  2. It is a good idea to create a Team in Hatica comprising your pool of interviewers & use this breakdown to assess how much time the team is spending interviewing.
  3. Similarly, for teams that have open positions this breakdown provides a week-on-week breakdown of how much time the team is spending in interviews.
