How is the password created for the candidate?



The Candidate Profile and the Job Application are created using the Standard OData API of SuccessFactors. A password is not yet generated when the Candidate/Application are created via the Quick Apply. The generation of the password must be initiated by the candidate themselves through clicking on the mail sent out by SF upon successfully creating the Candidate Profile via the Quick Apply. To do this, we direct the candidate to the standard password reset function, which the candidate can use to (re)set their password. In the attached screenshot you can see an example of how the e-mail sent to the candidate could look.


We recommend to include the following:

  1. URL to the customer's career page
  2. Username (email address of the candidate)
  3. Password reset link through which the candidate can set their password


Can the candidates manage/delete their own data via the profile, is this still possible?



Managing/deleting your own data via the profile is still possible. To do this, the candidate can log in via the SuccessFactors standard candidate profile login and manage or delete the data.


Does the p78 Quick Apply application pull the job description prescreening questions directly from the SuccessFactors system?



The prescreening questions of the job description are consumed directly from the SuccessFactors system.


Does the p78 Quick Apply application support the LinkedIn Profile Upload?



The p78 Quick Apply Application does not support the LinkedIn Profile Upload. A LinkedIn connection can be configured directly via the SuccessFactors system.

Can the Quick Apply be configured to only show one or two of the possible filehosting services?



The document upload from the end user’s local device is always enabled by default. In addition, you can optionally activate other possible filehosting services such as Dropbox or GoogleDrive.

Dropbox: a company account for Dropbox has to be created (free of charge).

GoogleDrive: the connection to GoogleDrive comes with additional monthly costs. This is due to Google's verification model. Since the p78 Quick Apply App is operated on the SAP Cloud Platform and the domain (ondemand.com) is assigned to SAP, the verification of the app can only be done via a customer-owned domain. The customer's own domain must be booked via the additional package "Custom domain quota".


How is the processing of the uploaded files handled in communication with the Parsing Service and SuccessFactors? What happens to the uploaded files after processing?



The uploaded files are in the browser cache, which is deleted after the browser cache expires or after processing.


In which data center is the p78 Quick Apply hosted?



The p78 Quick Apply App is hosted in the SAP data center in Frankfurt.


What is the minimum quality that an image of a CV needs to have so that the Parsing service works?



To achieve optimal parsing results, a quality of 150 DPI is required for images of the CV.


Which data types/categories are subject to the processing of personal data?

  1. Name, last name, e-mail address, country of residence

  2. Title (opt), academic degree

  3. Profession, industry or business name

  4. Address

  5. Contact data (e.g. telephone, e-mail)

Does the Quick Apply use Cookies?



The Quick Apply itself does not use any Cookies for Tracking. We can however integrate a Cookie Manager that our customer uses into the Quick Apply for the case that candidates are accessing the Quick Apply through Job Portals (e.g. Stepstone) and not through the customer's Career Site.
