Is your company required to rerun 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 an interval by which background checks will be rerun. For example, you could rerun a check every three months, or every year.
Create Subscriptions using the Checkr Dashboard
After an initial background check has been run on a candidate, the Checkr Dashboard allows you to initiate recurring background checks in the form of a Subscription.
Before initiating a recurring background check, you must obtain evergreen consent from the 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 on 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.
Manage Subscriptions using the API
Checkr’s API also allows you to create subscriptions. In addition to the features available through the dashboard, the API also allows you to bulk enable and disable subscriptions.
Review the Subscriptions section of our API Docs to set up Subscriptions using the API.
