With Interview Playlists you can set up your questions 1 time and use that set of questions across multiple Interviews.
Historically, each Interview in your account had it's own set of questions and you couldn't do anything outside of change an Interview's Questions individually. This made it challenging to set up multiple Interviews with the same Questions.
What we've done with Interview Playlists is separate the Questions from the Interview, so now you have an Interview, and that Interview will point to an Interview Playlist, and that Interview Playlist will contain Questions. Multiple Interviews can now point to a single Interview Playlist, and changing the Questions in that Playlist will apply to all the Interviews.
How Interview Playlists Work
Managing Interview Playlists in Settings
Managing Questions for each individual Interview can be a daunting task, especially when you have multiple sets of Questions you want to use. However, with the new Interview Playlists Settings feature, managing your Questions has never been easier.
The Interview Playlists feature is designed to help you manage your Interview Playlists from one central location. You can create new Playlists, manage existing ones, and assign Interviews to Playlists, all from the Settings page.
Creating a new Playlist
To create a New Playlist, navigate to the Settings page, click on the Interview Playlists tab on the left hand side, and click the
+ Add Playlist button in the top right.
When creating a new Interview Playlist, you start with a blank canvas that you can customize to your liking. You can add Questions, Intros & Outros, and change the name of the Playlist. When you're done, click the
Create button and you'll have a brand new Playlist that you can assign to Interviews.
Assigning Playlists to Interviews
Assigning Playlists to Interviews is where things really start to heat up. On the Playlists tab in Settings, you can hover over a Playlist and click the
View Interviews button. Once on that page, you'll be able to see a list of Interviews that are currently assigned to this Playlist.
By clicking the
Add Interviews button, you'll have the ability to assign one or several Interviews to the selected Playlist. You can also search and filter to find the Interviews you're looking for, making it easier to assign Interviews to Playlists.
Note: an Interview can only have one Playlist associated with it, by assigning an Interview, you are replacing the currently assigned playlist.
Editing an Existing Playlist
To edit an existing Playlist, hover over it on the Settings page and click on the
Manage Questions button. On this page, you'll see the Questions included in the selected Playlist. You can click on the orange
Edit Playlist button to edit those Questions and add new ones.
Edit Playlist you should recognize the Question Management view from when you created the Playlist in the first place. You can add new Questions, Intros, and Outros, as well as change the order and settings for each Question.
Make sure to click the orange
Save button on the right side of the page before exiting the page to save your progress!
Saving a Copy
If you'd like to create another Playlist with similar Questions and settings to the one you're currently editing, then saving a copy is a great option. Saving a copy will create a duplicate Playlist that can be edited however you'd like and then assigned to Interviews.
To save a copy of a Playlist click the down arrow on the
Save button and click
Save a Copy .
A note about the Default Interview Playlist
The Default Interview Playlist is the Playlist that automatically gets assigned to new Interviews when you create them from scratch. If you're somebody that has several Interviews using the same Playlist, it will really speed up your workflow to configure your Default Playlist and use that for those Interviews.
Managing Interview Playlists from the Interviews Page
Another way that you can manage a Playlist is by clicking on the
Interview Playlist button on the Interview Details page, this will enable you to manage the Playlist that is associated with that particular Interview.
Overall, the Interview Playlists Settings feature is a valuable addition to Wedge that can help you manage your interview playlists efficiently and effectively. With its user-friendly interface and helpful features, you can streamline your interview process and ensure that your hiring process runs smoothly.
