Referral questions enable your organization to capture structured data for referrals made by your existing employees. In addition to Greenhouse Recruiting provided default questions, your organization can add new custom referral questions.

In this article, we will cover how to delete an existing referral question so it no longer populates for users while making referrals. Both default and custom referral questions can be deleted.

Click the Configure icon Configure.png in the upper right-hand corner and select Custom Options from the left-hand panel.


Click Referral Questions under the Company Custom Fields section.


From the Manage Referral Question Fields page, navigate to the referral question you wish to remove and click the Delete icon Delete.png


A subsequent dialog box will ask you to confirm the decision. Click Yes, remove it.  


While responses to the question will remain visible for existing referrals, the question will no longer appear for future user-submitted referrals.
