Zoho Recruit | Scheduling Live Video Interview

Scheduling Live Video Interview

Zoho Recruit's live video interview is a real-time interview in which an interviewer connects with a candidate face-to-face over the internet via webcam. This is an improvement over one-way interviews, particularly in-person interviews cannot be easily arranged. Compared to in-person interviews, live interviews don't require recruiters and candidates to travel and meet, which in turn potentially saves time and money for both.


Permission required: Only users with the Create Interview permission can create video interviews.

Edition required: Available for all paid plans of both Staffing and HR editions of Zoho Recruit.

Scheduling a Live interview 

    1. Navigate to the Interviews Module and click the  icon.

    2. Select Live Video Interview from the interview type pop-up. 

    3. After you’ve entered the interview details click Schedule.

    4. Once the interview is scheduled, the candidate and interviewer will receive the link to the interview via email. 

Important notes:

  • By default, you can schedule multiple video interviews for one active job opening. To do the same for more job openings, you’ll have to purchase additional video interview credits.

  • By default, you can make use of 1 free video interview credit for scheduling interviews. You can purchase additional video interview credits as an add-on for $10/month/job under Settings > Subscription > Upgrade User/ Add-ons.
