Using Abacus for Candidate Reimbursement

Using Abacus to reimburse your interview candidates is a great way to enhance a seamless interview process, and make sure that candidates get reimbursed easily and quickly. This article will make recommendations for features that are especially relevant for companies using Abacus to reimburse Interview Candidates. 

1. Personalize your invitations by adding a company logo and color scheme

Customize Abacus so that it's aligned with your brand, so when interview candidates receive an invitation to join Abacus, it will feel more integrated with the overall experience. In the  Appearance tab of your Organization settings, add your company logo and a color scheme:

2. Set per-diem budgets and bake your reimbursement policy into Abacus

Using our rule-builder on your  expense policy page, add budget rules for meals, hotels, and flights. Learn more about how to customize your policy and build rules here.

3. Group Candidates into Departments using Team Fields
