  3. Check a question and click in Delete:

  4. Access an existing requisition that uses this question, and your question will still be there.

Resolution

Once you have added a question into a Job Requisition, the question becomes part of the form, which means that , there is no impact on deleting a question from the Library as long as you don't remove the question from the list of questions inside the Job Requisition.

Also, for the answers of each candidate, when you access their Applications in the Candidate Workbench their answers will be intact and you will be able to continue to work normally.

The one and only impact that this will have when you create a new Job Requisition and go to add the questions, you will no longer be able to find this question in your library, or if try to add this question into an already existing requisition, you will also not be able to find the question in the library.
