Your account has a default setting on every account that enables applicants to Allow applications from job boards. What that means is any applicant that clicks on your job posting from Indeed.com and ZipRecruiter then clicks on that job board's "Apply Now" button will be presented with a shortened version of the application web form that does not include any Form Builder application questions you created.

- Can increase applications from qualified candidates
- Makes it very easy for applicants to apply to your job
