Frequently Asked Questions 

How can I sign up with Checkmate?
Please contact

Can I add Checkmate as a Workflow Helper?

No.  Because Checkmate leverages JazzHR's screening API, the workflow helper function is not available.  This is intentional to avoid allowing an unauthorized user from triggering the background/reference check.  We recommend either utilizing a Reference Check stage or adding a Task helper to a stage as a reminder.

Which questionnaires in Checkmate that is not displaying in JazzHR?

Any questionnaire that is saved under Custom Check.
