Send an invitation for a video interview to an external candidate

Video interviews are deeply integrated with the applicant tracking functionality of SmartCV, but they are also available as a standalone service.

Thus, you can invite an external candidate that does not exist in SmartCV to a video interview by clicking the New invitation button and selecting to external candidate option, as shown below:

You need to fill the following information:

  • First name: Enter the candidate's first name.

  • Last name: Enter the candidate's last name.

  • Email: You can leave the email as is or change it.

  • Language: Select the user interface language of the video interview. This setting has no effect on the language of the video interview itself.

  • Video interview: Select one of the video interviews you have previously created. You can create a video interview at the Manage video interviews screen.

  • Answer deadline: Select or enter the deadline date for the candidate to complete the video interview. The date is inclusive, meaning that the candidate can complete the interview on this date.

  • BCC myself: Check this box to receive a copy of the invitation. It will be sent to the email you used to register to SmartCV as a user.

  • Notify me: Check this box to receive a notification email when the video interview is completed by the candidate. The notification email will include a direct link to the completed interview.

Click on the Send button to send the invitation. You will return to the Manage video interview invitations screen.
