You have created a draft for an opportunity but for whatever reason you can not mark the opportunity open?
This is a little overview of the most common problems and a sort of checklist that you can use when you are facing this issue.
So let's get started:
One of the most common problems is that people are forgetting to add an Opportunity Manager.
This is a basic requirement to open an opportunity because we would not want Exchange Participants to apply for Opportunities that no one is taking care of, right?
2. EXPA position
Only MC members or postions within the MC team structure (MCVPs and NST) are allowed to mark opportunities open. This step is to make sure no wrong information will go online on the Youth Opportunity Portal before the approval of your MC team. Kindly ask your respective MCVP to help you in this matter.
3.Issues with fields
Sometimes EXPAv2 will tell you that you filled out all necessary fields although you didn´t. (This is also the case for the Opportunity Manager). These are some fields that people often forget about:
Salary and Periodicity:
Please make sure you fill out not only the amount but also the currency and the Periodicity (Weekly/Monthly/Yearly).
Besides making sure to fill it out be aware that the Organization Branch could be created with a different name then the original name of the Organization.
Please also make sure the information for the Organization Branch is filled out and up to date.
You are able to choose a location from Google Maps but please make sure you choose the right location by double checking after you saved the information for the opportunity.
