It is recommended to switch off the automated messages on the interview stage first so that the applicant will not receive another invite to select a schedule again. Once the applicant has been moved, you can switch the automated message back on again.

To switch off the Interview stage automated messages, here is what you need to do:

STEP 1: Log in to your Workstream account.

STEP 2: Go to Positions.

STEP 3: Select a location.

STEP 4: Highlight a position, then click the Actions button.

STEP 5: Select Edit position.

STEP 6: From Stages, select Interview Stage.

STEP 7: Go to Automation. Turn off all invitation letter templates.

You can now go back to your applicant and move him/her to the interview stage.
