Page Location: Admin > Codes > Requisition Reasons

These codes explain why a position is open and populate the Requisition Reasons drop-down list. To activate this field go to: Page Builder > Requisition > Miscellaneous  and enter the data label for the field Requisition Reason as the Users should see it. If the Requisition Reason field should be entered at the time the requisition is created, then add it to the Create Req Form  process.

If anyone who prints out the requisition form should see this information, add it to Print Req Form option.

User View: This field is located in the Requisition File > Main Page > Main Tab

Applicant View: This field is not displayed to the Applicant.

Import Code Key: WO
.csv file should contain Code & Description in that order.

Creating Codes:

Important Considerations:  Cyber Recruiter codes cannot contain certain symbols such as commas, quotes, periods, apostrophes or ampersands and the user will get an error message when trying to enter or import codes containing them. There are also certain character combinations that must be avoided because Cyber Recruiter is programmed to strip them (even if they are in the middle of a code or description) as they can be used by others to reference potentially dangerous procedures or scripts that could cause harm to your Cyber Recruiter system. These combinations include: SP_ or sp_ and XP_ or xp_. Also a double dash will be converted to a single dash. There are a few other combinations not listed here that could be stripped, but it is extremely unlikely that they would be used in codes or descriptions.

After clicking "Add new record." enter in the necessary information to create a new code.

Field Purpose
Code Unique Identifier for the drop-down option. This code is written in the raw data and is referenced to determine the description to show on the screen. If the code is removed from the Admin > Codes section, this value will still be in the Requisition file for reporting purposes unless the file is edited and saved after the code was deleted.
When importing data for Requisitions use this value and NOT descriptions for the import spreadsheets.
Description This is what is displayed on the screens and on the website for searching.

Inactivating Codes:

Requisition Reason codes can be inactivated. When the code is inactivated it will no longer be an option to select when updating the system or displayed in grouping/search options on the website. Inactive codes in search lists and reports inside Cyber Recruiter will be segmented so all active codes appear first and then inactive codes appear under a header ---Inactive---

To inactivate a code, edit the code and check mark the option for 'Inactive'.
