Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Dover allows users to track candidates through all stages of the hiring process and prevent duplicate outreach by automatically adding Dover candidates to Greenhouse and excluding candidates already in Greenhouse from Dover outreach.

Use the Dover integration on Greenhouse Recruiting

Accessing Greenhouse Recruiting from the Dover app is easy. If a candidate has been added to Greenhouse Recruiting, you'll find a link to their profile in your Greenhouse at Dover > Pipeline and on the candidate thread in Slack.

By default, candidates will be added to your Greenhouse Recruiting when they are interested and you approve them in Dover. Candidates are added to the stage in your Greenhouse Recruiting that corresponds to the first stage of your interview plan, and you can select the appropriate stage during onboarding.

Note: It may take up to one hour for candidates to sync to Greenhouse Recruiting.

Once an interview has been scheduled through Dover, you'll see the event details listed under Interviews on the candidate's profile in Greenhouse Recruiting.

Dover also has the option to add all candidates that we contact as prospects. Speak with your Dover engagement manager if you're interested in this option.

Candidate exclusion

Dover won't reach out to anyone that has had any activity in Greenhouse Recruiting for the previous year, regardless of the job they were sourced for. This applies to prospects as well.

How are candidates tracked?

Dover will track candidates across stages in Greenhouse Recruiting. If a candidate stage is updated in Dover, the candidate will be moved in Greenhouse Recruiting – and vice versa.

  • Recruiter screen / Initial call → Initial Call
  • Hiring manager screen/ Technical phone screen → Pre-onsite
  • Onsite / Face-to-face → Onsite
  • Offer → Offer

If the candidate was rejected or marked as withdrew in Dover, they will be rejected in Greenhouse Recruiting.

Additional resources

Links in Dover are not working

If Dover is adding candidates to Greenhouse Recruiting but the links in Slack or Email aren't working, it means Dover is probably pointing to the wrong Greenhouse Recruiting subdomain. If this is happening, reach out to Dover Support and provide the URL you see when you login to Greenhouse Recruiting.

Examples include:

Unable to find correct job in Dover

When onboarding a new job through Dover, if the dropdown on the ATS Settings page in the Dover app is showing some results but not the one you're looking for, be sure the job is active in Greenhouse Recruiting. Dover only shows active jobs.

Note: Dover uses the internal job name from Greenhouse Recruiting. The internal job name (visible inside Greenhouse Recruiting) and external job name (shown to candidates on your job boards and careers pages) may be different.

If you have more than 100 active jobs or users, please follow the steps below to provide Dover Support with your job name and ID so they can correct the error:

To find the job ID:

Navigate to Greenhouse Recruiting and click on Jobs > select or search for your job > copy the # from the URL in your browser.
