Create multiple pads

To create multiple pads at the same time, first click on the Pads List in the left navigation menu to open up the pads dashboard. Then click on the drop-down menu under Create Pad and select Create Multiple Pads.

The "create pad" drop down is shown at the top right of the screen, and the "create multiple pads" option is highlighted.

This will open up the bulk pad creator. All you need to do is select the pad language (1), add the pad names if you know them (2) or just add the number of pads you want to create (3), and then click Create [n] Pads.

The create multiple pads screen. There is a #1 next to the "Select language" option, a #2 next to the text box to add pad names, a #3 next to the option to add the number of pads instead of using names, and a #4 next to the "create pads" button at the bottom of the screen.

You’ll then be taken to a screen that will give you the pad URLs that you can send out to your candidates, or you can download the same information in a CSV for further processing by your application or scheduling system.

End or delete pads

To carry out multiple pad ends or deletes, you’ll first need to navigate to the Pads List and select the pads that you want to end or remove (1). To select all the pads, select the checkbox on the header row (2).

A list of pads. You can select pads individually (there's a checkbox on the left of each pad in the list) or all pads by selecting the checkbox in the header row.

Once you select the pads, you’ll see options to either end the pad (End Selected) or delete the pad (Delete Selected):

4 pads have been selected in the list. At the top above the header row it says "4 pads selected" with an "End selected" and "delete selected" button next to that.

End Selected will end the pad if it has not yet been ended by the interviewer, this will enable you to view the playback and prevent candidates from working further on the assessment.

Delete Selected will remove the pad permanently from the Pad List

You’ll then get a confirmation screen asking you if you’re sure you want to end or delete the selected pads:
