About requisition approvals

Establish approval flows for requisitions in advance, enhancing precision and expediting the procedure. Learn how to configure and manage requisitions for your company.

What are requisitions?

A requisition process is used by organizations to request and manage job openings. It starts with a hiring manager or recruiter creating a job requisition that includes job details. It includes details such as the job title, responsibilities, required qualifications, and other relevant information.

Once approved, it becomes a job posting for recruitment.

Set up requisitions

How to enable the requisitions

  1. On your sidebar, click on Settings.
  2. Click on Recruitment
  3. Head to Processes
  4. Enable the Requisitions button


- Enabling requisitions changes the process of creating job openings. Instead of allowing users with the permission to create job openings, requisitions need to be requested by employees.

- By default, any employee can request a new job opening, but this can be adjusted through permissions. Simply disable the permission for the default group and assign it to specific groups of users who can have the ability to request new positions.
