Activity

If there is a requirement to run a background check on a candidate without knowing a candidate’s history, Activity can be used.

Activity checks are for candidate entry orders only; when creating an order with an Activity check, you can request either a number of years or number of events. When the candidate inputs their details in the Verifile system, they will be prompted to add either:

  • Employment History
  • Academic Qualification
  • Gap in Activity

Once the candidate has fulfilled the specified number of years/activities they can submit their order.


How to add an Activity check?

Activity checks are ordered in the same way as other cadnidate entry order checks. The value placed in the quanitity field is the number of years of activity you require from the candidate.

Response

The main difference between activity and other types of check is that activity is the only check that is returned by the API in a CheckGroups object.
