  • While setting the integration, I am seeing this error. How to fix this?

1. First, disable the "Google Calendar" integration from your Freshteam app. 

2. Go to your Google Account's Admin Settings > Security. 

3. Scroll down to find "Third-Party Apps without Account Access" 

4. You will find "Freshteam" under it, remove it from the list.

  • A candidate joins the interview, but the interviewer is not getting a notification about the same. Why is this happening?

- Check if the users are in Gsuite Free plan. "interviewers not getting the prompt to allow candidates in" usually happens only for a particular free plan type- "Gsuite legacy-free". Users who use paid Gsuite/google workspaces plan don't face this issue. Also, all the employees / Users should be a part of that company account that has the G-suite license. 

- Alternatively: For users who cannot move to a paid plan can Turn off the google meet integration and copy-paste the google meet link of the interviewer(even the recruiter's link won't work) manually via Web Conference interview type.

- Google meet doesn’t work properly with a personal Gmail account (only the person whose email has been integrated can allow people to join the Google Meet conference. Interviewers(calendar invitees can on their own without approval. But they can’t admit others into the interview call and this is something that can be done only by the email id owner))
