Understand forms for Zoho Recruit

Understand forms for Zoho Recruit modules

You can create forms for the modules in Zoho Recruit. The data that your users submit through these forms is directly added to the selected module. This eliminates the need to write scripts to integrate with your Zoho Recruit modules and enables you to seamlessly add data to them.

Creating forms for Zoho Recruit modules

  • Currently, you can create forms for the following Zoho Recruit modules: Candidates, Contacts, Clients, and Job Openings
  • You can create one form per module. Learn how
  • Currently, you cannot create forms for custom modules in your Zoho Recruit

When you create a form for a module, the module's mandatory fields are automatically added to the form. For example, if you create a form for the Candidates module, the Last Name field will be added automatically. You will not be allowed to delete these fields from the form as they are mandatory in Zoho Recruit.

The field palette displays all the fields in the selected module. You can add the required fields to your form, and rearrange them in the required order. Learn about the form builder for a Zoho Recruit module.

Features and capabilities

When you're collaborating with users in an app, it is not enough to just enable them to submit data. You need to ensure that the data they are submitting is valid. Zoho Creator offers a wide range of options which you can use to define what happens right from the moment a user accesses a form in your app, to what happens after a user submits the form.

Controlling form entries

You may use the following provisions to control and restrict the entries your users submit through your form:

On successful form submission

  • You can show your users a message
  • You can enable your users to receive an email notification that can include the data they submitted
  • You can redirect your users to a website or a component (form, report, or page) in your app

Customizing form's appearance

You can customize your form's appearance using the following:

Viewing the submitted data

You can create list reports for the modules in your Zoho Recruit. This allows your users to view the data in your Zoho Recruit without having to separately access it.


  • The Role hierarchy will not be applicable for the integrations forms. So anyone who has access to integration report will have access to all the data irrespective of their role. For eg: If a user has 'View' permission then they can view all the data.
  • The Delete option will not be available for the integration report records.
  • The connection for the integration form with the external service will be only through the admin's Zoho Recruit account.
