Permissions: Site Admin, and Job Admin who can email candidates / prospects

Product tier: Available to Advanced and Expert subscription tiers

Candidate self-scheduling allows you to send an interview request to candidates who have the flexibility to self-schedule themselves by choosing a convenient interview time based on the interviewer's calendar availability.

When a self-schedule request is completed, the interview will be automatically scheduled and sent to the interviewers and candidates.

Any user can be an interviewer for the self-schedule request after completing the candidate self-scheduling set up. However, only Site Admin, or Job Admin on the job with the permission to email candidates / prospects, can send the request.

Note: Self-scheduled interview requests are for interviews (such as a Hiring Manager Screen) with a single interviewer and calendar availability.

For interviews with multiple stages or more than one interviewer in a single session, the recruiter will have to schedule the interview normally.

Self-scheduling vs. availability request

A self-scheduled interview request is not the same as an availability request.

While an availability request allows candidates to choose multiple times that can then be coordinated with interviewers and recruiters before scheduling, a self-schedule request only allows a user to select a single date and time based on the interviewer's calendar availability, which is then used to schedule the interview.

Calendar and video conference integrations

Self-scheduled interviews can be integrated with Google Calendar and Outlook 365. An interviewer must add their calendar to their Greenhouse Recruiting account to be included in self-schedule requests.

When sending a request, interviews can be configured to automatically include a video link using Google Meet, Zoom, or Microsoft Teams.
