Sometimes it's necessary to extend an interviewee's invitation as they need more time to complete their interview.
In Shortlister it's really simple to do this and there is a couple of ways in which this can be achieved.
Step by Step Guide
If you have the interviewee name or email to hand then the quickest route would be to input either piece of information into the search bar.
When the relevant interviewee displays, simply select on their name and you will be taken to their relevant interview.
Next to their name, to the right-hand side select on ‘extend deadline’.
You can either select on +3 days, +5 Days +7 Days or to select a specific date select on the New Deadline date and select the date you’d like to extend to on the calendar then select on the “extend” button.
Automatically the interviewee will then receive an email notifying them of their extension and you are able to view their new deadline date in the ‘Deadline’ column.
You also have the option to extend the interviewees deadline in bulk.
Now, please note that we wouldn’t recommend extending deadlines before the current deadline has elapsed, and definitely advise getting in touch with the interviewees beforehand to notify them of their extension.
