About Creating Requisitions

In Personic WebBench, creating a new requisition is as simple as clicking a button and filling in a few fields. Personic WebBench enables you to create a requisition in one of three ways:

Using Existing Requisitions or Templates

To use templates in Personic WebBench, the template feature must be enabled on your system.

About Using Existing Requisitions or Templates

Clicking the From Existing or From Template buttons on the Requisition Main page brings up a Requisition Search page. This page enables you to search for the proper requisition or template on which to base the new requisition. Creating requisitions from existing ones is useful when you want to base a new requisition on one previously created, when you know much or most of the information will be the same, or when a position is too rare to merit its own template. You can create your own templates for positions for which you need to hire repeatedly and store them to use later. Once you've chosen the template or existing requisition, the procedure for filling in any blank fields is the same as for filling a blank form.

Once you've saved a new requisition, its assigned recruiter receives an alert within Personic Workflow. This alert lets the recruiter know to start seeking approval for the requisition. By default, all newly created requisitions have a status of Pending. New requisitions retain their Pending status until they are approved and a recruiter changes their status to Open. You can still make changes to Pending requisitions. You can also cancel a Pending requisition. Once a requisition's status changes to Open, however, you can no longer make changes to or cancel it within Personic WebBench. Pending requisitions are visible only to the hiring manager who created them.

Once a requisition's status changes to Open, it can only be changed or canceled within Personic Workflow.

Creating Templates

About Creating Templates

To create a template

  1. Create a new requisition, either from a blank form or from an existing requisition, as described in "To create a new requisition from a blank form" and "To create a new requisition from an existing one."
  2. Before saving the requisition, in the Requisition field enter a name or number for the template starting with TEMP.
  3. Click the Save Changes button.

About Creating Templates

You can create a template in exactly the same way you create a new requisition, with this difference: before saving a template, you must be certain its name starts with the letters TEMP. When you click the Create from Template button in the Requisition stage, Personic WebBench uses the initial text string TEMP to search for templates in the database. Note that TEMP must be the first four letters in the requisition name for Personic WebBench to consider the requisition a template; no other letters, numbers, or characters may precede them. Personic WebBench does not use a case-sensitive search when looking for these letters, however, so they may be any combination of uppercase and lowercase: Temp, temp, and teMp will all work.
