What’s Covered


How Standard Data Validation works

Formatting Validation

The validation includes auto-formatting of the input to improve first-time input accuracy. The field will validate that the input meets formatting and checksum requirements. The applicant can copy/paste the required input into the field.

Universal Support

Social Security Number (SSN) and Tax Identification (Tax ID) validations are available across a select number of countries as shown below. The fields will still accept data from other countries but not validate them.

Important Notes

  1. The title for the SSN and Tax ID questions once added depends on the country of the job opening. For example, if you are adding the SSN question to a job opening in Germany, the question will be localized to Sozialversicherungsnummer. 
  2. The data keys, answer type, validation, and security (as highlighted below respectively) are pre-set and cannot be changed. Adding_Standard_Data_Validation_questions_4a.png
  3. If you make a question required, the applicant will not be able to proceed with the application unless they enter valid answers/data to these questions. If the answer is not valid, they will receive an error message prompting them to attempt again.
