If you are scheduling an interview in Lever and would like to keep the calendar event details hidden, you can do so by setting the event's visibility to private.


Scheduling an interview as private will only affect the visibility of the event on your team’s calendars. In Lever, the interview details will be visible to any users with access to the candidate’s profile.

Scheduling a private interview follows the same initial steps as other interviews. For a step-by-step guide, visit our help article on scheduling interviews

Interview scheduler

You can set interviews to private in the summary of the calendar invitation that will be sent to your interview panel. To hide the details of the invitation to those not on the interview panel, select the Set as private event checkbox.

When scheduling interviews with internal candidates - i.e. candidates whose opportunities have an 'Internal' origin — interview visibility will default to private, as internal interviews typically include details that are sensitive in nature. For all other interviews, the calendar invite visibility will default to public.

Once your private interview has been scheduled, the interview visibility will be indicated by a “private” label on the candidate profile.

A private event’s details are only visible to the scheduler, members of the interview panel, and any colleagues who have been granted permission to view private events on your calendar. To all others, the event details will be hidden. To check or update who has access to view private events on your calendar, visit the settings of your calendar provider.
