The question related to this code table is generally used with customized application processes only, although it can be enabled for Users to capture this information internally or as an Application question for returning applicants to complete in the Self Service module separate from the application process.

To enable this field for internal use go to Admin > Page Builder > Applicant > Miscellaneous  and enter a caption for the US Work Status field.  To enable the question for Returning Applicants go to Admin > Website > Career Portal > Self Service Tab  and click the pencil to edit the Application Questions page. 

User View:  This field appears in the Applicant File > Application Page if enabled. 

Applicant View:  This field/question will appear on the Application Questions Page if enabled.

Import Code Key: USWS
.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 Applicant or Requisition file for reporting purposes unless the file is edited and saved after the code was deleted.
When importing data for applicants or 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

US Work status 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 if using the standard Application Question connected to this drop-down value. 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'.
