Do some spring cleaning with archived tests!

Authenticated test links in invitation emails

The test invitation email has been improved to provide a better experience to the candidates. The email will contain a “Start Test” button (see image below) instead of candidate email and password. Clicking on this button will take the candidate to a test login page which will be authenticated for that specific candidate and they will […]
