2805763 - Block Candidates from applying to requisitions - Recruiting Management

Symptom

Is there a way to block candidates from applying to requisitions?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Resolution

There is no way to block a candidate from applying to a requisition.

One thing that can be done, if you feel that inadequate candidates are applying to the requisitions or if the candidates that are applying do not meet the minimum requirements, is use Pre-Screening Questions in your requisitions configuring Disqualifying questions, where the candidates that do not answer the question correctly will be automatically places into a disqualifying status.

Example: Let's say that you are looking for candidates with the minimum of 10 years of expertise on the field. So you will create a question asking if the candidate has 10+ years on the field, and se this question as a disqualifying one.
