Set up a hiring process to automatically create pads

1. As a SmartRecruiters admin, click Settings / Admin in the profile menu and navigate to Hiring Process.

Smartrecruiters dashboard with the "Settings/admin" selection in the profile menu highlighted and the settings page displayed. On the settings page an arrow points to "hiring process" under the configuration section.

2. Click Edit to make changes to your hiring process. 

3. Add a Skills Test where desired in your hiring funnel.

4. Open the Skills Test menu, and click Assessments.

Under the "interview" section for a job roll, the skills test option is selected, and there is a dropdown menu below this with "assessments" highlighted.

5. Click Configure.

The "configure assessments for skills test" page is open, the preferred tab is selected, and the "configure" button is highlighted.

6. You should see a list of Live Questions from your CoderPad account. Select the question you want to use during the Skills Test stage in the hiring process.

In this example we are using a standard CoderPad pad with no preloaded question.


7. Switch Auto-Triggered to on to automatically generate a CoderPad link once a candidate has reached the Skills Test stage for a job.


Once you have configured the hiring process – as described in the set up instructions – and a candidate has moved into the Skills Test stage for a job, a CoderPad link is automatically generated in the Assessments section of the SmartRecruit dashboard.

Copy and paste the generated pad link to share with your candidate and interviewer(s).

✅ Keep in mind that pads generated via the SmartRecruiters integration will have pad titles using the candidate’s “[first name] [last name]’s interview” format.

Also note that changes in the state of a pad (e.g., not started, started, ended) are not reflected in SmartRecruiters, but may be found on CoderPad.
