How do I use the Form Builder when creating or editing a job opening?

You have many options when it comes to creating and editing the form that candidates will see when they apply for your job opening. Begin by creating or editing a job opening, then click on the FORM BUILDER tab of the Create New Opening or Edit Opening form.


Choose the type of field you want to add to your form from the TOOLBOX on the left-hand side of the screen. Click on the field with your mouse and drag the field onto the form layout on the right side of the screen. After you have placed the field, let go and configure the field attributes in the field's PROPERTIES box on the left side of the screen.


You can also change a field on your form by clicking on it. The field's PROPERTIES box will open on the left side of the screen.

You can change the label (or name) of the field, its description (instructions telling the candidate what you want him/her to enter into the field), and choose whether to make the field required (i.e. the candidate will be required to complete that field in order to submit the application). When you are finished editing the field, click the Done editing button.

Note that fields that are starred (i.e. Cover Letter and Attached Files fields) are required fields by default. You can edit their properties (label and description) and remove them from your form. However, if they are on your form, the candidate will be required to complete them.

The Attached Files field allows you to choose which types of files you permit the candidate to submit and the number of files you will accept. This field is only available if you choose the File Upload radio button in the FORM TYPE box.


To reorder the fields, simply click and drag a field to a new location on the form layout.


Click on the field and click the Delete field button in the field's PROPERTIES box.
