Decide whether to engage the candidate
After you review the report, you decide whether to continue with the selection process.
If you continue with the selection process, select Engage in the report's Actions section.
Remember to select Engage so that Checkr analytics can include information from this report. Analytics can show metrics such as the ones below:

Selecting Engage doesn’t notify the candidate and doesn’t change the report.
