Can I edit the Prescreen Survey? How?

Yes! You can edit and customize the Prescreen survey to best fit your needs in your screening process. To start, click on the "Hi [Your Name]" menu then select 'Settings' from the dropdown menu.

Select the "Hiring Steps" tab from the Settings page.

Next, click the 'SmartRank Survey's tab on the Hiring Steps page. Click on the name of the survey you would like to update.

Here, you'll be able to review the questions that are already on your Prescreen Survey. If you still want to proceed with editing, click the 'Edit' button in the top, righthand corner of the page.

After clicking "Edit" the Prescreen Survey will open and you will be able to make your changes. You can delete questions by clicking the 'Remove' button.

You can add questions by either using the bank on the lefthand side of the page or using the custom question field to create your own.

A question can also be marked as a "Knock-out", which means that if the candidate does not give the "right" answer, they will immediately score a 0% on the survey. (A great example of a knock-out question is asking if the applicant has a required degree or certification. i.e. I have received my Bachelors Degree.)

You can also customize the order of your survey questions by dragging and dropping into the order you prefer.

If you want to change the name of your Prescreen Survey, you can do so by editing the field at the top of the screen.

Make sure to click 'Save' when you are finished!
