Setting up Pinpoint's Checkr Integration

Prerequisites

You'll need to have the Company Manager role assigned to you in order for you to set up any integrations in Pinpoint.

Step 1

From Pinpoint's left hand navigation bar, select the Integrations option to go to the integrations setup page.

Step 2

Select the Apps tab at the top of this page, and then search for, or scroll down until you see, the Checkr integration option. Once you have located it, click the Add button.

Step 3

If you don't yet have a Chekr account, select the Sign Up button to configure a new Checkr subscription, or if you do already have an account, click the Log In button.

Step 4

Sign in to your Checkr account as normal, and follow any required steps to link Checkr and Pinpoint.

Once this has been successful, the Checkr integration will be enabled in our Integrations system and you will now be able to run background checks on Candidates.


How do I run a Checkr background check on a candidate in Pinpoint?

Prerequisites

In order to perform and view the results of background check, you will need to have the Background Check Creator and Background Check Viewer roles assigned to you in Pinpoint

Step 1

While viewing a candidate's profile as part of a job vacancy, click on the Action button (three small dots) to the top right hand side of their details.

Step 2

From the options that appear, choose the Checkr Background Check option

Step 3

Complete the relevant details, including picking out the packages and nodes you have set up in Checkr, and press the Submit button to start the checking process.

Step 4

After submission, the candidate will be emailed by Checkr to inform them of the background check request, and inviting them to begin the process by filling out their details in their candidate portal.

Step 5

Once the candidate submits their details, Checkr will begin the screening process. You can keep track of the process in the candidate's profile, under the Background Checks page. When a candidate's check is completed, you will be sent a Pinpoint notification to return to our system to see the report. You can do so by clicking the View Report button.
