Is your company required to run background checks on a specific cadence for your active workforce? Checkr’s Subscriptions feature is designed to help.
When you create a Subscription for a candidate, you set the interval at which a background check will be run. For example, you could run a check every three months, or every year.
Create Subscriptions using the Checkr Dashboard
The Checkr Dashboard allows you to create Subscriptions for your engaged candidates. Subscriptions may not be created until after an initial background check has been run on your candidate, and may not be created before obtaining evergreen consent from your candidate. Once created, Subscriptions will rerun the Package included in the original report, at the original price.
Subscriptions differ from standard reports in that Subscriptions run multiple times, at a defined interval. Subscriptions also require evergreen consent from your candidate, which means that the candidate agrees to an ongoing background check process. Be certain to add this step to your consent flow before creating Subscriptions.
To add or modify an individual candidate’s Subscription, log into the Checkr Dashboard as an admin and go to the candidate’s report from the Candidates section. From the report, follow the instructions to Add a Subscription in the Checkr Dashboard User Guide to initiate recurring reports for the candidate.
The Dashboard allows you to create Subscriptions for individual candidates; it does not allow you to mass subscribe or unsubscribe candidates. Use the Checkr API to create Subscriptions to which candidates may be subscribed in bulk.
If your candidate is located outside of the US, you may not create a Subscription for them.
Manage Subscriptions using the API
Checkr’s API allows you to create Subscriptions to which candidates may be enrolled or unenrolled in bulk.
Review the Subscriptions section of our API Docs to set up Subscriptions using the API.
Avoid running unnecessary reports using the API. You will be charged for each report you run.
