🆕 Applicant Sourcing: Indeed via Fountain

The Indeed Integration is a direct integration between Fountain and Indeed that enables users to post to Indeed directly in Fountain. The Indeed integration is available in the US, Canada, the UK and the EU. You do not have to have an Indeed account to use the Indeed Integration. 

While Indeed was previously part of the Boost flow, we have now moved it to its own home in Fountain. As a result of this, you can now have an active Indeed campaign and an active Boost for the same opening simultaneously. However, you can only have one Indeed campaign per opening and one Boost per opening.

What's Covered?

Introduction to Indeed via Fountain

The Indeed Integration was created to enhance and further customize your user experience when you post your job openings on Indeed. This new functionality allows you to post your openings on Indeed and take advantage of Indeed Easily Apply, while remaining in your Fountain account.

In reference to the applicant experience, applicants can apply without leaving Indeed and are placed directly in the Fountain workflow of the openings to which they applied.

To ensure that you have success with posting your job openings on Indeed, refer to the Indeed Guidelines article for Best Practices. 

Post a Job to Indeed

  1. Click on the Opening you want to post to Indeed to get to the Applicant table.
  2. Select Get Applicants.
  3. Select Indeed in the Get Applicants window.


    You can have an active Boost and Indeed posting at the same time. You CANNOT have more than one Boost or Indeed posting for the same opening.

  4. Determine and enter the amount you'd like to spend on your Indeed campaign, and enter the start and end dates.



    There's an option to choose a Fixed End Date or a Target End Date

    If you choose a Fixed End Date, your campaign will end on the selected end date, regardless of whether the full budget you've allocated to the campaign has been spent or not.

    If you choose a Target End Date, Indeed will aim to spend the entire budget for the campaign, which may cause the campaign to run past the selected end date, if additional funding is still available.

    There's a minimum of 7 days and a maximum of 365 days from today.

    You can also choose a future start date.

  5. On the next page you can edit details associated with the posting on Indeed, such as the Posting Title, Industry, Pay, Location, etc. Once you're done making the changes, select Finish Edit.


    You must also specify a payment method for Indeed here. You will be charged next month for the actual spend incurred, which may be less than the budget you allocated, for all your Indeed campaigns in the current month.



    Only one card can be used for Indeed campaigns. If you update the card information when creating a new Indeed campaign, it will be used for all your Indeed campaigns that month. However, a different card can be used for Boost purchases.

    If a card charge for your Indeed campaigns is declined, your existing Indeed card campaigns will be paused, and you will not be able to create additional Indeed campaigns until you update your card information.
  6. Enter your coupon code if you have one. 



    Ensure that the coupon you apply is equal to or less than the amount the campaign will cost. 

    For example, if the cost of your Indeed campaign is $200, and the coupon you apply is for $250, you will forfeit or lose the $50! Keep this in mind when applying coupons.
  7. Select Post to Indeed.


    Your campaign will be live on Indeed within a matter of hours!

View Your Insights on the Job Postings Dashboard

When you select Go to Dashboard on the Congratulations screen, you will be redirected to the job postings dashboard, which contains all of your Indeed campaigns and/or Boosts.


The dashboard displays the following information about your job postings:

  • Job
  • Location
  • Job Posting Type (Boost or Indeed)
  • Start Date
  • Duration
  • Budget
  • Status

If you select the particular job you'd like to view, the specific details associated with that job posting will appear. If you want to see the details of your Indeed posting at a later time, select Get Applicants in the upper-right corner of the page for the Opening you posted to Indeed and select View Indeed Post Metrics


You cannot edit an Indeed campaign once it is active. If you would like to make edits to an active Indeed campaign, you will have to cancel and redo it. For assistance with this, contact your CSM or support@fountain.com.

You cannot cancel your campaign manually. If you decide to stop an Indeed campaign before its scheduled end date, contact support@fountain.com and they can help cancel it.
