Tech Check enables applicants to verify whether or not their computer device and internet bandwidth  meet the requirements of the opening they are applying for.

If you'd like to use Tech Check, please contact your designated Fountain representative or to enable it in your account.

View the Tech Check Status in Your Workflow

Navigate to the Openings or home tab and select the position you added the Tech Check stage to.

The Applicant Experience

When the applicant lands in the Tech Check stage of the application, they will be prompted to run the Tech Check Test. Once they run the test, the status and results of the Tech Check will appear. 

If the applicant's system fails the initial test, they have the option to Rerun the Tech Check test two more times.



Due to browser reporting limitations, all Mac OS versions reported will max out at version 10.15. Avoid setting Tech Check Mac OS criteria above version 10.15; any higher threshold will end up failing all applicants.
