Candidate Review makes it possible for you to more easily gather, customize, and share a candidate's documents, evaluations, and interview schedules.

Sharing candidate materials with Hiring Committees, practice group leads, and other stakeholders during reviews requires a lot of file sharing. You may have used Flo Recruit's Bulk PDF Download to generate packets of documents for this. Now, there's a streamlined, digital option that shares live-updated documents and evaluations via a link, instead of a download!

This feature is included with the Applicant Tracking System. If interested in upgrading to the ATS or purchasing Candidate Review as its own separate add-on, please contact your Account Manager.

To use this helpful tool, first click on the Candidate Review icon:

From here, you will be shown a list of all of the candidate reviews that you have created. Initially, of course, this will be blank:

To create a candidate review, click on the + New Candidate Review button in the top right corner:

This will prompt you to title the review, as well as designate which interviews you wish to include:

Once done with this step, click Select Candidates:

From here, you will see a list of all candidates from the interviews that you selected on the previous menu. You may select one, some, or all from the list:

If you notice that you forgot to add one of your interview events, you can always click on Previous to be taken back to the previous menu:

Once you have selected all candidates that you wish to include, click on Select Review Information:

There are three sections that you can include: Documents, Evaluations, and Interview Schedules. If you do not want to include one of these sections, simply switch the Enabled toggle to off:

Within the Documents section, you can decide not only which documents you wish to include, but also the order that you wish to see them in:

For the Evaluations section, you can sort the answers by question or by evaluator:

You may also reorder each of these main three sections, as desired:

Once done with your customizations, click on Finalize Candidate Review:

You will be prompted to either view this review or return to the Reviews List:

While viewing a specific review, there are a number of actions that you can perform. One is viewing the list of candidates:

Another is deleting the review, if no longer needed:

You can also add or remove candidates by clicking on the Edit Candidates button and either selecting or deselecting:

Note that you will only be able to add candidates from the interviews that you originally added. Aside from selecting or deselecting candidates from this now set list, you cannot make changes to your customizations, such as including more documents or rearranging the order. Thus, if you made a mistake or change your mind, you may need to delete and restart your review.

To view a particular candidate's review packet, click on their name:

From here, you will see everything organized according to your customizations. Below, you will see screenshot examples of what each of these sections might look like:

You can choose to hide or view each of these sections, as needed:

You can also scroll through the next candidates in the list:

To share this review, click on the Copy Review Packet Link button:

You can also find this from the main Reviews List:

If you open this link and you are an admin, you will be prompted to login if you are not already. If this is being shared with a non-admin member, know that they will need to be added to the Members list of the account first in order to get access. They do not need to be made an admin, but they do need to be in the system in order to be authenticated.

Last, but not least, note that you can sort your reviews from the Reviews List based on the arrows next to each column:
