Creating a Questionnaire from Scratch

Then, select a question type from the dropdown menu.

You can choose between the following question types:

  • Essay Question – Short
  • Essay Question – Long
  • Yes / No Question
  • Multiple Choice Question – Multiple Answers
  • Multiple Choice Question – Single Answer

Type your question into the space provided.

If you selected a Multiple Choice question, you will need to include the answers to the question.

If you need to add additional questions, click the + Add Question button. You can add as many questions to each questionnaire as you would like.

Knockout Questions

If you add a Multiple Choice or Yes/No question, you will have the option of making it a Knockout Question.

Knockout questions allow you to automatically disqualify candidates that select a certain answer for that question. 

To select your knockout answer, click the boxing glove next to the question.

The selected boxing glove will turn blue. This will be the knockout answer.

Anytime a candidate selects this answer, they will automatically be moved to the Rejected stage of your pipeline.
