Use Disposition Codes

Disposition codes help track and document committee decisions regarding each applicant, providing responsible documentation of the hiring process and mitigating liability by keeping a record of the stated reasons why each individual job applicant was removed from consideration.

This article explains how to use disposition codes.


For more detailed information see this article on Setting Up Disposition Codes.

Disposition codes can be assigned to applications one at a time, or a single disposition can be assigned to multiple applications.

Assign a disposition code to a single applicant:

  1. Select the applicant from the list of application
  2. Click "Add" under the Disposition code section of the applicant's profile page
