  2. Click the More dropdown near the top-left corner of the screen.

  3. Click Background Checks to open the Background Checks tab.

  4. Click Send Background Check.

  5. Find Checkr and choose a screening option from the dropdown.

You can check the status of the background screen, and find the results, in the Background Checks tab of the candidate’s profile.


  • We can only perform background checks on candidates for US-based positions.

  • The candidate’s first and last name are required to run a background check. Special characters will prevent the background check from running (e.g., - , / *).
