Requisition and Applicant Preferences - Applicant Custom Fields

The Applicant Custom Fields section enables administrators to add User Record custom fields. User Record custom fields are created and managed in the User Record section of Custom Field Administration. Fields that are added to the Applicant Custom Fields section display on the Custom Fields tab of the Applicant Profile Snapshot page.

Note: The visibility of the Applicant Custom Fields section is controlled by a backend setting. To enable this section to display, contact Global Customer Support.

To access Requisition and Applicant Preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Recruit > Requisition and Applicant Preferences.

To add a field:

  1. Click the Add icon to the right of the section name. This opens the Select Applicant Custom Field pop-up.

You can create a new custom field from within the Select Applicant Custom Field pop-up. To create a new custom field, click New Custom Field in the pop-up. This opens the Custom Field Administration > User > Define Field page. See User Record and Self Registration Custom Fields.
