We have revamped our candidate forms creation process and have introduced a new tab within Settings > Job Setup > Forms. 
The Forms tab now contains all the forms currently available on the platform: Job Forms, Internal Forms, and Candidate Forms.  
All the form creation part happens from the Forms tab. Further, you can map these forms to a Round in Job Hiring Plan. Read more.

Exceptional Salary Approval

We have added an option to set a step on the offer approval chain as Exceptional Salary Approval.

The Offer Approval Chain Configuration in the Settings and within a Job has a toggle button to enable or disable the 'Exceptional Salary Approval'.

If it is toggled ON, and the offered salary for the candidate is greater than the job's salary range (Job > About > Salary Range) → Skillate will notify the users in the 'Exceptional Salary Approval' step along with the other users. The criteria "All needs to Approve/Reject" or "Only one needs to Approve/Reject" will be applied as per the existing format irrespective of enabling 'Exceptional Salary Approval' or not.
Source Analytics We've brought in a bunch of changes. Read more. New Organization Settings (below Job Settings): 1. Exceptional Salary Approval: If it is toggled ON, you will get the feature enabled at your Offer Approval Configuration Page. 2. Job Description can be made mandatory by specifying the minimum number of words that needs for the description.
