Customize your domains

You can now add your own custom domain (e.g. technologies, frameworks, and programming languages) when creating a custom question.

When creating a question (of any type), in the Settings section, you’re asked to select a domain:

A settings section with the "domain" field highlighted.

When you click on the Domain field, a drop down list of Screen’s supported domains will appear. You can select a domain from the list — or decide to enter your own. To create a custom domain, simply enter the domain name.

When you go to create a question, your new domain name will appear in the Domain drop-down list:

The domain name will also appear in the Custom questions list, which you can access by clicking on the Custom tab:

Now when setting up your test, you’ll be able to select your new custom domain:

Your custom domain will also have its own category in the candidate’s test report:
