Frequently Asked Questions

How does this impact test candidates?

The tests interface will not be available during the maintenance window. Candidates will see a notification to come back at a later time. We will also ensure that candidates are allowed to start their Test only if they can complete it before the start of the maintenance window.

How does this impact CodePair sessions?

New CodePair sessions cannot start during the maintenance window, and up to 90 minutes prior to the start of the window. For sessions that are live as we approach the window, we will show warnings to the participants so they can complete their interview. Interview data recorded before the maintenance window starts will be safe.

How does this impact my reports?

You will not be able to view reports or dashboards during the downtime.
