Editing Greenhouse Developer Permissions

You can skip this section and move onto the next section "Creating the Greenhouse Harvest API Key" if you already have Developer Permissions.

Please note, you cannot edit your own Greenhouse user permissions. You may need to ask another Site Admin to follow the following steps.

Step 1. In the Greenhouse instance, at the top-right of page, select the Configure cog icon.

Step 2.  Under the Configure sidebar, select "Users".

Step 3. Select the user you would like to edit permissions for.  Please note, you cannot edit your own Greenhouse user permissions. You may need to ask another Site Admin to follow the following steps.

The other Site Admin will need to have the the following User-Specific Permissions to give you Developer Permissions:

  • Edit another user's advanced permissions

Step 4. Under Developer Permissions section, enable the following Developer Permissions:

  • Manage Job Board related API Credentials
  • Manage ALL organization's API Credentials
  • Manage and configure web hooks

Your user account will now have access to Developer Permissions to create a Greenhouse Harvest API Key.

It may take a few hours or up to 24 hours for Teamable to completely sync to your Greenhouse. Please contact for more details or if the sync takes longer than 24 hours.

Setting Up Greenhouse Logic in Teamable

Having the correct settings in Teamable will allow the integration with Greenhouse to be automatic and hands-off. Once you have added your API key, follow these next steps:

Step 1. On the Integrations Settings page, select the "Candidates as prospects" dropdown and select "Yes".

This will allow Teamable to add all candidates reached to your Greenhouse ATS as Greenhouse Prospects.

Step 2. Select the "Convert to candidate" dropdown and select "Yes".

This will allow Teamable to convert prospects to candidates in Greenhouse upon a positive reply for all new and future Jobs.

Step 3. Scroll down to "Stages" and select the stages that you want Teamable to record and calculate pass-through rates for.

Step 4. In the "Drag and drop the stages to match your team's workflow" section, drag and drop the correct order of your pipeline stages.

Once set up, this will allow Teamable to provide advanced reporting capabilities in the Reports tab.

Step 5. You have the option to select which ATS stage candidates are added to after conversion under "Candidate first stage". Otherwise, we will select "Application Review" as the default stage.

Viewing Greenhouse Metrics and Diversity in Reports

Step 1. Go to the Reports tab.

Step 2. Select the Greenhouse Metrics report to view your candidate pipelines metrics.
