Before launching Greenhouse Onboarding with a Greenhouse Recruiting integration, we recommend testing your new hire flow. This helps your organization ensure that newly hired candidates will reach Greenhouse Onboarding correctly.
In this article, we'll cover:
- How to set up your Greenhouse Recruiting integration
- How to create and hire a test candidate in Greenhouse Recruiting
- How to convert your test candidate into a test new hire
Map fields from Greenhouse Recruiting to Greenhouse Onboarding
Before you can test your integration, you'll want to make sure that you've mapped your Greenhouse Onboarding fields to the fields in Greenhouse Recruiting. This will ensure that your new hires' information is imported correctly.
Learn how to map fields from Greenhouse Recruiting to Greenhouse Onboarding.
Hire a test candidate in Greenhouse Recruiting
After you've configured your Greenhouse Recruiting integration and mapped your fields, create a test candidate in Greenhouse Recruiting.
Fill in the necessary fields for your test candidate, with particular emphasis on the information you want to test in Greenhouse Onboarding.
For your candidate's email, create a modified demo email tied to your current work email (or the email connected to your Greenhouse Recruiting and Greenhouse Onboarding accounts). This will allow you to receive your test candidate's emails in your inbox and create a test account for the new hire in Greenhouse Onboarding.
Once you've created your test candidate, Greenhouse Recruiting will direct you to the candidate's profile automatically.
From your candidate's profile, click Move Stage to move your test candidate to the Offer stage.
Click Manage Offer, then fill in your test candidate's offer details. Make sure to fill out their Location, Department, and Employment Status.
Click Save when you're done.
If needed, request approval from any required approvers to hire this test candidate.
Next, click Mark Candidate as Hired.
Your test candidate will be marked as hired in Greenhouse Recruiting and transferred automatically to Greenhouse Onboarding as a pending hire.
Convert your test pending hire to a new hire
Your test candidate will now appear in Greenhouse Onboarding as a pending hire.
Onboard this pending hire to convert your test candidate to a new hire and create an employee profile.
Test the new hire flow
Once you've onboarded your test hire, you'll want to navigate to their employee profile to review your organization's setup.
Use the search bar from your homepage navigation bar to search for your test employee. Click on their name in the dropdown to open their employee profile.
In the test new hire's profile, navigate to the Admin tab.
Click Send "Welcome to the Team" Email.
Navigate to your email inbox and open your test hire's Welcome to the team email. Review the email to make sure all email tokens are populating correctly.
Next, click Get Started in your welcome email to create a Greenhouse Onboarding account for your test employee.
You can now begin reviewing the new hire onboarding flow. Follow this checklist to make sure you've reviewed every part of the new hire experience.
If everything looks good, you're ready to launch Greenhouse Onboarding with your Greenhouse Recruiting integration.
