Let's talk about the: Extended Candidate Profile feature.
The Extended Candidate Profile feature was created so that you can customize the candidate's profile, allowing you to insert additional question fields alongside the ones that already exist: personal information, education, and professional experience etc.
Let's say that one of your position requirements is to have a driver's license. Now you'll be able to add a field on your candidate's profile, asking them to answer whether they have a driver's license or not.
We'll show you step-by-step how to use this new feauture!
First, go to "Settings" --> "Extended Candidate Profile":
By clicking on the "+" button: you'll be able to create the different candidate extended profiles.
In the pop-up screen that will open next:
1. You should give a name to your Extended Candidate Profile

You can create up to 5 questions that will appear in the candidate's profile for them to answer. You can create open questions (Text), Multiple Choice, Checkboxes, or questions requesting a number type answer.
