2. (Option C) Create a Singular Field Placement from a Template

This help page will walk you through the steps for creating a singular Field Placement from a template. Using a template to create one Field Placement at a time can be useful if you will be generating many Placements over time, but are not ready to create them all at once.

Simply Create a Field Placement Template and then use it to create Placements for the appropriate candidate. You can set up assessments and forms beforehand, but can also edit each Placement on a singular basis if they require something unique.

NOTE: You should create or ensure that you have your prerequisite resources ready prior to creating a Field Placement. If you are uncertain of which resources you require, please visit our Create Prerequisite Resources help page.
