Frequently Asked Questions - Background Check Validity Periods
Yes. This feature will work with the automated candidate progression functionality, but you do not need to have both auto-progression and auto-disposition configured for the requisition. The results of a background check will apply to all requisitions if you have a validity period set up for background checks via the Background Check Connector in Edge, and thus will also apply to auto-progression or auto-dispositioning of a candidate across requisitions, if applicable.
No, not at this time. The validity period feature will only be available for background check integrations that were developed using the background check connector.
This will not be available on Manage Candidates at the time of the May '19 release. This feature may be available on Manage Candidates in a future release.
No, not at this time. If external candidates have been auto-assigned a background check screening for a requisition, then internal candidates for the same requisition will also get a background check.
In such cases, it will be necessary for you to work with your background check vendor to ensure that the results link does not expire prior to the expiration of the validity period.
If you change the validity period, the new validity period will only apply to background checks that are conducted after the validity period is changed. All prior results will not be affected. If you turn off the validity period feature, the expiration dates for previously received results will not be affected and will continue to have the same expiration date.
No, background check results with validity periods will not be visible on the Applicant Profile page. Results across requisitions will be shown only on the Manage Applicants page. Visibility on the Applicant Profile page may be visible in a future enhancement.
Yes, you will be able to see background check results that were submitted when the candidate was in a sensitive status, provided that you have permission to view sensitive statuses. Your permission to view sensitive statuses allows you to view results across requisitions when the results were submitted in a sensitive status.
This functionality cannot be used for assessments at this time. This may be available in a future enhancement.
By default, the initial validity period is set to the first date that background check results are received. If/when an additional part of the results are received, then the validity period is automatically changed to the date of receipt of the next part of the results.
Yes, the candidate's background check results will follow the candidate, provided that the validity period has not expired.
No, you will not be able to assign background checks manually to the same candidate once they have a background check in an In Progress status for a different requisition. This is provided that the validity period functionality is enabled for the Background Check Connector in Edge.
