SeekOut integrates with Ascendify, allowing you to export candidate data from SeekOut and turn it into Ascendify candidate profiles complete with contact information and work/education history. Candidate data can be sent to Ascendify attached to an existing job.

This article covers how to set up your integration, as well as how to export candidate info from SeekOut to Ascendify.

Setting up the Ascendify Integration

Before You Begin

You'll need to create a new API key in Ascendify. Save this API key to a safe place; you'll be entering it in SeekOut.

Accessing Integrations

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 support@seekout.com and ask to enable ATS integrations for your org.

Connecting to Ascendify

On the Integrations page, click + Add a Connection. Locate Ascendify 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 Export. Click Confirm Choices to continue to the next step.

On the Credentials tab, enter your API Key from Ascendify and select Production as your Environment. 

Click Submit to save your credentials. SeekOut will automatically attempt to verify your connection. When successful, Ascendify 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.

Testing Your Integration

SeekOut automatically tests your integration after the first time you set it up. Select a job from the dropdown list and click Send Test Candidate to export a test candidate to your ATS.

When successful, Ascendify will appear under the section My Organization's Integrations with the label "Connected." Test your integration again at any time by returning to the integrations page, clicking the three-dot menu next to the name, selecting Edit, and then click Test.

What do I do if my test was unsuccessful?

Confirm that your info is entered correctly in the integration pop-up. If you make any changes to your info, click Save first and then click Test to try again with your updated credentials.

If you've confirmed your connection info is correct and you're still unable to connect, reach out to your Customer Success Manager or email support@seekout.com for assistance.

Exporting from SeekOut to Ascendify

Recommended: Export from a project

To export all candidates in a project to Ascendify, go to your SeekOut project, click the Export icon and choose Export All to Ascendify.

Contact information such as email addresses and phone numbers will only appear in your export if you click Get Email for All and Get Phone for All before exporting.

Alternatively, you can export select candidates from SeekOut by clicking the box next to their profile, clicking Export and then selecting Export X to Ascendify. With both methods, clicking Export to Ascendify will cause a pop-up window will appear.

You can select a job from the dropdown menu. If you don't have email addresses for all candidates, check the box Generate dummy email addresses for candidates.  Click the Export button to export candidates to Ascendify. When successful, you will see a confirmation pop-up message that says "Export Complete."

Export from Search

You can export candidate profiles while on the search page as well. Click More at the top right of the search results and select Export to Ascendify and SeekOut will export all of the candidates on the page to your ATS.
