Resolution

If a question needs to be asked of all candidates, like a regulatory compliance question, then it should be used in the application question rather than a screening question.

Screening questions are good for job-specific questions as they can be adjusted each time you create a job requisition.

Screening Questions:

  • Can be set to be disqualifier questions
  • Must be added to each requisition
  • Cascading questions are supported
  • Can vary by job

Application Quesitons:

  • Cannot be set as a disqualifer questions
  • Are in the XML template, so questions are presented to all candidates
  • Cascading questions are not supported
  • Can be designated to only appear internally or externally, or can vary by country of job requisitsion (Overrides)
