The file upload question gives you the flexibility to give any simple or complex problem to the candidates. The problem statement might ask the candidates to provide a sample business plan or ask them to send you a .zip file of their coding side project. As the answer, the candidates report a link to an uploaded file which you can download and review.

Internal notes are for later reference. You can include a rubric about scoring the questions or write solutions to the problems in this section. These can be used by your team while evaluating the test.
