Masked Custom Fields


Masked field is a unique field type that you can select when creating a new custom field. Generally, the masked field type is reserved for fields that contain sensitive employee information that your organization will want to hide once the information is input into Greenhouse Onboarding. In this article, we will cover: 


Add Masked Custom Field 

To add a Masked Custom Field to Greenhouse Onboarding, click Settings on the navigation bar and select Custom Fields from the left-hand panel.



Click Screen_Shot_2019-01-11_at_10.53.14_AM.png in the header of a Field Group and select Add Field from the dropdown menu.


Use the subsequent dialog box to give the custom field a name, explanatory text, and/or rules. Select Masked Field from the Field Type dropdown menu.


When finished, navigate to the bottom of the dialog box and click Save and Close. Your masked custom field is added to your organization.


View and Edit Permissions on Masked Custom Fields

Once a value has been input into a masked custom field, the value will be anonymized from direct viewing. The value cannot be copied and pasted elsewhere, and regardless of a user's view and/or edit permissions the input value cannot be viewed.

Note: The only exception is that the values for masked custom fields will still populate in Custom Field Reports.


If a user is granted edit access to a masked custom field, they will be able to replace the value for the field but not reveal the original value in the field.
