The field format section can only configure text type candidate fields from SmartRecruiters.
This format allows for the definition of an input mask.
The following syntax must be used:
Letters AND numbers for a field as long as you respect the two statements above.
For example, for a social security number format:
Create a custom TEXT candidate field in SmartRecruiters
Enter the desired input mask: 999-99-999 for instance
- , ( ) [ ] <space>
The use of [ ] is special. It makes the numbers or letters inside it optional.
(999) 99 999: the candidate must type 8 numbers. The parenthesis and spaces will be added automatically and sent into SmartRecruiters.
(99) 999 : the candidate must type 5 numbers. 3 additional numbers can be entered. The parenthesis and spaces will be added automatically and sent into SmartRecruiters. The "[" and "]" symbols will not be sent to SmartRecruiters nor be displayed on the candidate facing form.
999-AAA-99: the candidate must enter 3 digits, 3 letters and 2 digits. The "-" will be added automatically and sent to SmartRecruiters.
