What happens when a selection process is closed?

Closing a process on Get on Board lets candidates know that you are no longer looking for candidates for the position and organizes your board internally, so that old processes are no longer present. We recommend that you always close the selection process on time, sending a message to the applicants for your job.

When closing a process on Get on Board:

  • No more applicants will be received.
  • All invitations sent via Talent Database or Boost to this process will be canceled.
  • You won't be able to move applications, send messages to applicants, or leave internal team notes.
  • You will receive an email with a complete report on your process with information such as the number of applicants, the duration of the process, the cost per applicant, the number of matches, the response rate, and the average response time.

The report you receive after you close a process

Closing a process is reversible; if your job is less than 3 months old, you can reopen it without consuming an extra quota of publications; but keep in mind that if the process is more than 30 days old and you do not have an active subscription, you will not be able to refresh its date. If you have a subscription plan and your job is 3 months old (or older), you must duplicate the process instead of reopening it.

You can also duplicate a closed process, creating a new job version with a clean selection process.

Bear in mind that duplicating a process will consume a quota of your plan (in case you have a subscription), or you will need to purchase an unlock to access the information of the new applicants.
