Your ability to see, use and create questionnaires will depend on your user type and access rights within the ATS.

  • Campaign planning
    For recording job related information such as budget, reasons for advertising.

  • Shortlisting
    This could be used for recording more detailed information as to why you are shortlisting a candidate.
  • CV feedback

  • Interview feedback

  • Offer
    Use this to record details about the offer you are making to a candidate.
  • Referral
    This type of questionnaire should be used to track and record who has referred a candidate.
  • Onboarding
    This questionnaire will only be available if you use our onboarding software as part of your contract with Tribepad.  It has many purposes however an example may be setting up questions to ensure all candidate onboarding requirements have been fulfilled before their start date.
  • Integrations with third parties
    Tribepad also allows the integration with a number of 3rd party organisations that offer personality and behavioral style questionnaires.

Our questionnaires also allow you to automate certain actions based around any scoring criteria that you may have aligned to the questions that make up your questionnaire (e.g. If a candidate scores less than X they will be automatically rejected from the recruitment process).

The first step in creating a questionnaire is to prepare your questions, please take a look at our individual articles on questions types.
