If you one of the users who use the services on a daily basis to stay connected with a large number of people, the n you will be glad to know that Skype has introduced a new feature in form of interview scheduler.
The company announced inclusion of the feature via a blog post. The company said, “Today, a new integrated scheduling app—built on the Skype Interviews platform—significantly streamlines the interview scheduling process. Introducing Skype Interviews Scheduler, designed to simplify the process of scheduling interviews—as well as reduce the number of steps required to send an invite. With an embedded interview link, candidates can launch an interview directly from their calendar.”
In order to use the latest feature, you will need to enter the receiver’s name, email address and agreed upon time and date. Afterwards, you can schedule the call using the Smart Scheduler which will help you to arrange an interview. After you have selected the timeslot, both parties will receive a notification giving them option to accept or decline an invitation.
The company further wrote, “After the candidate selects a timeslot, each participant is automatically sent a calendar invite, which they can click to join the interview directly from the email. No download or Skype ID is required to join. From the Skype Interviews dashboard, recruiters can see what times candidates have selected and make further amendments to interviews if needed.”
