Reference Questions

Last Updated:
by Wendy Halley

Assemble includes a default set of six reference questions. These can be viewed, re-ordered, edited, deleted or new questions added as required.

Reference questions are in multi-line text format only and apply to all role profiles across the organisation.

Add question

Added questions are visible immediately on any new reference forms but will not be shown on historical (completed) forms.

Questions appear on the form in the order displayed on the Reference Questions settings screen so you should drag questions into the order you require.


Once you've started using Assemble for recruitment, you should only edit questions to correct spelling or grammar mistakes. Before you implement Assemble, you can edit these freely.

Changing the meaning of a question will also change the questions for any completed forms meaning that the references you've already received will no longer reflect the questions the referees were presented with.


Deleting a question hides it from all future forms but leaves existing answers intact on reference forms. You will be prompted to confirm as this action cannot be reversed.
