News In Refapp, June 2023


We’re back with exciting Refapp updates and knowledge-packed events. Also, summer is here and we wish you all a great one!🧡


New Features✨

Set a minimum acceptable number of referees from the candidate

We have received requests for the possibility to set a minimum acceptable number of references from the candidate.

For example, you may want the candidate to provide 3 references, but you will still accept 2 if the candidate is unable to provide more. This makes the experience better for the candidate and also allows you to move the process forward more quickly. Read more in this help article.
