Adding a video interview to a stage


If you already have an account with an external video interview provider, you should first set up its integration with Workable. Find out how to set up an integration with one of our partners.

To add a video interview for a job, either create or edit a job and move to the Assessments tab:


Video interviews are attached to specific stages in the recruiting pipeline. The available stages to choose from are ‘assessment’ types, for example, Phone Screen, Assessment and Interview. After clicking the Assessments tab, select the appropriate stage from the dropdown menu and click Video Interview:


Next, you’ll see a list of all the interviews available from your chosen video interview software. Select the most appropriate interview for this job and save your changes.

Important: Video interview templates must be sent to at least 1 candidate through the video interview platform before the template will appear in Workable.

Note for Spark Hire: If this is your first time setting up a Spark Hire interview you will be prompted to enter your API key.

  • Log in to your Spark Hire account.
  • Navigate to your Settings and then Integrations
  • Locate Workable and click the option to Integrate.
  • Click Activate Integration. Your user API key will be generated. Copy and paste the key into Workable.

That’s it, the video interview has been set up for this stage. You will now be able to send it to candidates in the stage.

To add another interview or a test for a different stage, click ‘add another evaluation method’ on the left-hand side. Again you’ll be asked to choose the type of assessment, and after making your choice, you’ll be asked to select and save a test. Continue until you have applied all the tests or video interviews you need for each stage.

You can also add an assessment test or interview scorecard to different stages. 

To edit or delete a test from a stage, first locate the name of the test in the list on the left. Next, click the small pencil icon next to the assessment name. This will load the selected test in the main window. Click the pencil icon on the right of the window to edit the test, or the small dustbin to delete it.
