By linking a custom job post question to a custom field on a candidate's profile, your organization can capture candidate responses to these questions in a structured format that is searchable and reportable.
In this article, we will cover how to create a new application question on a job post and link it to a custom application field so responses to the question will populate in the appropriate field on the candidate's profile.
With a custom field already created, navigate to the Job Posts under Job Setup (Jobs > Select Job > Job Setup > Job Posts).
Select a job post from the list and click the Edit icon beside the job post name.
From the Edit Your Job Post page, scroll to the Custom Application Questions section and click Add Custom Question.
From the Add a Question box, pose a question and provide a description. Select a privacy setting, and whether a response to the question should be required.
From the Answers dropdown, select Link answers to a custom field on a candidate's profile. Select a custom application or candidate field from the secondary dropdown menu.
Click Add when finished.
On the Edit Your Job Post page, the new custom application question will indicate that it is linked to a custom application field.
