  • Give the assessment a name, this name will become the tag used to trigger the assessment to be used from Lever.
  • Choose the number of days the Candidate and their references have to respond.
  • Select the survey the references will receive for this assessment.
  • Select any additional Searchlight assessment preferences, and Save.
  • Repeat these steps to add any additional assessments, but make sure you have at least your default set up before moving on to enable the integration. 

Step 2: Connect the integration

  • In the Searchlight platform, in the left side menu, select the Lever Integration page, and then select the Settings tab.
  • Click Authorize with Lever
  • Authorize the Searchlight app by clicking Accept in the modal

Step 3: Configure integration preferences 

  • You will be automatically prompted to fill out the options form, if this form does not display please contact Searchlight support.
  • In a separate window, navigate to your Lever Integrations and API settings page.
