Requisition Questions

Page Location: Requisition File > Requisition Questions

Req Questions Page displays the specific questions about a requisition. Questions can only be added to a Requisition File, they cannot be developed from this page. Contact the Administrator if there are additional questions that should be available. Typical groups of questions are as listed below:

- Pre-Qualifications Questions are usually Public and Required because they are questions the applicant answers when applying for a position. These kinds of questions aim at getting more information about a specific skill set/experience level. Users might have a general group called ‘Pre-Qualification Questions’ to choose from or set up several more smaller and specific groups by category.

- Interview Questions/Phone Screen Questions are usually not Public and Required because they are questions to be asked later in the process. By adding them here, the questions become available within the Applicant File > Application Page for answers to be captured per requisition attached to the applicant. Example, the applicant applies to a position, and the interview is done. Six months later, the applicant applies to another position and the interview is done for that one as well. The questions/answers can be kept separate from one another. 

The Groups drop-down list not only filters the view to a particular group, if a group is selected prior to the clicking Add new record, it filters available questions to that group. The All Groups option displays everything.
