How to Set Up Referral Sources and Advertisers

A guide to setting up Referral Sources, and how to use them to guide your digital recruiting campaigns.


In A-Suite Recruit, you have the ability to set up and measure specific Referral Sources for a candidate when he or she applies for an open position.

A Referral Source is simply the original medium from which a recruit found your position and eventually applied through.

Sources like Facebook, Linked-In, and more all would be examples of Referral Sources applicable for a candidate, as seen in their User Profile.

Here's how to set up your Referral Sources in your A-Suite Recruit account.

Setting Up Your Referral Sources

To set up a Referral Source, hover over to the side navigation bar to Configuration, Recruit, and click Referral Sources.

You'll now see either a blank screen, or, a list of pre-existing Referral Sources in your menu. To add a new source, click "Add New Referral Source."

Type in the Name of your source and now your Referral Source will be saved for later use.

Referral sources must be created so you are able to link them to your advertisers later.

Step 3: Configure your advertisers

You can find all current advertiser configurations inside of your A-Suite account.


Inside your “Configure Advertisers” screen, you will see a full list of all possible advertisers.

  • Name of advertiser
  • Type of integration
    • Has Feed - A-Suite send XML feed to the advertiser
    • Posts Leads - Advertiser sends lead information to A-Suite
    • Pickup Leads - A-Suite pulls from the advertiser
  • Active or Inactive advertiser
  • Media Source - linked media source
  • Last pull - Last time the feed was pulled from the advertiser

*To edit or configure any of the advertisers. Double click on the advertiser to open


Inside an advertiser configuration: 

  • Enable or Disable your advertiser
  • Choose your linked Media Source (must match the advertiser you are configuring)
  • Choose your link destination
  • Direct lead to job description before link destination

The bottom section of your advertiser configuration screen offers you an easy way to “Show” or “Hide” your positions on this advertiser.


Step 4: Configuring advertisers inside your positions and openings


Inside your positions, you will see 3 drop-down areas where you can configure advertiser information directly inside the positions.
