Integration with Lever

Lever is a top-rated recruiting software that helps your talent teams scale recruitment efforts and hire people faster.
Mercer | Mettl integration with Lever allows you to send assessments to candidates in the the configured stage and view the results from within Lever.


Enable the Lever / Mercer | Mettl integration

To enable the integration, your organization must have an Enterprise account with Mettl, and your Access role must be Super Admin in Lever to set up the integration. Contact our Support Team and raise a request to enable the Lever integration.

On Lever, a Super Admin will need to toggle-on the webhook group (ie: 'Candidate Stage Change') on the webhooks page in their account settings for the data to begin sending.
Lever Account Settings > Integrations and API > Webhooks > Candidate Stage Change

Our team will also send you an encrypted link using which you may authorize your Lever Credentials and select the Trigger Stage of your choice as per the below screenshots (Trigger Stage is a job stage in Lever which will be used to send Mettl Test to a candidate).

Note: In case you would like to create a custom Trigger Stage, please raise a request with the Lever Support Team to do so. Once the custom stage has been created, you may then use this encrypted link to select the newly created stage.

Sending a Mercer | Mettl test to a Job Applicant

  1. Adding Test to Job (using tags) - The default assessment and its security settings is configurable for each job using tags in the job. 

    When new opportunities/ candidates are added to a job, the opportunity will inherit the same tags in the job. These tags can also be directly added and used in an opportunity. You can find the list of mandatory and optional tags below.
    1. Mandatory Input Tags
      1. "Mettl Test - {Assessment Id}" : The customer may login to Mettl to retrieve the assessment ID. This helps Mettl understand which assessment is to be triggered.
        E.g. "Mettl Test - 367696"

    2. Optional Input Tags
      1. "Mettl BT - {Count}": Browsing Tolerance – Basis the limit specified, the test taker gets warnings each time they navigate away and the test is stopped as soon as the limit is breached.
        E.g. "Mettl BT - 4"

      2. "Mettl VP", "Mettl VP - screen" : Visual proctoring – If this tag is added, the test taker will need a webcam to attempt the assessment. The webcam and screened will be captured throughout the duration of the test and any suspicious activities will be flagged.
        E.g. "Mettl VP", "Mettl VP - screen" (screen option can be used to switch on Candidate's Screen Capture option in Visual Proctoring options.)

      3. "Mettl OTP" : To start the test, the test taker will need to enter an OTP that would be sent to their email ID.

        In the given image, you can see an example of the Mettl tags added to job.

  2. Sending Test to Candidate - Once the opportunity/ candidate is added to the job and moved to the trigger stage, an assessment is sent to the candidate with the configured settings as indicated through the optional tags described above.

  3. Monitoring Test Progress - At each stage of the candidate's test journey, tags are added and updated in the candidate's opportunity on Lever. When the test is:
    1. Sent to the test taker, a new tag is added - "Mettl Test - {Assessment Id} - Sent"

    2. Started by the test taker, the tag is updated to - "Mettl Test - {Assessment Id} - In Progress"

    3. Completed, the tag is updated to - "Mettl Test - {Assessment Id} - Completed"

  4. Additionally, a new note is created in the candidate's profile with the following information:

    Test Name
    Report Link
    Performance Category     (When set in the Mettl Dashboard, provides labels against specific ranges of scores)
    Completion Mode            (To indicate to the admin if the test was completed due to timer running down to zero, breach of navigation limits, internet disconnection, or the test taker clicking the Finish Test button)
    Credibility Index              (When visual proctoring is enabled, this can have values of High, Medium or Low to indicate how likely it is that the test taker may have cheated.)
