A HackerRank for Work Test is automatically closed when the Test end date and time-lapses. In this scenario, the test will be unavailable to your invited Candidates, and Recruiters will not be able to invite new Candidates to the now-closed test.
However, you can reopen the same test for your use as per the steps mentioned below.

- Previously invited Candidates who are yet to attempt the test will be able to access the test using the link provided in the same invite email. You can also re-invite them.
- If some of your Candidates have already attempted the test but you would want them to reattempt, you must delete their previous test submissions first.
