Using the Crosschq integration

Follow these steps to configure default templates for different types of jobs: 

  1. On the Lever integration page in Crosschq, scroll down and click the Create Default button.
  2. Enter a Name and Description for the template.
  3. From the drop-down, choose a Job Function and enter a Lever Tag that corresponds to the job for this template. Use the - and + buttons to specify how many of each type of reference you want for this job template.

  5. Back in the Lever admin facility, it's important to ensure that any job that you create contains the same tag—so that the default template will match the job. In the figure below, you can see where to add the tag.

Enabling the Hiring Status Webhook

The hiring status webhook automatically updates the hiring status of a candidate in Lever when the candidate is hired in Crosschq.

NOTE: If a candidate is not hired, the owner of the candidate will receive an email two weeks after Crosschq is complete that prompts the owner to indicate if the candidate was hired or not. When the owner responds to this email message, the status will update in both Crosschq and Lever.

Follow the steps below to enable this webhook:

  1. Login to Crosschq, click on Organization Settings > Integrations, then click on Lever, click the Manage button
  2. Copy the Lever Webhook Hired URL field.
