In this article you can read about the basic setup of a recruitment template. When there are several recruitment templates, when creating a new job or new talent pool, you have to choose from:
1. Go to "Templates" via "Settings" in the main menu and click on "Recruitment", and chose whether you want to create a template for job or talent pool
In this article, we will create a new job template. The procedure for creating a new template for a talent pool is basically the same, but with minor differences, which are described below.
2. Click on "New job template"
... or mark and edit an existing template
3. Choose if it is a template for a job or talent pool and click on "Continue"
A recruitment template is divided into these four tabs, which are further described:
- Application form
NOTE! When you are creating a new template for talent pools, the "Details" tab should not be filled.
Under this tap you can change the following:
Language: Should the template be created in multiple languages? It is possible if there are multiple languages associated with your account.
Title: Give the template a title that is used internally when choosing which job template you want to use when creating a new job.
Tags: Add tags, e.g. sales, marketing or similar. All candidates who apply for the job with this template will have the tags added to their profile. This can also be added when the job is created.
Job ad: You can select an ad template for the job. If you do not choose one you can write your own ad or select an ad template when creating a job.

NOTE! When you are creating a new template for a talent pool, you do not have the option to select an ad template due to the fact that there is no ad text for a talent pool.
Application form: Choose which application form to use for this template when a candidate should apply for the job with you.
