Sometimes, a candidate will lose track of a take-home test email and need a new link for their test. You can quickly resend a take home test on the candidate's profile.

Note: This article only applies to take home tests created through Greenhouse Recruiting. Partner take home tests cannot be resent.

Resend a take home test (test not submitted)

If a take home test has not been submitted by a candidate yet, the test can be resent directly Take Home Test stage on their candidate profile. Any unsubmitted take home tests will be located under the Pending tab.

Hover on the take home test and click Resend to restart the take home test email process for the candidate.

Resend a take home test after a test has been submitted

If the candidate has submitted a completed a take home test already, or if a user has manually uploaded a completed test on the candidate's behalf, you won't be able to use the Resend Test button.

Instead, you'll need to manually create and resend the take home test to the candidate. You can do this by using the Email button in the top right corner of the candidate profile. 

Use the Email window to write an email to the candidate. Replace the subject line and body with the content from the initial take home test email. If you want to use the existing take home test language, you can use the Activity Feed to find the copy-and-paste the information from the previous email.

However, when manually sending take home tests, you won't be able to re-use assessment links and should direct the candidate to send their completed test in an email reply.

Once the candidate's test is received, you'll need to manually replace the submitted test file in the candidate profile.
