How to use the integration:

Initiating Applicant360 Background Checks within Lever

During the setup process a trigger stage was selected within Lever at which you would like to initiate the background check process by sending an Invite from Applicant360. If at any time you wish to modify this trigger stage you may do so within Applicant360 under the Admin menu’s integrations tab.

When a candidate enters the trigger stage, Applicant360 automatically sends an invite. Prior to moving to the trigger stage, each candidate must have the appropriate tags assigned within lever to indicate the account (if applicable) and background check package that are required.

A missing piece of information will result in the generation of an error tag. The candidate must be removed from the trigger stage, the missing information must be corrected, and then the candidate must be reinserted into the trigger stage in order to send the invite.

Applicant360 Tags created for use with the Lever Integration

A candidate will be created called “Applicant360 Place Holder DO NOT DELETE”. This candidate may be archived but may never be deleted. Under this candidate, Applicant360 will hold tags for your account (if applicable) and package tags.

  • Accounts (if applicable) will be labeled in the following format: A360-A0000-Account 1 Name
  • Packages will be labeled in the following format: A360-P0000-Package 1 Name
