Learn how to use placeholders for the resume templates

Updated over a week ago

Placeholders allow you to create resumes with the actual information from your candidate's card in the order and with the data you need. Thus, you can download PDF versions of resumes to share with customers or interviewers, hiding salary expectations, last name or other candidate data.

For placeholders, we use the open source Liquid library from Shopify. More details and documentation can be found here.

Special fields for the candidate

Standard fields were not enough and you have already created additional fields for your company? For example, is the candidate actively looking for a job or does he have a driver's license? You can safely use these fields in the file created by the system!

First you need to find the UUID of the field. Go to the "Candidate fields" section and click edit opposite the name of the field you need.

Just copy the string and add it to the placeholder using the following template:

{{candidate.custom_##}} - Placeholder for custom fields,

where ## is the UUID of the custom field.

For example, for the field specified on the template, the placeholder looks like this:
