Lever: Create a note and add it to a candidate profile

🕙  2 minute read

Use this action to add a note to an existing candidate. In Lever, notes are used to comment or rate a candidate. A note can be a message, or a reaction like Strong yes or No. This will not replace any previously added notes.

How to configure this action

This action requires a preconfigured Lever integration. For more information on integrating Catalytic with other systems, please refer to the Integrations section of our help documentation.

    • Enter the date and time that the note should be considered created. Leave blank to set to the current time. It’s not possible to set a time in the future.
    • This must be formatted using a Unix timestamp, such as 1595371739. unixtimestamp.com has a helpful converter for getting the correct timestamps.

  • Output Field Prefix

    • The step’s name is used as the prefix by default.

What will this output?

This action may generate multiple fields. To help keep output fields organized, the prefix above will be added to the beginning of each of the output field names, separated by two dashes. Each field will result as:{{output-field-prefix--output-field}}

Output fields for this action

  • Note ID

    • The ID associated with the new note.

Sorry about that. What was the most unhelpful part?
