What is Hardstop Status field and details on its usage and configuration


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


Hardstop Policy:

A " Hard stop”  status is configured so that the applicant may not proceed in the application pipeline past a certain status until the results for that assessment order are returned on the applicant record. Given below are the features of  this configuration.

  • A Hard stop status field is configured on the job requisition template as a standard field.
  • On the job requisition detail page, the hardstop status drop down consists of a list of active default, In progress and onboarded statuses available in the application status set associated with the job Req.
  • Once configured, when the recruiter moves the applicant  to a status past the Hard stop status, the system would check if any assessment were trigger for this applicant and if all of them are completed. If yes the status changed is allowed , else the status cannot be moved beyond,until all the assessments are completed

Template configuration:

The assessment Hard stop field can be configured in job req template. And the permission can be given for the Hard Stop field , as we give all other job req fields.This would be configured as a standard field of type picklist .

<field-definition id="hardstopStatus" type="picklist" required="false" custom="false">
 <field-label><![CDATA[Hardstop Status]]></field-label>
 <field-description><![CDATA[Hardstop status for assessments]]></field-description>

NOTE :  Though this standard field is configured as a picklist and picklist id is provided, this would behave as a derived  field and would show the default, on boarded and in progress statuses of the job req, according to the application status set id  associated to this Job Req..
