A casting director is able to modify their casting notice after it is published if necessary. You might need to make a variety of changes such as make edits, expire a notice, extend a notice, or hide the existence of your notice. This article will detail how to accomplish these tasks.
In your Casting Dashboard you will find the title of your casting notice and the 'Edit' option to the right of it. Click on Edit and you will now be able make changes to the notice.
Changing any detail largely follows the same process as the original posting (make the edit and then hit 'Update Casting Call').
For instance, say that you want to change the time of the audition that you have listed on the notice. You would scroll down to the Auditions section, and click on the 'Edit Location/Auditions' button.
A popup window will appear. Make the necessary changes to the auditions, and then click on the blue 'Save' button at the bottom of the window.
Once the change is made, you'll need to click on the blue 'Update Casting Call' button on the right side of the screen (also located at the bottom of the casting call), in order for the changes to take effect.
Prematurely Expiring a Casting Notice
If you find that you have cast your project ahead of time, you may want to expire it early. This can be done by editing your notice and clicking 'Expire your Listing'.
First go to your Casting Dashboard, and click Edit next to the notice you want to expire:
Then you'll go to the right side of the page and click 'Expire your Listing':
You'll then see the verification page, making sure you want to expire this listing. Click OK :
It will then be listed as (Expired) on your Casting Dashboard:
If you go to "View Job", the notice is now expired and can no longer be applied to.
Extending a Casting Notice
Conversely, you may find you need more time to cast your project. You can also extend the expiration date. This would be accomplished in the much the same manner as above. The only difference being that you move the date forward to the desired date.
Boosting a Casting Notice
If you want to increase your casting notice's visibility, you may do so simply by going to your Casting Dashboard, clicking Edit next to your current project, and then selecting the Boost option at the top of the page. Please note that your notice needs to have been running for at least 5 days. The cost is $24.95.
Hiding a Notice
When a notice expires, it can often still be seen in Google searches which may be undesirable for you. If you find this to be the case with your casting notice, you can contact the Casting Department at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask them to hide the notice for you. This will remove it from Google search results. Please note that it can sometimes take 2 weeks for results to disappear from the Google cache.
Cloning a Notice (Reviving an Expired Notice)
If you have an expired notice that you wish to revive, you would first select the expired notice in your account's Casting Dashboard by selecting Edit next to the expired project title.
Once you are on the Edit Your Listing page, you can make any changes you wish to your notice and then select the Clone Job button, which is the last option on the upper right column of your screen. You will then be asked to click Clone from the pop-up screen.
Once you have done this, you may then select Clone Job.
