HackerRank for Work allows Admins to remove user accounts that are no longer used, and the removed accounts are automatically moved to a 'Locked' state and can be reused later. Locked user accounts do not belong to any Team and do not have access to any shared resources. A locked account also cannot be added to any team. When necessary, you can reuse these accounts by unlocking them and you can add them to the required Team, share resources, etc.
Note: A user account is automatically moved to a "Locked" state when you remove the account from all the Teams.
- When a Recruiter using HackerRank for Work quits your organization, you remove the user account from all the associated Teams.
- The account is then automatically moved to the 'Locked' state.
- When a new recruiting member takes over, you unlock the existing account and assign it to the recruiter's Team.
Refer to the Removing a Member from a Team topic for information about removing a user account.
