The field configuration tool allows you to create any field you'd like in your Candidates, Contacts, Jobs, Company records & Placements.

Custom fields can be used to store information for which Vincere doesn’t have a default field. For example, if you recruit for an industry where Candidates need to meet certain compliance requirements in order to be considered for a role, custom fields can be a great way of recording whether the Candidate is compliant. Or, if you want to record how much experience a Candidate has in a particular Job function – for example, the amount of time that’s passed since they received a particular professional qualification – you could store this information inside a custom field.

Custom fields are then fully searchable in both Boolean and Advanced Search. This can ensure that the wrong people aren’t accidentally shortlisted for a Job or added to a mailing list.
