Fingerprint for Success (F4S) is a human development platform with a dedicated people analytics engine that is all about helping you select your top candidates through predicting their top motivations and attitudes at work.

We support the hiring process by allowing you to compare your final shortlisted candidates by identifying any potential team frictions, ideal communication styles and affinities through a simple interface that shows real-time which candidate is a better match for the role and the team culture.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Fingerprint For Success (F4S) allows you to seamlessly add the F4S assessment to a job's interview plan.

In this article:

Enable the Greenhouse/F4S integration

If you already have an F4S Organization plan, you can get your API key from the API tab of your organization’s settings page:

Otherwise, contact your F4S representative ( to receive your API key.

Once you have received your API key, click here to open a ticket with Greenhouse or if logged in to your Greenhouse account, click the “Get help” widget in the bottom left of your screen.

You will be prompted to add a search topic in the help window. Search for the name of the integration you are requesting to be enabled, but keep in mind you will need to scroll through to select “No that answer was not helpful” after the recommended articles:


Select the email contact method to fill out the Support form:

Note: Do not send the API key in this initial email. API Keys allow access to sensitive data and must be kept secret. If an API Key is shared in an email and your email is intercepted by a malicious third party or your email account is hacked, the hacker would be able to view and access your API Key. For this reason, we require API Keys to be shared securely using SendSafely, Greenhouse’s secure data transfer platform.

The Greenhouse Technical Support team will send an email confirming the ticket has been created and may require account verification before they can receive your API key. The Greenhouse Technical Support team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key. A notification will be sent to the Greenhouse Technical Support team after you have entered your API key and they will email you to confirm that your API key has been set up in your account and your integration is enabled.

Add F4S assessment stage to job’s interview plan

Once the Greenhouse/F4S integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the F4S 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 F4S stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan.

Configure the F4S assessment 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 F4S.

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

When candidates are moved into the F4S interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:

Or click Select Interview Kit from the candidates list:

Once there click the View Report button.

This will take you into the F4S app and automatically connect you to the candidate. From there you can use the full power of the F4S platform to compare, benchmark, rank and assess your candidates in the context of your team and company.
