We're excited to share a comprehensive update that introduces a range of new features and improvements, including mandatory 'Form Type' fields in Assessment Forms, enhanced Pre-Assessment questions and additional configuration options for Direct Apply Application Forms.


These changes aim to provide you with more control and flexibility, ensuring that you can make the most out of our platform. Whether you're interested in customising your assessment forms or optimising your application templates, this guide will walk you through all the new functionalities.


These features all go live in JTGO from 11th October 2023.

Changes to Assessment Forms

What is it: A new field called ‘Form Type’ has been added to this page to streamline the creation process – JTGO will automatically populate it with 'pre-assessment form (Killer questions).'

  • After choosing the ‘Form Type’, this will control which section it will display against in the Add a Job: Assessment page.  So, when adding/editing a job, the appropriate forms will display against the appropriate lookup field.

Pre-Assessment / Killer Questions

What is it: When the Form Type is ‘Pre-Assessment / Killer Questions’ then JTGO will provide the following question types:

  • The question types available will be limited to: ‘Multi-Choice (One Answer)’ or ‘Multi-Choice (More than one answer)’
  • We’ve added validation so users are prompted to provide at least 2 multi-choice options
  • Validation has also been added to prompt users to indicate at least one correct answer
  • When adding a new question from the Question Bank, it will only display and allow the addition of Multi Choice / Multi Select questions where correct answers have already been included

Direct Apply application form changes (Equal Opps)

What is it: within Settings > Application Templates > Direct Apply Application Form, we’ve added a new tab called ‘Equal Opps’ to configure.

  • Any Equal Opps questions configured here will be included as questions for applicants who apply via Indeed Direct Apply
  • Custom fields will be available to add into the application form in the same way as normal application forms - however the questions will be limited to only those question types that are compatible with Indeed Direct Apply. These are: Text, Multi-Choice (One Answer), Multi-Choice (More than one answer) or Date fields.
  • These questions will be switched off by default when this is launched.
Equal opportunities questions remain optional. If you don’t need to record equal opportunities information against all applications, you can leave the Equal Opps section of the Direct Apply Application Form blank by not enabling any questions.

If no questions are activated in the Equal Opps section of the Direct Apply application form, candidates won't be required to provide this information.
  • Candidates’ responses to the Equal Opps questions will be saved against the Equal Opps section in the application form.  Depending on your system configuration, this will be accessed within the ‘More’ menu or the Application Form kebab menu of candidates’ application records.
  • Existing Security Role controls will still apply, so only those users with access to view Equal Opps will be able to see the candidates’ responses.
  • Equal Opps responses from Direct Apply applications will be reflected in standard Equal Opps reports and dashboard graphical displays.
  • If your platform is configured for Equal Opps questions to trigger indicator icons against candidates, the icon will display based upon the Direct Apply application responses (e.g. two ticks or disability icons can be triggered from the Direct Apply application).

Indeed Direct Apply changes to screening questions

What is it: When a job is advertised that includes Killer Questions / Pre-Assessment questions, the job-specific pre-assessment form questions are now included in the screening questions sent to Indeed.

  • The order in which the questions will display to applicants on Indeed will be:
    1. Direct Apply application form
    2. Pre-assessment/killer questions
    3. Equal Opps questions
  • All killer/pre-assessment form questions are mandatory
  • Pre-Assessment pass/fail icons will display for against all candidates on the candidate listing page

  • The search/filter menu allows users to filter by pre-assessment form pass/fail, including Indeed Direct Apply applications
