The Candidate Registration gives you the ability to configure your Advert Applications and Web Registrations. This enables you to set the fields that a candidate needs to complete before they can be registered onto your system.

You'll find both of these under Website > Candidate Registration for Professional and Enterprise versions only.


Web Registration

This is what a candidate will complete when they register on your website, without applying for a specific job.

You can ask as little or as many questions as you want but to get maximum value from a candidates registration we'd recommend including the following so that they can be picked up in potential matches and future job alerts:

  • Preferred Discipline & Location

  • Desired Salary and/or Rate

  • Create job alerts

  • Candidate Agreement

When setting up your web registration you can now enable the CAPTCHA option to stop spam registrations.

To enable the CAPTCHA you need to tick the box which will enable the CAPTCHA to show on the final page of the Registration.

This setting can only be enabled by a Super User, Marketing User or Sysadmin. For Basic, the Sysadmin is the only user able to enable the CAPTCHA.

When the candidate record is created you will not be able to edit the candidate’s profile, if there is a CV attached as part of the registration the edit button will be greyed out until the CV is parsed on our system, this should take no more than 10 minutes.

Advert Application

This is the registration form that candidates will complete when applying to a specific job you are advertising. Usually this application form will have fewer questions, as you don't need to ask about their preferred Disciplines, Locations and Salary information, as this is defaulted from the advert they apply to. You may want to include a cover note and a candidate agreement.

When setting up your Advert Applications you can now enable the CAPTCHA option to stop spam applications.

To enable the CAPTCHA you need to tick the box which will enable the CAPTCHA to show on the final page of the advert application.

This setting can only be enabled by a Super User, Marketing User or Sysadmin. For Basic, the Sysadmin is the only user able to enable the CAPTCHA.


Adding, deleting and sorting questions

To delete existing questions press on the red X (1) at the right hand side of the row. Edit a question using the edit button (2). To add a new question or change the order use the Add Question (4) and Sort buttons(3) as shown:

A pop up will appear prompting you to select the Data Field - this is the area within the candidate record that the information you want to gather relates to. For example, to ask a profile related question select Profile from as the data field and all the available profile related fields will appear in the next drop down.

Next, type in the question that you want your candidates to be asked and any extra information. Decide whether the question should be mandatory or not before you Save. You can continue this process until you have built up your registration questions, adding in blank rows to space each section out if you like. Use the Preview option to see what your registration process will look like before making it final.

Diversity recording

If you need to record candidate diversity contact support to switch this on. It'll then be available under the Registration Plugin.
