Embed the Fountain Application Form on Website

You can still use Fountain's Application Form and have the visual and branding of your website by using iframe to seamlessly incorporate the Fountain application form into your website, rather than the applicant having to click a link that redirects them to the Fountain application form.  
 

Setup

Embedding the application form is relatively easy, but you may want to enlist the help of your development team! You will need to use an iframe to set this up in your website's code. 
 

Creating Your Iframe Code

This is the basic code for an iframe that you can place into your website's code, however, you'll need to change the URL to your Application Form's URL. 

 <iframe src="https://www.fountain.com/company_name/apply/opening_name/embed"></iframe>
 
The easiest way to go about getting the URL that you will use in your iframe is to navigate to your Jobs Directory page. 
To find the link of the application form you’d like to embed, simply load the Jobs Directory page and click on the opening you’d like to embed.
 
 
 
From there, just copy the URL in the URL bar and place it in the iframe between the quotes after <iframe src=” and then add /embed” to the end of that URL.

If you would like, you can also append UTM parameters to the end of the URL. (You can learn more about UTM source tracking in this article.)

If you disable the jobs directory, you can preview the application form for the opening you'd like to embed and select everything in the url before the "?" (Don't forget to include the "/embed" at the end of the URL in the iframe) To preview the application form, navigate to your openings by hovering over the 'Jobs' dropdown in the upper left corner of the Fountain page and click on the 'Actions' dropdown menu on the opening you'd like to embed and click on 'View Application Form'
 
 
 
This will input a simple frame inside of the webpage that will display your application form. 
 
You can make tweaks to the size and look and feel of the iframe by using various attributes. In the example below, we’ve used some basic attributes to increase the size of the frame by using width=921’ and height=527’.
