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

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

How to send Alva tests and choose test profile using Jobylon

Step 1: Starting from the dashboard, click on the desired job.

Step 2: Based on which tests you want to configure, you will see 3 buttons “Alva Personality & Logic test”, “Alva Interviews” or “Alva coding test”. In order to configure your settings, press the relevant Alva setting button.

Step 3: Here you can choose test profile (1), select a desired email template (2), as well as which tests you want to send (3).

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.

Step 4: For the final step you need to select which candidates you want to send Alva tests to by ticking the boxes to the left of their names. When this is done you can send out tests to all selected candidates by pressing "Send to Alva Personality & Logic test".

Should you wish to automatically send Alva tests when changing a candidate's status, please follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to 'Pipeline Actions' in a job position.

  2. Click on 'Create Action' next to the desired status you wish to automate.

  3. Choose 'Partner Integrations' for the action type.

  4. Select 'Alva Personality & Logic Test' as the integration & save.

With this setup, whenever a candidate's status is updated to the specified state, the Alva test will be automatically sent to the customer. For optimal organization, we recommend creating a new status named "Alva Tests" specifically for this automation.

How to view test results in Jobylon

In order to view your candidate's results, first access the relevant position.

If you don't see the scores, click on the (1) Customize list and (2) select “Display Alva personality & logic test”. (3) You should see the new results column

To see the detailed results, click on the candidate's name.

From here you can view both the simplified assessment results which are based on which test profile you chose when you configured the Alva settings in Jobylon.

You can also access the detailed test results on the Alva website by clicking the "View detailed results" arrow as shown in the picture (Marked with a red box).

How to use Alva interviews in Jobylon

Step 1: Press the Alva Interviews button and select up to 3 interviews that you want to configure for a job position.

Step 2: To initiate an interview with one or more candidates, simply select the candidates of your choice and click on the "Send to Alva Interviews" button. This will generate an interview card in the Jobylon system for each selected candidate.

It's important to note that candidates will not receive any notifications when they take this action.

Step 3: After clicking on the candidate's name, you'll see the new interview card appear. To begin the interview, click on "Interview this candidate." This will take you to the Alva Labs interview section. Once there, you have the option to assign someone to conduct the interview or choose to interview the candidate yourself.

Step 4: When you publish the interviews in Alva, the results will automatically be posted in Jobylon. The scores will be displayed out of 5. Additionally, you can view a detailed breakdown of the results directly within the card.

How to use Alva coding tests in Jobylon

Step 1: Press the "Alva Coding Tests" button and select the coding tests that you wish to send to candidates.

Step 2: Select the candidates and press “Send to Alva Coding”. The candidate will receive an invitation to complete the coding tests. When the tests are finished, the results will be automatically posted back to Jobylon.
