Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Filtered allows you to seamlessly add Filtered's assessment to a job's interview plan. In this article, we will cover how to:


  • Enable the Greenhouse/Filtered Integration
  • Add Filtered Stage to Job’s Interview Plan
  • Configure the Filtered Stage
  • Send and Review the Test


Enable the Greenhouse/Filtered Integration

Note: To verify your identity, the Greenhouse Support Team might request you provide a Support Verification Code before adding the API key to your organization's account. 


Add Filtered Stage to Job’s Interview Plan

Once the Greenhouse/Filtered integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the Filtered assessment as an Interview stage. 

To do this for an existing job, navigate to a job (All Jobs>Job Name) and click Job Setup from the Job navigation bar.


From the Job Setup page, navigate to Interview Plan on the left-hand panel. Scroll down the page and click + Add a Stage.


From the Add Stage dialog box, select the Filtered stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan.




Configure Filtered Stage

Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit Take Home Test. Use the provided drop-down menu to choose assessments that you have previously set up in Filtered. 

Select the appropriate assessment and assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessments. When finished, click Save.

Note: Keep in the mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be done in Filtered. 

Send and Review the Test

When candidates are moved into the Filtered interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link.

Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by Filtered. 

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:



Once the candidate has submitted their test, the Interview Kit will contain a link to view the submitted test on Filtered.


After you click on the Interview Kit on the candidate’s profile, you’ll be taken to a page where the URL is available to view the test results on Filtered.
