Can I disqualify or reject candidates based on their application form answers?


Yes, for custom 'Yes/No' questions on the application form, you can choose to automatically disqualify candidates who answer "No".


When a candidate answers with "no":

  • they receive an application confirmation email
  • they are added to your Workable account under the Disqualified tab in the Applied stage
  • the candidate does not know that they have been disqualified

Email disqualified candidates when you're ready to let them know that you won't be proceeding with them.

You can revert disqualified candidates to be qualified if necessary.
