Improved interview state management (CodePair)

We’ve rolled out a change to improve the state management of CodePair interviews. Before this change, if an interviewer did not click the “End” button at the end of an interview (see image below), that interview continued to be listed in the “In Progress” field of “Reports” and was accessible by the candidate, indefinitely.

Ending CodePair interviews


The change ensures that all “In Progress” interviews are ended, and moved to the “Completed” state automatically after 60 minutes of inactivity. An interview is considered inactive when all the participants (i.e. the interviewer(s) and the candidate) leave the CodePair session.

We’ve also cleaned up all the old interviews in “In Progress” state as a part of this change. Please note that an interview may be re-opened (and moved back to “In Progress”) at any time by the interviewer by logging back into the session (at which point the candidate may re-enter, as well). It cannot, however, be re-opened by the candidate.
