Applicant Tracking has added an Application Formatting option to its Build/Apply Form to improve the experience for candidates as they fill out applications. Application Formatting provides recruiters with two options to add clarity and context to their application.
The first, Field Grouping, lets recruiters group questions/fields that relate to each other into larger categories, such as “Personal Information” and “Relevant Work Experience.”
The second, Text Box, lets recruiters add customizable text boxes to questions in the application form. These text boxes can be added to questions to provide more context around the questions, clarify the question further or add any necessary disclaimers.
How do these features benefit job seekers? Text Box provides clarity and context around questions for job applicants, eliminating confusion and frustration. Field Grouping lets recruiters break up questions into broader sections, making it easier for applicants to read and digest large amounts of information.
How these features benefit recruiters? By giving job applicants a better user experience, recruiters are less likely to see applicant drop off.
Where can I find these features? You’ll find the Application Formatting under the Build an Apply Form when you go to Create a Requisition. See the screenshot below.
How do I activate these features? There’s no need! These enhancements occurred the week of August 8, 2016 in all systems of Applicant Tracking that are Version 4.0 or higher. Please contact support if you have questions.
