Copying and pasting a formatted job description into Workable from external sources (e.g. a Word document) may cause formatting issues on job boards due to hidden formatting/spacing which may be mildly distorted between systems. For this reason, we recommend stripping any formatting first and applying it directly in Workable. More specifically:
- Copy a role's job description and paste it here online to remove its format
- Copy and paste it back to Workable and make any formatting directly there. Note: If you are updating a job it can take up to 24 hours for the changes to be visible across all job boards.
Tips and common issues
- Gaps between bullet points
Locate the bullet after the gap and just hit the Backspace key once. This will remove the extra spacing that is causing the issue.
- Clone a job instead of copying and pasting the description
To use the same job description without copying and pasting, you can easily clone the job in Workable. The job description will be the same as what you set for the original job.
