How to use TestGorilla assessments with the SmartRecruiters ATS.
You can connect TestGorilla to your SmartRecruiters account, allowing you to invite candidates to an assessment and see the summarized results inside SmartRecruiters. This article explains how that works. The SmartRecruiters integration is available on the Scale and Business plans and can be enabled by users with Admin or Owner access.
Please check with SmartRecruiters regarding the plan and access level needed on their side to make this work.

You must be a TestGorilla Admin or Owner to be able to complete this step. We also recommend checking with SmartRecruiters to ensure you have the right plan to use integrations
The SmartRecruiters integration must be enabled by our customer success team. Please contact us if you would like to enable it. For security reasons, this request must come from one of the Admins of your TestGorilla account.
We will reach out to SmartRecruiters to obtain the necessary credentials and then turn the integration on for you. Please be aware that this process can take 2 - 5 business days.
Use the integration
Once you receive confirmation from our customer success team that your integration has been enabled, you’ll be able to begin using SmartRecruiters with new assessments.
Create an assessment
Follow the usual steps to create an assessment. Once the assessment is complete and you’re ready to invite candidates, you’ll have the option to invite candidates through TestGorilla or through SmartRecruiters.
|Caution: You cannot change the selection once it's been made. If you want to invite candidates to this assessment through SmartRecruiters, you'll need to select the SmartRecruiters option.|
Under the Invite candidates menu, select SmartRecruiters to make this assessment available in SmartRecruiters.
|Wait . You’ll need to wait for SmartRecruiters to approve the use of the assessment on their side. While this process is automatic, it can take up to 24 hours (though is usually much faster).|
There are two ways to invite candidates to take your assessment, and both are accessed from inside of your SmartRecruiters account:
- Add triggers in SmartRecruiters. You can add triggers to specific steps in your hiring process so a TestGorilla assessment will be sent when you move a candidate to the appropriate hiring step. You can read about that here.
- Invite candidates individually. You can invite candidates individually, through the process described below.
|In SmartRecruiters, find the candidate you want to send an assessment.|
Select Skills Test in the Assessment tab on the right side of the screen.
Select TestGorilla as the vendor.
|Locate the assessment in the list and click Select.|
|In the pop-up window, click Select and then Send to send the assessment.
Going back to the Assessments tab, you’ll see that the assessment was sent and is pending.
The candidate will receive their assessment invitation from TestGorilla within 30 minutes.
The candidate results will be shared in the SmartRecruiters assessments tab, once the assessment has been completed. Included is:
- An overall summary of their results (score out of 100)
- A link to their candidate page in TestGorilla
To view the full results, click See Results to open the candidate results page inside of TestGorilla.
Disable the integration
If you decide to switch ATS platforms or, for some other reason, no longer want to use the integration with SmartRecruiters, contact the TestGorilla support team to disable it.
Can a SmartRecruiters user see candidate results if they are not a user of TestGorilla?
No. SmartRecruiters users who are not users on your company’s TestGorilla account will not be able to access the candidate results page. They will be prompted to request access from the TestGorilla account owner as in the below screenshot.
Why aren’t my TestGorilla assessments appearing in SmartRecruiters?
ATS integrations will only recognize assessments created after the integration was enabled. You will need to create a new assessment to send via SmartRecruiters. Additionally, you will only be able to send each assessment once. If you’ve already sent the assessment to the candidate in question, it will not show up on the assessment selection screen.
Why doesn’t the Integrations tab appear in my user menu?
Because integrations can only be enabled or disabled by the Account owner or an Admin, the tab is only available to those users.
