The Application Form is the first page that the applicant goes through: it collects the applicant's name, email, and phone number. 


What's Covered


Using the Application Form

When looking at the Jobs Directory, each link that goes to a position is an Application Form link.


To learn more about the Jobs Directory, click here. While you can use Fountain's Jobs Directory and Application Form, there are other methods to customize your applicant's experience.


Hosting Application Form Options

There are three primary ways of hosting Fountain on your site. The first uses Fountain's Application Form, which conveniently links to any website or job board. Simply copy the URL and link where desired. You can also collect data via an external application through a website form, Google Form, Type Form, or in-app then push data into Fountain. The last option is using an iFrame of Fountain's site within your company's website. We will explore all three here. 


Fountain's Application Form

  1. Locate the Jobs tab in the top left corner and click to open the dropdown. Then click Openings.
  2. Find the opening you want to retrieve the application form from. Click the 3 dots Actions button to the left of the Opening.
  3. Click View Job.
  4. Copy the link from the top address bar and link it to any job boards you are using. 



External Application - Company's Site 

You can collect applicant data via a website form, Google form, Typeform, or in-app form, then push that data into Fountain for further screening. Click here to learn more about Typeform integration, and click here for Google form integration. This option gives users full control of the branding and visuals for their form. External applications also require a client-owned development team to build the API and manage the integration.

When building an external Application Form, users must create Sorting Conditions to filter applicants to the appropriate Openings. When an applicant matches the Opening’s Sorting Conditions, they will be automatically placed in that Opening. 

Example: Using sorting conditions, applicants living in Seattle can be placed into an opening that is specific to Seattle.

  • Missing Sorting Conditions: If Sorting Conditions are not set up, applications submitted through external Application Forms and webhooks will be sorted into the default Opening (typically the first Opening created).
  • Incomplete Sorting Conditions: If Sorting Conditions are incomplete, or if an applicant does not match the sorting condition of any Opening, all applicants will be sorted into the default Opening (typically the first Opening created). 



Add an iFrame of Fountain's application form to your company's site. This requires a website builder on your side. View how to grab Fountain's Application Form link here.
