Applicant Statuses - Create Custom Status and Include in Application Workflow

In order for the DDI integration status to be available to select for applicants, it is necessary to create a custom integration status in Manage Applicant Statuses. You will also need to include the assessment in the application workflow if you would like the assessment to be part of the application.

Enable Integration in Edge Integrate

In order to include DDI assessments in the application workflow or assign them via the Manage Applicants page, the integration must first be enabled via Edge Integrate.

On the Edge Integrate > Settings page, you will enter your client ID, assessment name, and assessment ID.

Instructions for enabling and configuring the integration are also available on the Setup tab of the integration in Edge.

Create Custom DDI Assessment Status

A custom assessment status is needed when assigning an assessment to an applicant outside of an application workflow (i.e. ad hoc assignment).

Note: The Assign Integration Assessment email trigger email will need to be configured in order for the applicant to receive an email. See Email Triggers for Recruiting.

  1. Navigate to Admin > Tools > Recruit > Applicant Statuses. Then, select the top level organizational unit (OU).
  2. Click Create Custom Status. This opens the Create Custom Status pop-up.
  3. Complete the following fields in the pop-up:
    • Language - If multiple languages are enabled for the portal, select the language from the drop-down list for which you are entering the status name and description. To localize the status name and description into other available languages, select the appropriate language from the drop-down list and enter the localized name and description in the appropriate fields.
    • Display Name - Enter the status name, which appears throughout the system. The character limit for this field is 50. When the display name of an active status is modified after the status is in use or has been used in a job requisition:
      • The new display name appears on the Default Status List page.
      • The new display name appears in the Status list on the job requisition template.
      • Any new job requisitions created after the display name is changed apply the new display name.
      • Job requisitions created before the status display name is changed continue to honor the name that existed at the time the requisition was created.
    • Description - Enter the status description. This should describe the purpose of the status and what is implied when an applicant is in that status. The character limit for this field is 500.
    • Type - Select Custom Integration from the drop-down. Note: This field is displayed only when creating a custom status at the top level OU. When creating a custom status for a child OU, the Type field displays the type selected for the parent OU but is not editable.
    • Integration - Select DDI Assessment from the drop-down.
    • Active - This field is checked by default. Ensure the field is checked before saving the status so that the status is active for the portal.
  4. Click Save to save the custom applicant status. Your new custom integration status will be visible in the list of statuses on the Manage Applicant Statuses page.

Assign Assessment

Recruiters can assign the assessment via Manage Candidates, Manage Applicants, or the Statuses tab of the Applicant Profile page.

Manage Applicants Deprecation: Cornerstone will be deprecating Manage Applicants with the April '21 Release. See Manage Applicants Overview.

Include Assessment in Application Workflow

The assessment can be included in the application workflow template so that it is considered a step in the application workflow process for applicants. See Application Workflow - Add Integration.
