How to use the integration:

Import position from Lever

Candidates you start conversations with on cord about this position will now be auto-forwarded to the associated position on Lever. New Candidates will be listed under the Lead section of your pipeline.

Link existing cord positions to Lever

You are also able to associate any position on cord with an existing Lever one.

Click on a position and scroll all the way down to the section called ‘Link your ATS position’. A drop down will provide the available positions. Once a position has been selected, scroll down and click on “Save Position” to complete the association.

Automatically send candidates to Lever

With the positions linked, candidates will now automatically be sent to the Lead stage in Lever. A conversation is started when you message a candidate and they accept, or vice versa.

Manually send candidates to Lever

If you do not wish for your candidates to be automatically forwarded from cord to Lever, you can turn this off in your Settings. The position will still be linked with the position on Lever, and you can manually send the candidate to that position by pressing the ATS button in the top right corner of the conversation.

Partner Integration FAQs

I have a valid Lever account but I can’t connect

To connect your cord account, you need to be a Super Admin on Lever. Lever only grants permission to connect to a third party to Super Admins.

My position isn’t showing up on cord. Where is it?

Please check that your job posting distribution setting on Lever is set to external. Internal / unlisted / closed jobs will not appear. Please go to your Lever account to change the visibility of your job.

What information is autofilled from Lever when I import a position?

When you import a job from Lever to cord, the job title + job description will automatically populate. You’ll need to add the other details yourself.

When does the candidate CV send to Lever?

If you have automatic forwarding togged on (via Settings > Integrations), the CV will automatically send when the conversation is started. A conversation is started when you message a candidate and they accept, or visa versa. If you have automatic forwarding switched off, you can choose to send the CV to Lever at any point after the conversation is started, via the button in the top right corner of your inbox.

Where does the candidate CV go in Lever?

The candidate’s CV will go to the Lead section in the pipeline of the associated job.

Who is assigned as the opportunity owner on Lever?

If the cord account used has a matching email with an account under Lever, that person will be credited as the owner of the opportunity/candidate when sent from cord to lever.

Each cord user will need to go to Settings > Integrations and connect their Lever account themselves.
