Some industry regulations may mandate organizations to verify an applicants name during the application process. Enabling the name verification will allow organizations to require applicants to add their First and Last names certifying their application. By default, the "Require Name Verification" setting is disabled and can be enabled by an Account Administrator. Since this is a global setting, any jobs that are posted at the time of updating will reflect the changes automatically.
Follow these steps to enable or disable the applicant name verification:
- Select Applicant Elements from the menu and then select Certifications.
- Toggle the Require Name Verification button to enable or disable the setting.
- Click SAVE.
When activated, all applicants will be asked to type in their name on the "Certifications" page as the final step of the application process. The First and Last name entered in these fields must match identically to the text used on the "Profile" page at the start of the application. If there are any differences, an error will notify the applicant. Once submitted, the hiring team will see the applicant's name verification (First Name, Last Name) and the "Submitted on" date when the Applicant File is printed.
