Inviting candidates is easy. There are two possible ways to invite candidates to complete the assessments. You can either create a public signup page for your job position to share with the candidates, or you can manually add candidates and send personal email invitations directly from Alva.

If you are using Alva through Teamtailor or Jobylon please follow specific instructions;
-Instructions for how to invite candidates through Teamtailor HERE.

You can leverage this template to communicate to the candidates about Alva assessment. 

Manually invite candidates

Press “Add candidate” and type in the candidate information to add the candidate. An email will automatically go out if you don't deactivate the "Send email invitation"-function.

You can trigger an automatic reminder email to multiple candidates at the same time. Just check the boxes left to each name and press "Send reminder".

If you have a coding test configured

You can choose if you want to send out the coding test after the logic & personality tests.

To do that, first, when you add a candidate, select "Personality test · Logic test" under "Which tests to send now".

Second, when it's time to send a coding test, select the candidates, select "Invite candidates" in the dropdown list, select "Coding test" in the modal, and press "Send invitation".

You can also send both Psychometric (Logic & Personality) and Coding tests at once if you select "Personality test · Logic test · Coding test" under "Which tests to send now" when you add a candidate.

It is not possible to send Psychometric tests after Coding Test. If you attempt to only send a Coding Test first on the job, which has both Psychometric and Coding Test configured, the candidate will see both types of tests available on their application page.

Create a public signup page 

Go to the job position you have created on Alva Labs and go to Settings, the tab to the far right within your job position. Press “Public page” at the bottom and enable the public signup page. 

Just copy the link to the public signup page and share with candidates to allow them to sign up and receive a personal link to complete the tests and allow the data to feed into the "Candidate evaluation tab" for this specific position.

Customize the title and instructions

If you leave the field for “Page title” as well as “Page instructions” empty they will auto-populate with a prewritten statement. Press “Preview” to see this message. Otherwise, you can add your own title and instructions, press “Save” and then preview the page to find your customized content on the assessment signup page. 

Alva support

Leverage the intercom to chat with an Alva representative for support. You will find this symbol in the bottom right corner on the platform.
