What’s New in April 2023: Introducing Anonymous Mode, Google Sign-in & More

anonymous mode

We’re excited to share the latest features Anonymous Mode, Google Sign-in & more in CodeInterview from the last quarter. Our team has been working hard to improve the platform and make it more efficient, reliable and user-friendly. Here are some of the changes we have implemented:

Public Feature Request Forum

This new forum allows you to share feedback about CodeInterview in a more efficient and organized manner. If you have any suggestions or requests, you can access it here.

Developer Skill Assessment Tool

Anonymous Mode

The Anonymous Mode feature empowers users to conceal personal information at two distinct levels during specific tests—either for individual team members or the entire hiring team. This functionality involves encrypting the candidate’s personal information, transforming it into an alphanumeric string, enhancing confidentiality and objectivity in the evaluation process.

Users can activate team-wide anonymity by accessing the Settings tab for each test:

Individual anonymity can be triggered by clicking the pen edit icon when hovering over a team member in your test Settings under the Hiring Team section:

By hiding personal information from the hiring team, candidates are judged solely based on their qualifications and experience, ensuring that the hiring process is impartial and free from any prejudices. We hope that this new feature will help create a more transparent and equitable hiring process.

Google Sign-in

We have integrated Google Sign-in to make it easier to sign up and log in to our platform.

Bug fixes and other improvements

As usual, we squashed some bugs and made subtle fixes to upgrade your CodeInterview experience. Here’s a quick summary:

  • Made improvements and bug fixes to our Interview Notes feature and enhanced the overall user experience.
  • Updated our Sample Test storage location in our database to reduce database load and improve reliability.
  • Resolved an issue with our old multifile npm registry third party by shifting to npm’s own registry, ensuring that our customers have access to the latest packages.
  • We have addressed an accuracy issue by fixing the incorrect deletion of VB headers, which caused incorrect outputs.
  • In response to customer requests, we have added a URL for resumes to public API calls, making it easier for users to access candidate resumes.
  • Officially retired legacy remote interviews in favor of Codeinterview.

As we are continuously working to improve our platform, we hope that these new features will enhance your overall experience. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or feedback.
