After creating an interview, you may want to change or add a deadline for potential candidates to interview by.

  • Deadlines on Email Invitation: Setting up deadlines through our platform is a cinch! After you’ve created your job, you can set up deadlines through your email invitations by simply navigating to your designated Job in the Jobs section > then click Invite.

    Below the sections where you input the candidate’s name, email address, and telephone number, you will see the “Set a deadline for your candidates” section. You may choose your deadline and designated region for the candidates you’re inviting at the moment.

    To change the deadline for the already invited candidates, you need to navigate into the Invite tab, and after that the Invite Status section. Upon clicking on the white square next to the candidate's name, you will be prompted to 3 options, the middle of which is the “Extend Deadline” one.

Select the date and time you wish the link to expire by.
Keep in mind your candidate's time zones! You can select the timezone below as well.

🔹 Candidates will receive an email notifying them that their deadline has been extended.

🔹 You cannot add deadlines due for the day you are editing - but you can cancel the invite to expire the same day.

🔹 When selecting multiple candidates you will receive a warning that editing a group of invitations will override them to all be in the same time zone. If you wish to keep candidates deadlines in different time zones you will have to change each time zone deadline separately.

If you'd like the link to expire right away, you can select Cancel Invite instead. This will automatically expire the link and will not allow the selected candidates to apply.

Changing Deadlines on Direct Links

You can change direct link deadlines by going into >Jobs >Job you wish to edit e.g. worker >Invite > Invite Candidates > Direct Link.

Click on "Deadline" to change the deadline of the link.
Please note, the expiration of this link is changed for all candidates that received the link and cannot be customized for each individual candidate, (as opposed to email invitations which can be set to expire at different times depending on the candidate).
