Candidate settings

The feature to add custom details is not available for all the customers. You can contact your account manager to enable this option.

This section allows you to select the details that you want the candidate to provide before starting the test. 

By default, HackerEarth Assessment provides a list of the most common details that can be gathered by recruiters.

Configuring candidate settings

You can configure candidate settings in two scenarios:

  • When you are creating a test
  • When you have created and published a test (live tests)

Important: If you make changes to the candidate settings in a live test, then you will only be able to obtain the details of those candidates who start the test after you have saved the changes.
