Creating Custom Cards and Fields

Top Echelon Recruiting Software gives you the ability to create unlimited custom fields for People, Company, and Job Order records. Most of these custom field types are directly searchable, with the exception of text block fields.

Custom fields can be created in the following formats: text, date, drop-down, multi-select, numeric, or text block.

Please note:

  • These are always manual entry fields (will not be parsed)
