To configure webhooks on the Lever application, please follow the steps outlined below. The Velocity Global implementation team will be available to guide you through the process.

  • In Lever, navigate to Settings > Integrations and API > Webhooks
  • Scroll down to the 'Candidate Hired' webhook

  • Click + Add webhook
  • The Velocity Global team will guide you on completing the webhook setup

Create a custom profile form

Lever does not include all the information by default that the Velocity Global Work Platform™ requires to hire employees. Therefore, your team will need to add this information manually. The Velocity Global implementation team will guide you through each step. 

To create the Velocity Global form, complete the following:

  • In Lever, navigate to Settings > Forms
  • Click New Form

New Form button outlined on Form Settings page in Lever

  • To add questions to the form, click the + Add Another Question button at the bottom of the editor.
    • Use the up/down arrow keys on each question block to rearrange the order of questions on the form.
    • To make a question mandatory, hover over the question block and click the asterisk (*) in the upper-right corner.
    • When a question is marked as mandatory, the user filling out the form will be required to input a value in order to submit the form.
  • Fill in the following fields as shown in the table below.
    • Type in the form name e.g. ‘Velocity Global Form’
