Even more updates!

For Hire:

Automatic fallback to current user as coordinator if none is specified

If no coordinator is specified in your ATS and you start scheduling an interview, GoodTime will auto-select you as the coordinator to save time.

New variable: $interview.interviewlength

With this new variable, you can insert the total length of a multi-panel interview into your communications.

Revamped Replace Trainee sidebar

The sidebar for switching trainees has been completely revamped and now shows important information such as which tag the interviewer came from, load limit status, and better functioning conflict control.

For Hire for High Volume:

Text forwarding to email

When candidates send SMS or WhatsApp messages, users receive emails notifying a candidate has sent a message. We’ve also made our messenger mobile-friendly so you can reply to messages right from your phone. This setting can be disabled if you do not want to be notified via email.

Workday Chrome Extension

Workday ATS users can now use our GoodTime Chrome Extension to open candidates up directly inside of the ATS. Workday users can also now message candidates and schedule interviews without having to leave the ATS
