characteristics can be given to all applicants who apply via the respective portal. This is for example practical for internal applicants or applicants that a recruitment agency enters.
  • IP access rules can be used to restrict access to the application portal. In this way, only a certain group of users is allowed to call up the job advertisements. This is useful on an intranet, for example.
  • Tracking that applies to all pages of the portal can be entered in the Additional Header for all pages in the Data tab.
  • HTML code can be inserted via the Additional header for all pages or in the Homepage tab, which makes changes to the homepage.
  • The URL path field is not a required field, as it is also possible to specify a portal without a URL. This is the case by default for the "Homepage" portal. However, the field must be unique. This means that as soon as a designation is entered a second time, an error message will appear.

Short overview of the functions of an application portal 

This is how our customers use it

In most cases, the application portal is used to generate the entries in the job list (as a collection point for publications) and data is transferred to job boards via the interface.

In a few cases the application portal is used as a career site. This is often the case for customers who do not have their own career site, if there is no intranet, but internal jobs are to be listed separately, or if specific jobs are to be displayed quickly in an extra section.
