SHaRe Tool

Overview

The purpose of the SHaRe Tool is to enable the creation of Canvases for the Recruitment, Human Resource or the Performance Management solutions (when it is released). The primary use in Recruitment is for the gathering of information on Applicants. SHaRe canvases are created and linked to a Vacancy, so that applicants can respond and submit answers to questions. Scoring can be assigned for answers to questions in the SHaRe canvas, so that applicants are given a score which can be used to rank the applicants and then process them. Canvas Questions can have a flow to either another question or page, which allows for an efficient process for getting information from applicants. Please note that to link the ShaRe Canvas to a Vacancy, you need to access the relevant Vacancy and then select the canvas in the drop-down field, Link Questionnaire. Please see Vacancy Information for more details.
