📈 Byteboard Dashboard - Sections & Charts Explained!

A detailed walkthrough of the Dashboard page charts and data.

Dashboard Sections

The Byteboard portal main Dashboard page contains useful metrics and reporting tables to help you track hiring progress and make the best use of the Byteboard platform.

*Note Only Byteboard users with the Admin, Recruiter, or Interviewer user role on your account will be able to access the Dashboard page. Users with the Skills Report Reviewer role will not have access to this page or be able to view the metrics displayed in the sample dashboard below.

The Dashboard may appear differently for accounts that have fewer than 10 interviews total and also for accounts that have not sent any Byteboard interviews within the last 30 days. Continue to send more interviews to make the most of your Byteboard dashboard!
Best Practice — Over time, as you send out Byteboard interviews, make sure to populate Next Steps and Offer Status data on your Candidates dashboard for each candidate; the dashboard metrics will begin to populate and evolve over time to reflect your inputs!

This knowledge article reviews each section displayed on your Byteboard Dashboard page, including how to interpret the different charts and metrics. Click on a section name in the table of contents below to read more about that Dashboard section!


1. Interview Volume

The Interview Volume metric displays the total number of Byteboard interviews that your candidates have taken over time, graphed on a month-to-month basis.

  • The monthly numbers reflect finalized interviews within the month, not the number of invites sent. Incomplete interviews do not count toward these totals.

*Note — The Interview Volume metric only includes fully completed/graded interviews that resulted in a Skills Report being generated.

2. Overall Journey With Byteboard

The Overall Journey With Byteboard section give you a snapshot of how Byteboard has been used for your account all-time. This section is broken down into key metrics:

Notion image
  • Avg Candidate Satisfaction — Average rating score on a scale of 1 to 5 given by candidates on an optional survey after completing the interview; the overall average for all candidates.
    • Each candidate is sent a post-interview survey and is asked to grade their satisfaction of the Byteboard experience on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the most favorable.
  • Invites Sent — the number of Byteboard interview invitations sent to candidates
  • Onsites — indicates the total number of your Byteboard candidates who have been marked as ‘Onsite’ or ‘TPS + Onsite’ for their Next Steps in the Candidates table.
    • 🚨
      *Please note that this number will only be accurate if your team has provided Byteboard with up-to-date candidate outcomes data, either by manually providing Next Steps in the Byteboard portal or by completing ATS integration setup to automate sending this data to Byteboard from your ATS.
  • Offers — indicates the total number of your candidates who have been marked as ‘Offer Made’, ‘Offer Declined’, or ‘Offer Accepted’ for their Offer Status in the Candidates table.
    • 🚨
      *Please note that this number will only be accurate if your team has provided Byteboard with up-to-date candidate outcomes data, either by manually providing Offer Status in the Byteboard portal or by completing your ATS integration setup to automate sending this data to Byteboard from your ATS.
  • Hours Saved — calculated by aggregating the number of pre-onsite and onsite interviews replaced by using Byteboard. We assume all interviews take 60 minutes with a 30-min post interview feedback session. The onsite interviews replaced is calculated by determining how many fewer candidates will be needed to achieve 1 offer (comparing Byteboard’s onsite-to-offer rate with the industry average of 25%). This does not include recruiting time saved!
Best PracticeOnce a candidate receives an offer as part of their next steps in the interview process, navigate to the Candidates table and populate the Offer Status column. This data will provide the most updated insights on the Dashboard page for how many offers you’ve made for each interview type as a result of using Byteboard!

3. Candidate Distribution

The Candidate Distribution metric displays the distribution of Byteboard candidate performance ratings from all of your Byteboard candidates.

  • The graph depicts the total number of finalized candidates overall by top-level rating as well as the percentage of each rating against the total.

*Note — the Candidate Distribution chart doesn’t include interviews marked as Incomplete.
As of 6/1/2023 the Candidate Distribution chart Other category encompasses the newer Leaning Strong and Needs Improvement ratings as well as the legacy More Review rating. View your Candidates table tab to view the breakdown for each candidate rating category.

If over time your candidate distribution is showing an unusually high proportion of Strong or Poor ratings, reach out to the Byteboard team and we’ll work together with you to determine if a recalibration of your account’s interview grading rubrics may better suit your hiring needs and success metrics! Depending on your goals and process, a high number of Leaning Strong or Needs Improvement candidates may also be a good indication that a re-calibration is needed.


4. Byteboard Benchmark Report

The Byteboard Benchmark Report gives you a snapshot of benchmark metrics companies using Byteboard are seeing on average.

Notion image
  • Avg Onsite-Offer Rate — Byteboard customers on average see an average onsite-to-offer rate of 49% compared to the industry average of 25%
    • This represents the percentages of candidates who receive an offer after being invited to take an onsite interview, typically the final interview round(s) before the offer stage
  • Average Onsite Hours Saved Per Hire — This metric represents the number of engineering hours saved because of the increased onsite-to-offer rate achieved from using Byteboard.
    • i.e., (the number of on-sites needed at the industry average rate of 25% onsite-to-offer minus the actual number of on-sites) multiplied by 4 hours per onsite
