Creating a job

  • Create an Opening (job) in Bullhorn

  • After 5 minutes, the job will be created in Alva.

  • Open Alva and navigate to the settings section of the job position to complete the rest of the set-up process by; selecting relevant assessments, linking them to specific statuses in Bullhorn, selecting a relevant email template, and adjusting any other assessment-related settings


Inviting Candidates

As soon as the status of a candidate is changed in Bullhorn to the relevant status you have linked to the assessment (via the job settings in Alva), the test invitation will be sent to the candidate via email.


How to use multiple assessment types using a Kombo Integration

You can manage not only psychometric tests, but also coding test and interviews through your ATS. Prerequisite is to create a stage in your ATS for each of the assessments.

We recommend creating following stages:

  • For psychometrics tests: “Alva Assessment”

  • For coding tests: “Alva coding test”

  • For interviews: “Alva Interview”
    (Note: If you have multiple interviews, then create a separate stage for each interview)

How to invite your candidates using the ATS.

Step 1: One time setup of the job settings in Alva

  1. Go to the Job position settings in Alva

  2. Click Add Assessment & select the assessment you require

  3. Select a Stage from your ATS & link that stage to an Alva assessment

Step 2: Send candidate invitations

You send candidate invitations simply move the candidate to the relevant stage.

  • If you move a candidate to the relevant stage for coding tests, the candidate will receive a email invitation for the coding test.

  • If you move a candidate to an interview stage, you will see a “interview link” in the candidate’s results section. Which will lead directly to the Interview page in Alva.

  • Results of all these assessments will come to the results section, where you see the psychometric test results currently.


View Results

When a candidate completes their test(s), their results will instantly get posted into the candidate's profile.

This is available in the Notes section.

If, for any reason, you make a change to the test profile that is used for a given position, the updated role fit score will be re-written.

By clicking on the URL next to view results, you will be able to view the full test results in Alva.
