Can I create, add screenings to, and/or customize a package?
Yes, users with the correct permissions may both create and customize existing packages to fit the needs of your organization. To learn more about which screenings can be added to an existing package, refer to Available packages and add-ons. For instructions on how to create and customize packages, refer to Manage packages.
If you need to make changes to your organization's packages and do not have access to the Packages page of the Checkr Dashboard, work with your account admin. If you encounter any issues, don't hesitate to contact Checkr.
Some customization options might be unavailable through partner integrations, and some screenings might take additional setup time.
Which package is right for me?
Each organization has unique needs, so it’s important to ensure the package includes comprehensive screenings suitable for the role. For example, if you’re hiring a delivery driver, you may want to include a Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) screening in the package.
