Add "Equip Assessment" stage

Create a new stage named “Equip Assessment” to your Lever pipeline. For more information on adding a new stage, refer to our help article on adding pipeline stages.

Once a candidate is moved to this stage, Equip will automatically send them an assessment that you have previously mapped to the job posting.

The integration is now ready to use!

How to use the integration:

Configuring the assessment on Equip

1. Once the integration is configured, you will be redirected to a page on Equip where you can map Lever job postings with Equip assessments.

For example, Job Posting X is mapped to Equip Assessment Y. If a candidate for X is moved to the Equip Assessment stage on Lever, Equip will automatically email the candidates the link to Y.

2. Select the job posting and the relevant Equip assessment and click on the Map button. This will map the job posting to the Equip assessment.

Once the linking is successful, you should see a tag created on the job posting containing the Equip assessment’s ID.

What should the integration look like in Lever?

Once the candidate completes the assessment, Equip adds a feedback form with a note to the Lever opportunity with the assessment results. 

The feedback form will include a Lever rating, a note with a summary of their scores and a link to open up the detailed assessment report on Equip. You will be able to see the test results, as well as the proctoring summary on Equip.
