When you are logged into your account you can set your scheduling preferences.
The preferences you set in your account will be the default when you create a new scheduling request for yourself. You can however always adjust any details of a specific interview while you are scheduling it too.
Are you scheduling on behalf of others? See how to adjust their scheduling preferences here.
Your own preferences
I would like to offer any free slots during working hours to candidates
Working hours will provide the most available times to candidates as it looks at your calendar and shares any slots that are free real-time. You don't need to change anything as this is the default availability setting.
I work with specific blocks allocated for interviews
In case you work with allocated moments for interviews, you can drag and drop to the times where you want us to look at for free slots in your calendar.
If you would only like to have interviews scheduled at times that you are available in your calendar on Monday and Wednesday afternoons it would look like the below.
Duration - We advise to adjust this to the duration of your most common interview.
Scheduling period - For screening interviews we recommend 3 or 7 days to speak to candidates faster. For interviews such as panel interviews that require more preparation we recommend 14 days.
Buffers - If you want to provide maximum availability to candidates it is best to keep your buffers at '0'. When you create a 10 min buffer and you have a meeting from 10am - 11am the next possible slot for the candidate will be 12pm.
