Custom fields help you customise the structure of the information you store for your candidates. You can see custom fields values in the candidate profile, on Prospects page and can also run a search query through them. It can be used to store structured data on any entity inside Recruiterflow. 

Note: If you haven't created a custom field yet, you can do it by following the steps below:


Define a custom field.

Head over to settings in Recruiterflow and go to the custom fields section. Click on the new field button. 

You can choose from various types of fields.

Once you've defined the custom field, you will be able to edit the values on the candidate profile page. You can also change the order in which custom fields appear on the custom fields page.


Mapping a response of an application form question to a custom field.

Step 1:

To add a custom field value in an application form, head over to jobs in Recruiterflow and click on the edit option to open job setup and go to the application form section by clicking Application Form text at the top of the Job Edit screen.

Step 2:

Now when you are in the application form section, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the '+Add a question' icon. 

Step 3:

After clicking on that icon, you will see a pop-up to add a question in your application form. 

Define the text which you would like to see on the application form. This will be visible to the candidate on the application form. 

To map this response to a custom field, you need select the response type 'Select a custom field' from the drop-down list and then select the custom field type which you had just created in the above steps.

You can make the question mandatory or optional.
