Dover surfaces candidates interested in your open roles in Slack. You can review their information and then approve or reject them in Slack or directly in the Dover app.
Approvals and Rejections in Slack
Dover Bot will ask you to approve or reject interested candidates or to confirm next steps for a candidate after their scheduled interview time has passed.
☎️ Initial Call
For new inbound and outbound candidates, please use the Approve or Not Interested buttons. For inbound candidates, you can also click Ignore.
If an outbound candidate Dover has contacted is interested but also has questions about the role that Dover can’t proactively answer, we will ask you to Respond & Advance (approve) with a note containing your answer or click Not Interested (reject).
💡 If you select Respond & Advance but then choose Skip in the next step, this will cancel the candidate’s advancement and you will be prompted again to approve/reject.
To send a candidate a custom message, click
...and select "Customize next steps"
☎️ 2nd Stage Interviews
Once a candidate has completed their first interview with Dover, we will provide a link to the call notes so you can review them before deciding on next steps.
If someone on your team conducts the first interview, Dover will ask if you’d like to Advance the candidate to their second interview or Reject them.
☎️ Take-Home and Onsite Interviews
After a candidate completes their 2nd interview, Dover will ask you to Advance the candidate to the take-home or onsite stages or Reject.
💡 By using the ellipsis (…) next to the “Advance” and “Reject” buttons, you can also let us know whether you’d prefer to handle communications with the candidate instead. You can also notify us if we need to send the candidate a rescheduling note.
