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

To get started using Alva with Greenhouse, you can read the below article, or you can watch this brief video that takes you through the basic steps:

How to configure Alva as a stage in your pipeline

Step 1: Starting from Job Dashboard, go to "Job Setup" (1), "Interview Plan" (2) and "Add a Stage" (3).

Step 2: A menu will appear. Click on "Alva Labs" (1) and then "Add" (2).

Now that you have configured Alva tests as a stage in your pipeline your next step should be choosing a test profile.

How to choose test profile

Step 1: Choosing a test profile is done in the Alva website. Starting from Alva, click on the relevant job.

Step 2: In the job menu, click "Settings" (1). Then click on the arrow (2) next to "Test assessment" which opens a drop down menu, click on "Change" (2).

Step 3: Select which test profile you want to use then press "Select" to save you choice.

Please note: The same tests are sent to all candidates. The option to change test profile only changes how the results are interpreted, for more information on test profiles click HERE.

Now the test profile that you chose will be used when viewing scores in Greenhouse. Now you are ready to send the tests!

How to send the Alva tests

Step 1: When all the required configuration is completed you can start sending out tests to candidates. In order to send tests, navigate to one of your candidates that is in the Alva Labs stage and click "Send Test".
