A custom question bank is a set of questions that you create for your own organization, tailored to your specific hiring needs. Creating the bank allows you to write the questions once, and then make them readily available to all of your recruiters, across as many of your positions and departments as you like. It’s a terrific way to standardize on questions, and to save a significant amount of time!
See ‘Creating a New Position’ for more information on adding questions to a position.
Note: To see the custom questions a user must have permissions to access or view that department (see ‘Departments’ for additional info).
Creating a Question Bank
1) Navigate to the ‘Settings’ homepage and find the ‘Custom Questions’ section on the far right. At the bottom there is the option to add questions to this bank for quick access during position setup.
2) Note that some questions may be specific to a department. In this case, hover over the department name and click the ‘eye’ icon to enter that department.
3) Once in a specific department, you will find the ‘Department [Name] Questions’ bank on the far right. Use the ‘Add’ feature at the bottom to customize your bank of questions, as you would if you were creating the custom bank at the company level.
4) Enter each question one at a time; as you hit “Add”, you’ll see them populate in the custom question bank. You can edit questions by hovering over them and clicking the “Edit” icon.
