Limits on candidates invited

Understanding limits to ensure server performance

While you are able to invite unlimited candidates on Coderbyte, we do have several limits for server performance reasons. Less than 1% of our customers ever approach any of the limits.

Assessment limits

On the Pro plan (and older Premium plan) you can invite up to 300 candidates per assessment. 

On the Elite plan you can invite up to 500 candidates per assessment.

Once you hit the candidate limit you can easily clone the assessment and invite more candidates there.

Note: During trial you can invite up to 5 candidates to your account.

Increasing your assessment limits

You can remove the limit on candidates invited per assessment for $99/month or $594/year by contacting support. Please note that your assessment will only show the last 500 candidates invited, but you can find all candidates and reports from Assessment Analytics.

Daily limits

There is a daily limit of 300 candidates per day on the Pro plan across all assessments.

There is a daily limit of 500 candidates per day on the Elite plan across all assessments.

If you need higher daily limits, please inquire about our enterprise plan.

Concurrency limits

While you can invite up to 300 candidates per day, you cannot invite that many candidates simultaneously to take an assessment. There is a concurrency limit of 50 candidates that can take your assessments at a given time. This is an account-wide limit, not a limit per assessment.

This means you can invite 300 candidates at the same time, but only 50 will be allowed to enter and take an assessment. The rest will be in a virtual waiting room and told to retry entering the assessment in a few minutes.

Once candidates start leaving or completing the assessment, more candidates will be able to click begin to start their assessments.

Increasing your concurrency limits

You can increase your limits on a temporary basis for a one-time event (e.g. for a hackathon) or on permanent basis for high-volume evaluations (e.g. talent marketplace).

  • Increase to 100 concurrency (+$299/month)
  • Increase to 200 concurrency (+$399/month)
  • Increase to 300 concurrency (+$499/month)

If you need higher concurrency, please inquire about our enterprise plan.
