You can easily connect your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) account to a number of actions using Zapier, a no-code platform that enables you to connect hundreds of other applications to your ATS account.
Creating a Zapier Account & Linking ATS Anywhere
First, you'll need to create an account at Zapier.com
One once you have a Zapier account, you can add the ATS Anywhere Zapier integration.
Before you get started, you'll need to collect your ATS Anywhere API credentials in order to use the integration. To find your API credentials, log in to your ATS account, and go to Account Details. At the bottom of the page, you'll see an icon labeled API Access.
On this page, you'll find an API Key and API Password:
These are your Username and Password to use with Zapier. Note these credentials in a safe place, as you may need to access them again in the future.
Next, you'll need to add ATS Anywhere as an Integration:
- Add the ATS Anywhere Zapier integration to your account.
- Select My Apps from the sidebar
- Then use the Add connection button
- Select ATS Anywhere when the option comes up.
- Use the API Credentials you collected from your API Access page. Enter your API Key as your Username and your API Password as your Password.
- You should now see your connection on the Zapier Apps page
Creating a Zapier Workflow
Select Create Zap in your Zapier account, and select ATS Anywhere from the Apps list.
There are two triggers currently available, Hired Applicant and New Applicant. With these events, you can trigger additional Zapier apps and actions whenever an applicant is hired or applies for a job in your system.
If you haven't yet connected your account to Zapier, you will be prompted to do so at this time. Select Add a New Account from the dropdown in Zapier. You'll be asked for a Username and a Password, and will need to plug in the API credentials that you found previously.
If you have connected, you'll simply need to select the ATS Anywhere option.
Test your trigger to make sure it's connected properly and pulling information from your ATS account, then Continue.
Next, you'll need to connect your request to an Action. In this example, we're going to ask the system to send us an email to a Gmail account:
Select your Action and then click Continue
If you have previously connected your email account, you will select it from the list. If you need to add one for the first time or add an additional email, select +Connect a new account
A window will pop up asking you to select an existing email account. This process will be slightly different depending on what email carrier you use. Just follow the prompts to connect the account you'd like to use.
You can then enter in as many details as you'd like, to set up to whom your Zap is sent and what information it includes.
Test it, checking your email to make sure it came through properly and includes all the information you asked it to share.
You can then Edit (if needed) or Turn on Zap!
That's it, you have successfully set up your Zap!
Select Go to my Zaps to return to your main dashboard.
Zapier has a full User Guide on the right side of your screen that you can access at any step in the process if you run into trouble.
We are constantly adding new options to our API. If you need a different type of API event or API control via Zapier, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work with you to get your use case covered by the integration.
