Important notes when deleting Job Requisition:

  • If the job requisition already has some applicants the system will prompt a warning before deleting the requisition.
  • If the job requisition doesn't have any applicants the system will prompt a confirmation message to delete the job requisition.
  • Actual applicant will only be emailed when the Job Requisition is deleted.
  • User may opt to configure a generic email notification that will be sent to all candidates or use the multi-select status set feature to select the candidates they would like to notify.
  • If we delete a Job Requisition, the candidates will not be deleted, they are kept in a separate part of the system.
  • The applications for that specific requisition will be deleted, but if the candidate applied to other requisitions, those applications would remain.
