If you add a REQUIRED question to the General Application, here are some of the implications to your system:
  • All Submitted applications will be reverted to the Drafted category
  • A Drafted category will prevent applications from matching into any auto-match opportunities that are not set to "Match Drafted" 
  • Applications in a Drafted category are not visible to reviewers
  • If you are using this question as a qualification on an opportunity or in a reviewer group, applicants that have not answered the question (were in a Submitted state prior to the addition of the question) may become disqualified, not matched, and/or not assigned for review
If you add a NON-REQUIRED question to the General Application, here are some of the implications to your system:
  • Submitted applications will remain in the Submitted category
  • If you are using this question as a qualification on an opportunity or in a reviewer group, applicants that have not answered the question may become disqualified, not matched, and/or not assigned for review
Tip: It is highly recommended to reserve all changes to the General Application until Cycle Management.
