Does BlueSky integrate with Facebook?

Q: I want to post jobs and recruit caregivers on Facebook; can I do this with BlueSky?

A: Yes! Linking your BlueSky system and your company's Facebook is incredibly easy...and free! You can push Travel Needs and Permanent Placement Needs to Facebook.

Before you set up this integration, you'll need to do two things:

1. Either have or create a Facebook page for your company, and

2. Be an admin for this page!

1. Open Facebook in Permissions (you'll need to be a system admin to do this):

  • Click Admin > Permissions > Permissions
  • Select the appropriate Region and User Group
  • Click OK.
  •  You'll enable Permissions in 3 areas; Integrated Systems, Travel Needs, and Permanent Placement
2. Enable Permissions in Integrated Systems:

  • Click the + sign next to Admin
  • Click the + sign next to Integrated Systems
  • Click the + sign next to Tabsets
  • Click on the word FaceBook. The Permission should be set to Full Rights, if not, change the Permission and click OK.

  • Click the + sign next to Facebook, and enable (if you need to) the sub-menu items:

3. Enable Permissions in Travel Needs and Permanent Placement:

  • Click the + sign next to Scheduling
  • Click the + sign next to Travel Needs
  • Click the + sign next to Tabsets
  • Click the + sign next to Need Request
  • Click the + sign next to Sections
  • Scroll to Post Need onto Facebook Page, click on the words:

  • Set the Permission to Full Rights
  • Click OK
  • Follow the same steps for Permanent Placement
  • Changes take effect after you click Save, log out of BlueSky, and log back in.

  • Click Admin > Integrated Systems > Facebook Users

  • Click New

  • Repeat for each company user that you would like to post jobs
5. Link your BlueSky system to your Facebook page:
