Set Templates

On this page, scroll down to the Templates section. Click the Edit/Create Templates link to create templates to determine the type of references you would like to collect on each type of job requisition. This will then take you to the Templates section of Crosschq where you can build out the desired reference templates for your ATS. Select Create New Template. Enter the required information such as template name, add in an ATS Tag for that template if required, and create a description of the template. 

Within the Request Settings section, add in the position, select the appropriate survey, configure the number, and type of references you want to be associated with this request. Please note, the relationship type can either be specified or you can select any relationship type and let the candidate determine the type of reference. Additionally, you can add customized notes to each specific reference-request i.e., "Please provide a manager reference from X company."

From there, add in optional hiring manager information. Finally, you can create custom emails or text messages associated with each template by filling out the custom notifications section. When you are done, select Create Template and this will automatically be linked to your ATS. 


At any point, if you need to edit or delete a template select the three dots next to the template and you can manage from there. 


Back in the Lever admin facility, it's important to ensure that any job that you create contains the same tag—so that the template will match the job. In the figure below, you can see where to add the tag. Please note tags should be all lower case.
