Exporting to Lever

Recommended: Export from a project

To export all candidates in a project to Lever, go to your SeekOut project, click the Export icon and choose Export All to Lever Opportunities.

Note Contact information such as email addresses and phone numbers will only appear in your export if you click Get Email for All and Get Phone for All before exporting.

Alternatively, you can export select candidates from SeekOut by clicking the box next to their profile, clicking Export and then selecting Export X to Lever Opportunities. With both methods, clicking Export to Lever will cause a pop-up window will appear.

You can select a job from the dropdown menu or export the candidates as prospects.

If successful, you will see a confirmation pop-up message that says "Export Complete."

Additional Notes

Duplicate Profiles

By default, SeekOut will not transmit profiles that have already been successfully exported. Candidates that have been exported will display a confirmation icon and the name of your ATS in their SeekOut profile.

Check the box Include previously exported candidate(s) if you're exporting the same candidates to your ATS again.

Note: Lever supports limited duplicate check functionality. If you export the same candidate twice but with a small change (such as exporting a candidate to a different job or adding a phone number to their SeekOut profile before sending them to your ATS), then two records will be created in Lever. When you navigate to Lever and click on one of the duplicate profiles, Lever should ask if you want to merge the two candidates.
