Depending on your user permissions, the action button to the right of each application allows several options.
- View or download the background check results application if the check is complete or partial. Applications for which no results have been returned cannot be viewed.
- Upgrade an application to include additional checks that you did not previously select to run on the candidate.
- Share a summary of the most pertinent information in the report via email.
- Move the candidate into different categories to help you keep track of their progress throughout the background check phase of their tenancy/employment application with you.
To view the candidates in their different categories, select the category from below the Applications heading (2).
Below the categories bar are several search options. Search by:
- candidate name, email, report ID, or owner to find a particular candidate,
- team to get a list of all the applications from a particular team,
- scan type to find all applications that contain a particular type of check,
