Once you have activated Alva's integration with Teamtailor you are ready to start sending out assessments to your job applicants through Teamtailor. 

To use Alva, the first step is to add an Alva trigger to your recruitment process in Teamtailor. We recommend adding Alva's assessments as early as possible to the process. This will help you decrease biases and start hiring based on actual predictors of success on the job. You can read more about our recommended recruitment process HERE.

Select the stage that you want users to receive the assessments. Candidates that are moved in to this stage will get the invite for the assessments. You can either use the assessments on the Inbox, so all candidates are automatically sent the assessments, or a special stage that you move candidates to.
