Permissioning access to Interview Scheduling:

1. Grant permissions to the Interview Scheduling feature:

RBP: Admin Center > Manage Permission Roles > Recruiting Permissions > Enable Interview Scheduling Permission

non-RBP: Admin Center > Recruiting Permissiosn > Enable Interview Scheduling Permission

2. Users who have active interviews on their job requisitions (the feature permission "interviewAssessment"in the job requisition template defines which recruiting operators will be able to see candidates in the interview statuses) will see candidates in the Interview Scheduling > Job Requisitions tab

3. Additionally you can decide, if the Interview Scheduling will use SF calendar to maintain interviewers' availability or Outlook Integration to pull the availability from interviewers' Outlook calendars:

- In order to enable the SF calendar, please grant permissions to the Recruiting Permission "Enable Calendar":

RBP: Admin Center > Manage Permission Roles > Recruiting Permissions > Enable Calendar

non-RBP: Admin Center > Recruiting Permissions > Enable Calendar

- In order to enable the Outlook Integration, please refer to the following Knowledge Base Article: 2271568
