What is Canvass?

Canvass replaces traditional screening interviews to eliminate hours of work for your hiring team every week — so they can focus on hiring the right people, faster.

Candidates record responses to your pre-recorded interview questions at their convenience, and you review them at yours. It's a flexible process that removes the need for scheduling and works seamlessly across time zones.

Organizations using Canvass can expect a 5-7x improvement in their candidate screening efficiency, while substantially improving the quality of later stage interviews, through better insight and collaboration early in the hiring process.

The integrated workflow means that Canvass fits directly into your existing Applicant Tracking System (ATS). You send interview invitations, and evaluate candidate responses, all from the comfort of your ATS.

Getting started is a breeze. There's no software to download. You record interview questions directly in your browser on mobile, tablet, or desktop — and creating an interview takes less than 5 minutes.

How to send an interview

Important Note: If you have not signed up for a Canvass Plan and are only a free user, your assessment request will not go through. You must have a plan selected.  

Sign into your ATS account and navigate to an applicant. Click the Verify drop-down and select Canvass Assessment.

Select from amongst your Canvass positions and click Order Assessment

If you do not have an option that suits the job, you'll need to head back over to your Canvass account and create it there before it will be visible in this area.

Well done! Your candidate will now be emailed an invitation.

Once the candidate has completed their interview, a link will be automatically added to the Files tab in their Applicant Profile. Click the Assessment link to view their submission.

That's it, you've done it! The rest is up to you and your personal journey through Hiring Happiness.
