2802881 - Search for Candidates Who Completed the Data Capture Form - Recruiting

  • Can't see the Data Capture Form to select it in the Candidate Search.

This is caused by a missing configuration in Career Site Builder. Please, follow the steps below to resolve:

IMPORTANT: The Data Capture Form Code will only be available in the Candidate Search after a candidate has created a candidate profile through that Data Capture Form.

Also note that the data is not retroactive so if a code is added to the DCF after candidates have already used it to create their profile, the search will only return the candidates created after the code was added.

  1. Admin Center > Manage Career Site Builder;
  2. Click on Pages > Landing;
  3. Create a new Landing Page and add the Data Capture Form component, or Edit an existent Landing Page;
  4. Click on the Data Capture Form Component;

  6. Click on Publish
