Skillate allows your organization to create custom fields to capture varied information through multiple forms/sources. For each field, you define a placeholder which can be used at different places to gather information.
For example, your organization wants to capture candidate’s data such as payslip, relieving letter, languages spoken etc. These data can then be sourced through multiple points or forms like careers page, referral modal, chabot screening etc. For Skillate, to know the kind and type of information to be captured from different sources, the recruiter first needs to define custom fields at the organizational level.
Skillate provides you with an option to configure 3 types of Custom Field:
- Application Field
These fields assist in capturing a candidate’s information through their application form. These can be configured in career page, referral, agency etc.
Note : An application field can also be attached to a candidate field. This ensures that irrespective of any data coming from different candidate applications of the same candidate, the candidate field will hold the latest information received.
- Job Field
These help you define fields that need to be filled while creating a new job. For example, at the time of creating a new job, you may require information such as the reason for creating this job, reporting manager, job expiry etc.
- User Field
This lets you define the additional information you want to have on each user’s profile.
Here’s how to navigate to Custom Fields in Skillate:
Go to Settings > Custom Fields. The Custom Fields page includes 3 tabs- Application, Job and User to configure the respective fields.
While creating a new field, you can choose the type from the drop-down menu. Skillate lets you assign a type from a wide spectrum of choices such as single-line text, paragraph, single select, multi-select, date, number, attachment, etc.
