Interviewer availability can be managed using 2 methods, the Interviewer Assistant built in calendar or Google Calendar. Lets have a look at the Google Calendar settings and how to configure it.
- Start by selecting Google Calendar as the Availability Source
- Then press the Email button, this will send an authentication email to the email account that was entered when adding the recruiter. The Interviewer will receive an email from Interviewer Assistant with a link to google, they will need to follow Googles authorization process to allow Interviewer Assistant access to the Google Calendar. This authorization is done on Googles side and is required by their service. See Step 5 for the steps required to authenticate the email address with google.
- Lastly we need to tell Interviewer Assistant what restrictions to place on when the Interviewer is available. In the example below we see that Interviewer Assistant will only allow interviews to be scheduled in the Google Calendar Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Its important to note that Interview Assistant will schedule an interview for any time with in the values provided as long as the calendar is open for the requested time. This means that the interviewer should schedule time in the Google calendar for breaks and lunches to make sure interviews aren't scheduled during times that the recruiter is unavailable.
An authorization email has been sent to the recruiters email address from Interviewer Assistant. Click on the "Google Authorization" link to proceed.
A new web page will open, click on the link "Authorize with Google Calendar" to continue.
Enter the google email account that you would like to synchronize with Interviewer Assistant and click next, you will then be prompted for the google account password, type that in the space provided and press next.
If the setup was successful you will see the "Congratulations" message
