When conducting candidate reviews, it's generally good practice to structure them in a way that creates consistency from candidate to candidate. There are various methods that can be used to facilitate this including interview scripts and standardized sets of questions.

Review templates in Polymer exist as a flexible way to create reusable content that can be utilized while providing feedback on a candidate.

Creating a review template

Review templates can be created by any type of user within the organization. They are created and managed within App settings from the Review templates section. For users who are not an Owner or an Admin, the App Settings page appears slightly different, but the Review Templates tab is still available.

From there you can see a list of all previously created review templates. You can drag-and-drop items in the list to reorder them. The order displayed will affect the order they are listed when selecting one for user.

You can create a new template by clicking the Add a template button. A modal will display, allowing you to input content for the template.

Input a title and add content, then click Create template to save it.

Your new template will then be visible in the list and available for use by other users within your organization.

Updating or deleting a template

Options for managing a template are accessible via the three dot dropdown menu for the corresponding template.

The Edit template option will open a modal, allowing you to make changes to the title and content. The Delete template option will permanently remove the template from the list.

Using review templates

When a user conducts a candidate review, they can easily insert content from review template into their draft. This is done by clicking the Insert template button within the editor.

A modal will display allowing the user to select a review template and preview the content.

Clicking select template will add the content of the template to the current review document.

The content is fully editable allowing for it to be modified, deleted, or further built upon. Additional templates can be inserted as well.

Review templates in Polymer are built to be a highly-flexible system that allow for feedback outlines, modular question sets, and other reference content to be used across all your hiring efforts.
