Connection Stages 


The ATS is connected and has started indexing candidates from Lever into SeekOut. The initial indexing process will run in a full index mode. Full index processing time can vary depending on the number of candidates and amount of candidate data in your system. Not all candidates will be visible in the Your ATS tab during the indexing phase. 

After indexing has completed, the integration will switch to delta mode and index any changes in candidate data. The integration connection status will change to Connected.

Connected / Start ATS Search 

Candidates have been indexed from Lever into SeekOut. Candidates can be viewed in the Your ATS tab. The index of Lever candidates is updated every four hours. 

Click Start ATS Search to go to the Your ATS tab. 

How to use Rediscovery

Click Your ATS on the Search page to display candidates from Lever.

Unique features in Your ATS 

The Your ATS tab has two additional features:  

  • A set of filters specific to your ATS (highlighted in blue below)¬†

  • The candidate's status, job application, resume, and contact information from Lever (highlighted in yellow below)
