Custom Application Field is a dynamic feature in Skillate which allows recruiters to define fields that they want to capture through a candidate’s application. To capture custom information through these fields, they have to be included in the application configuration for career page, referral, agency, and internal job posting.


For configuring the application fields, follow the below steps:


  1. Go to Settings > General Configuration > Custom Fields > Application Fields.

  2. Click on Create New.

  3. In the following pop-up, add a title, description (optional).

  4. Choose a type for the new application field from the drop-down menu.

  5. The placeholder will be auto-filled as per the title you are providing.

  6. Check the box to link this to the candidate’s field as well.
    By doing so, the value that is entered for the field will be available to view from the Candidate About Page.


  1. Click on Add to complete the process.


Upon adding the custom application field, you can click on more options for editing or disabling the respective field. You can enable back the field anytime by clicking on more options provided for the field.
