As you enjoy the last days of summer, we have some product updates for you to enjoy as well! The CodeSignal Product and Engineering teams have been busy behind the scenes, and this month we're highlighting two exciting steps forward:
Industry Coding & Front-End Development Framework Updates
Two of our Frameworks are now positioned to evaluate even more relevant skills. Both the Industry Coding and Front-End Development Frameworks will now leverage advanced assessment-type questions, which better simulate a real-world work environment by evaluating how a candidate interacts with a variety of coding tools.
Advanced assessment questions incorporate a filesystem and a terminal to more closely mirror the setup a candidate might encounter in their day-to-day role. Certified Evaluations backed by either of these Frameworks will allow candidates to install packages, start services, and run debuggers, in addition to other common real-world tasks.
This change will roll out to all customers automatically. If you have any questions about what this transition means for your Certified Evaluations, please reach out and we'll be happy to help.

CodeSignal Interview is becoming even easier to use and more secure. Hot on the heels of our "recently opened questions" update, we're now surfacing recently used templates in the Interview dashboard for faster access.
Customers can also now opt-in to a native whiteboard experience. This is particularly helpful for those in highly-regulated industries that have strict security mandates. We're looking forward to rolling out exciting new enhancements in the future using this first-party whiteboard, including predefined whiteboard questions.
Finally, users can now access first-party collaborative Jupyter notebooks based on advanced assessment questions. Interviewers can add these notebooks to an interview template, or launch them directly from an interview using the QuickStart tab. Data science candidates are often already accustomed to working with Jupyter notebooks to develop and train new models, and native collaborative notebook support in CodeSignal helps candidates showcase these skills.

Here's a comprehensive list of everything else we pushed live in August, grouped by product area:
- Updated the Suspicion Score experience in Coding Report
- Candidates can now reshare previous scores when clicking on private invitation URLs
- Candidates can now opt into proctoring when clicking on private invitation URLs
- Updated filesystem questions to better surface the "Run Pretty" and "Run Raw" options
- Updated the scoring system UI in Certified Evaluations to show candidates how many points they've earned at the start of each level
- Candidates will now be given the option to fill out a demographic survey from the main dashboard
- Candidates will now receive a confirmation email upon completion of a Pre-Screen
