This article is for setting up a two-way integration between SeekOut and Greenhouse. To learn about the one-way export feature, see our article here.
Sort through candidate data from your ATS using SeekOut's powerful search engine and filters. Your Greenhouse data is mirrored within SeekOut every day, and SeekOut enriches your data with social links, work history, and education. Greenhouse Stage and Status filters are available in a collapsible search menu.
Before You Begin
Please contact your Customer Success Manager or our support team so we can coordinate your integration setup.
Your Greenhouse account must have the developer permission "Manage ALL organization’s API Credentials" enabled.
See the section in this Greenhouse article Configure User Setup Permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting for steps on how to set this up.
Your Greenhouse login and your SeekOut login must both use the same email address when setting up the integration.
Create your API Key
Login to your Greenhouse dashboard and click the Configuration icon at the top right. Navigate to the Dev Center, then click API Credential Management.
On the next page, click the Create New API Key button. Select Harvest as your API Type, SeekOut as your Partner, and enter a description.
Click Manage Permissions, and your new API Key will be available to you. Click Copy to copy the key to your clipboard.
Click I have stored the API Key to close the window. The Harvest API permissions page will open automatically.
Harvest API Permissions
Check the box next to each of the following permissions:
Click Save at the bottom of the page when you're done.
For detailed information on how to configure API keys in Greenhouse, see their documentation here.
Click your initials at the top right of the SeekOut dashboard, then select Integrations.
Don't see the Integrations option in your menu? Contact your Customer Success Manager or email@example.com and ask to enable ATS integrations for your org.
Connecting to Greenhouse
On the Integrations page, click + Add a Connection. Locate Greenhouse Harvest from the list of integrations and click the Connect button.
Note: If you have set up an integration previously, click the + next to the list of integrations at the top of the page to open the Add a Connection pop-up.
On the Capabilities tab, check the box next to Rediscovery. Check Disable Attachments to remove attachments like resumes, cover letters, and other files from your candidates in SeekOut. Click Confirm Choices to continue to the next step.
Review the requirements on the Permissions tab and click I'm ready.
On the Credentials tab, enter your API Key in the Harvest Key field.
Click Submit to save your credentials. SeekOut will automatically attempt to verify your connection. When successful, Greenhouse will appear at the top of your Integrations page with a green check mark.
Removing the Integration
On the Integrations page, click the arrow next to a connected integration to Edit or Remove the integration from your SeekOut account.
The ATS is connected and SeekOut is indexing candidates from GreenHouse into SeekOut. This process takes up to four hours. Not all candidates will be visible in the Your ATS tab during the Indexing phase.
Connected / Start ATS Search
Candidates have been indexed from GreenHouse into SeekOut. Candidates can be viewed in the Your ATS tab. The index of GreenHouse candidates is updated every four hours.
Click Start ATS Search to go to the Your ATS tab.
How to use Rediscovery
Click Your ATS on the Search page to view candidates from GreenHouse.
Your ATS has the same search functions that are available in the Public Profiles tab. Use keywords, Boolean, power filters, and diversity filters to refine your search.
Unique features in Your ATS
The Your ATS tab has two additional features:
- a set of filters specific to your ATS (highlighted in blue below)
- The candidate's status, recruiter, job application, and contact information from GreenHouse (highlighted in yellow below)
ATS Filters (blue)
The following filter categories are viewable on the Your ATS tab:
- Rejection Reason
- Name of the recruiter assigned to the candidate in the ATS
- Last Updated
The exact filters available will depend on the data in the org's GreenHouse instance. For example, if the org does not have any candidates in GH assigned to the Technical Phone Screen stage, then that filter will not be shown in SeekOut.
Candidate ATS Status (yellow)
An overview of the candidate's status in GreenHouse.
- Date updated
- All of the candidate's email addresses from the ATS are listed
- All of the candidate's phone numbers from the ATS are listed
Note: if Disable Attachments is toggled in the GreenHouse Rediscovery connection on the Integrations page, then attachments will not appear in this box.
SeekOut uses the candidate's LinkedIn URL as the main identifier for matching their ATS profile to their SeekOut profile. If there is no LinkedIn URL found in the candidate's resume, other pieces of information will be used to try to match the candidate including github urls, job history, education history, etc.
When a profile isn't matched, SeekOut will not enrich it with additional info. The profile will appear without a LinkedIn URL in the Your ATS tab. Only info mirrored from the ATS (including the resume) will be shown in the profile.
SeekOut aggregates candidate data from your ATS and displays interactive charts for diversity, location, current/previous company, job title, and much more. Hover your mouse over a row to see how many candidates share that data point, and click on a row or use filters to refine your results even further.
