Create a Landing Page

Updated by Amy Thomas

To customise your candidates' testing experience, you can create a landing page that displays when a candidate opens the testing link.

Please note that only one landing page can be associated with each job. If you are using an application form in the same job with testing, the landing page will be the same for candidates accessing the application form and the assessment invitation.

Create a Landing Page

  1. Click Manage in the top navigation bar, then click “Landing Pages”.
  2. Click the "Create Landing Page" button.
  3. Enter a name for your landing page and a custom Welcome Message if you like.
  4. If you would like to include Additional Instructions for the candidates, enter those into the text box. These additional instructions will appear beneath the Welcome Message.

Here’s some example text we created to help you get started:

Thanks for taking the time to complete our recruitment process. We use assessments to give our candidates the opportunity to demonstrate their unique strengths and characteristics, which are relevant for the role, in an objective and unbiased way.

To get the most from this experience, please complete all assessments alone, openly and honestly. Make sure you are somewhere quiet and free from distractions so you can perform to your full potential. Later stages of the recruitment process may probe these results to help us further understand your capabilities and preferences.

We understand traditional recruitment assessments may be limiting for some individuals. If you have particular needs, please discuss the options for reasonable adjustments with your recruitment contact before taking the assessments.

  1. If you would like to add an additional image to this page, click the “source code” button to add the html code for the image.

In our example, we’ve added a logo and an image to our landing page.

The html code below allows the system to centre the image and then resizes it to be suitable on mobile and desktop.




<td style="width: 200px;">&nbsp;</td>

<td style="width: 300px;"><a href=""><img src="" alt="Criteria logo" width="300" /></a></td>

<td style="width: 200px;">&nbsp;</td>





In line 5, you will need to change the following sections in red font to suit your needs.

<td style="width: 300px;"><a href=""><img src="" alt="Criteria logo" width="300" /></a></td>

There is no set size limit on images as the image will adjust automatically depending on the size of your candidate's screen. However, we recommend using images approximately 200px wide by 100px high, particularly for your logo image.

  1. You can also adjust the colours of the texts to match your organisation's style guide. Click the “Choose color” button for each item you want to change and select the colour to use.

You can select the colour by clicking on the colour chart or by entering the exact Hex or RGB code for the colour. We recommend using the Hex or RGB code if your organisation has a style guide that includes specific colours.

  1. Click "Save".

Setting a Default Landing Page

You will be able to select this landing page to display to your candidates by default for new jobs only or for both new and existing jobs.

  1. Click “Landing Pages” in the dropdown menu under Manage.
  2. Click … (More Actions) next to the custom landing page you created and select “Make Default”.
  1. Choose to make this the default landing page for new jobs only or for both new and existing jobs. Note that if you select the second option, all active jobs will be updated to use the new default landing page.

Setting the Landing Page per Job

If you only want some of your existing jobs to use the new landing page, you can edit each job individually.

  1. In the job, click the Settings wheel in the top right corner.
  1. Scroll down to “Candidate Experience” and click Edit next to Branding.
  1. Select your custom landing page from the dropdown list and click Save.

When your candidates click on the link in their invitation email, your custom landing page is the first page they will see. Use your organisation's style guide to create a page that emphasises your branding through the use of colour and images.
