You'll need a valid e-mail address to create an account. After signing up you'll need to click the activation link e-mailed to the address you provided— this can sometimes take a few minutes (check your Spam folder if it doesn't seem to be there).
You can change your e-mail after registering by visiting the Settings link from the top-right profile menu. Note that this also changes your login, so you will need to use this new address the next time you log in.
If you can't remember what password you used, click the Forgot password? link to reset it.
Uploading a CSV is a great way to import data from a spreadsheet you created in Excel, for example. By importing you can keep all the jobs you've already been tracking while stilltaking advantage of Jobkeeper's features.
To get started, save your spreadsheet as CSV ("comma-separated" or "comma-delimited" text file). Here are instructions for common applications:
Importing happens under the All Applications section of Jobkeeper. From there, upload the file and then click import.
You will need to use column headers, and they should include the following (exactly as named here):
interest- must be a number between 1 and 5 or left blank
status- must be one of these values: Unsubmitted (the default), Submitted, Interviewing, Rejected, Declined, Accepted; or left blank
app_submitted_date- currently broken; see below
Alternately, download this CSV template to use as a starter for creating your own.
CSV import is currently a beta feature and while it does work, it is a bit finicky. Firstly, this feature lacks validation and error handling, which means the import could fail without offering any useful information on why (just go back and double-check your CSV). Sometimes it imports correctly, but still throws an error. Secondly, the
app_submitted_date field/column does not work
at all. You will, unfortunately, have to manually set these in the meantime after importing. Lastly, the CSV importer can't handle huge volumes of data—stick to under 200 rows and you should be fine.
Thanks for your patience while we sort this out (get in touch if you can help fix this!).
