Note that Take-Home Tests require selecting a question that will be used in the pad. Using a question for a Live Interview is optional.

  • Enter in a tag name and click the Create button

This will be the tag you use in Lever to generate a pad link at the trigger hiring stage. In this example we are using the tag name "coderpad live".

Using the CoderPad integration with Lever

The CoderPad integration will look for the candidates with the tag you configured in your CoderPad Lever Integration, for example "coderpad live". You can add a tag to a candidate by clicking Add tag on the their profile and typing the name of the tag.

When adding the tag for the first time, you will be asked to confirm you want to create a new tag. For full instructions, refer to our help article on adding and managing tags.

You can also automatically apply your CoderPad tag to candidates that apply to specific jobs, by adding the tag in the posting editor for that job.

When a candidate with the CoderPad tag is advanced to the stage configured in Step 2 (see above), CoderPad will generate a pad for them. The link to the pad will the listed on the candidate's profile in Lever.

If a candidate has had your configured CoderPad tag applied to their profile automatically via the job posting and you wish to exempt that candidate from a CoderPad interview session, simply remove the tag from their candidate profile before advancing them to the configured trigger stage.

To share the CoderPad link with candidates, copy the CoderPad link from their profile and include it in your scheduling email.

Once the CoderPad interview session has been completed, the same link can be used to playback the session.
