While our default Activity Categories cover typical job search tasks and events, each organization has their own processes and methodology for helping job seekers. Custom activity categories allow you to create activity types that are not covered under our defaults.

Once your have created a custom activity category for your organization, all of your job seekers will be able to log that type of activity from their boards.

Here are two examples of activity categories some of our customers have created:

  1. Meetup: Have job seekers log this type of activity when they plan to attend a meetup.
  2. 1-on-1: Have advisors or job seekers log this type of activity after an advising 1-on-1 meeting. Activities have a 'notes' field, which could be used to store the meeting notes.

Creating custom activity categories

  1. Go to the Settings tab in your advisor portal.
  2. Scroll down to the Custom Activity Categories section.
  3. Click on + Activity.
  4. Enter the activity name and description, then select a color and icon that represents that activity type.
  5. If the category you are creating represents an Application, Interview, Offer Received or Offer Accepted, then select this type from the Activity Category Type dropdown, if not leave it blank.
  6. Click Create.
