Can I publish a template?

To publish a template, once you’ve built a template from scratch select ‘Publish to community’ and this will submit the template to the Zinc team to review. When you publish a template, your company logo and name will be visible to the public, along with the package name, checks, check criteria, and customised questions. The Zinc team will review your template before publishing it to the gallery and add an industry, country, regulation, as well as role level classification.

Candidate notes and notification subscribers will not be visible, nor will the people to whom the check package has been sent.

Can I modify a template?

Yes. Once you’ve selected a template, you can modify your check package by adding or removing checks. You can also further customise the criteria within some checks to make sure you meet your business requirements.

How do I select a template?

To select a template, simply select ‘Start with templates’ when creating a new check package. You’ll be able to choose from our selection of templates and filter templates based on location, regulation, industry, and job seniority level.
