The settings page allows you to do several tweaks to Go Fetch Jobs behavior.
Options are organized in tabs:
The first settings tab, Importer, contains the main importer options. They are organized in 4 groups:
- Imported Jobs
- Imported Jobs Filter
Checking this option will display a new dropdown on the jobs page to allow filtering imported jobs. Useful if you want to list only imported jobs, or vice-versa:
- Provider Filter
Similar to the previous option, this one, if checked, will display a new dropdown listing all providers from all your imported jobs. You can then filter jobs by provider:
- Provider Column
If you need to identify the provider for each of your imported jobs, check this option and a new column will show up on the jobs table:
- Duplicates Behavior
This option lets you change the behavior applied to jobs that were already in your database (duplicate *):
(*) GOFJ uses each job title and external URL as the unique key.
There are 2 options available:
- Ignore All (default)
- Skips importing any jobs already on your database
- If a job already existis on the database it will be updated with any new data in the current feed
- Keyword Matching
This option lets you choose how the importer should match jobs when you specify positive/negative keywords:
There are 3 available options:
- Content & Title
- Match keywords on the job title and content
- Match keywords on the job content only
- Match keywords on the job title only
- Use CORS Proxy
Since some RSS feeds that use https:// might be considered invalid if your site does not use https:// this option tries to load these feeds through a CORS proxy.
- Google API Key
To enable geolocation for imported jobs (not available on all feeds) you need a Google API key. Visit How to Generate a Google Maps API Key for more info.
- Rate Limit
This field allows you to set the rate at which the importer will geocode any RSS feeds containing geo locations (latitude/longitude). The rate limit is based on your Google maps geocoding plan (Standard by default). The default value is 50 locations per second.
The default status for all imported jobs.
The job duration for all imported jobs.
- Allow Visitors to Apply
If checked, this option will make the imported jobs external apply link visible to site visitors. By default, only registered users can see the application link.
- Read More Text
This option allows you to set the text that is appended to job description excerpts.
- Canonical Links
Canonical links allow you to notify search engines about the original source of the jobs imported. Since duplicate content is a big no-no to search engines, having jobs with the same content as the original source or with similar content on your website is seen as a negative. Checking this option could help your SEO.
