How to use conferencing links in interview invites
When inviting a candidate to interview (see How to Schedule an Interview With a Candidate) you will now see an option to add a conferencing link to the interview invite.
On the 'Invites' page tick the candidate(s) that you would like to invite to interview and then click 'Invite to interview' as shown here:
Next select your conferencing host (i.e. the person whose conferencing link will be used) and then select the conferencing provider:
Next, click 'Send invites' and that will send off the email invitations to the candidates which will each contain a unique link just for that candidate to use.
The candidate will then receive a meeting invite which contains the link to the meeting as shown below:
Additionally each user listed in the 'Hiring Team' box on the interview configuration page will also receive a meeting invite.
