What is Question Template Library?

Building great job application questionnaires is now a breeze. The Question Templates allow recruiters to create standard questions that can be easily used in campaigns. Having pre-created questions makes building Campaign Questions quick and easily. The Question Templates also gives recruiters a view of all questions available, and ensure that questions are mapped to the correct Candidate Attributes without overlaps, which can mess up the candidate data.

  • Map the candidate response to a candidate attribute/data point

  • Click Save

💡 If a candidate attribute you needed is not on the list, you can create them from the Candidate Attribute settings. Click here to know how.

❓Why do I need to use data mapping?

Data mapping saves the candidate's responses under 'Other Information' on their candidate profile. From the main Leads Page, you can easily search and filter your candidates according to these data points/attributes. It will be very useful in AutoFlow, as you can use these as triggers and criteria for automated processing. The same goes if you have other systems you'd like to integrate into Talkpush. Furthermore, it is much easier to view the responses and use them as a basis during their interview.

- Yes you can. After selecting the template, edit it and change the candidate data mapping.

4. Can I sort questions on the question template page?
- Yes, you can sort them alphabetically and by data map.

5. I have 2 similar questions, but different candidate attributes are linked. Are they merged on this question template library?

9. Can I add duplicate questions on the campaign questionnaire?

- You can't add the same question template twice in your campaign questionnaire. But you can create the same custom question using + Create New. We strongly advice checking the questions to make sure there are no duplicates for the best candidate experience.
