Following features are critical for Recruiting enablement:

Option name Description
Question Object Management Required to enable Recruiting.

Enable Candidate Workbench

Required. Enables a significant improvement in user interface and functionality on the application list page.
Encourage existing clients to enable this switch in test mode, review the differences, and then enable it in Production. This switch is scheduled to become universal and it is better for clients to opt-in before that happens.

Ownership for duration

Sets the period of time when an agency is listed as the owner of a candidate in the database.
Attachment Storage Allocation Upper limit to the attachment storage space allocated to the instance. (Recommended 1000G)
Attachment user limit Upper limit to he attachment storage space allocated to the individual user. (Recommended: No limit)
Attachment max file size The maximum size of a single attachment that can be uploaded. This value is not designed to scale to media files like video and audio. (Recommended 5M)
Attachment Limit Notification Monitor Period Super admins and admins who have access to the File Storage Management feature in Admin Tools receive a notification when the company has hit a threshold of 75% of their total Attachment Storage Allocation. When the notification is turned on, the system runs a job every X days (1,3,5,7) to trigger the e-mail reminder. (Recommended: 7)

Please refer to the Implementation Guide for further recommended Provisioning options.
