Using 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:
- Select the applicant from the list of applications
- Click "Add" under the Disposition code section of the applicant's profile page
- Select the disposition code from the drop down list
Assign disposition code to multiple applicants:
- Select multiple applications on the applications page as shown below. This will open a menu bar that includes a "Disposition Codes" button.
- Click "Disposition Codes" and select the code you want to apply
The code will display on the applicant profile page of each user.
To change a disposition code, open the applicant's profile page and click "Change" under the Disposition Code section
Select the appropriate code from the drop down list
To remove the disposition code, scroll to the bottom of the list and select "Remove Disposition Code"
You can also remove the code from multiple applications at once from the list of applications
On the applications page, select the applications you want to change, click the "Disposition Code" button, and select "Remove Disposition Code."
You can add a column to the applications page to display the disposition codes of applicants.
