What is Response Reuse on TalentCentral™ and how does it work?

Response Reuse copies the candidate’s responses from their previous assessment to their new one. This occurs if you add a candidate with the same email address and the same assessment to a project within a specified time period. Candidates using a multiple use link will have their responses reused once they reach the assessment homepage. If you are adding named candidates to a project, their responses will be reused once you click on Update Project.

The default time period varies by assessment type and is listed below:

Classification Occurs if previous session completed within
Personality 180 Days
Solutions 180 Days
Ability 30 Days
Skills No Response Reuse

Please note that the time periods can be customised. Please contact your local SHL Technical Support team to make the changes.
