No more scrambling through emails searching for HackerRank Test Reports.

Instead of digging through your emails for Candidate Test Reports, you can configure a Slack or Microsoft Teams channel to receive notifications for a candidate's test attempts.

With this quick setup, you can receive a candidate Report Summary, test score, candidate information, and a link to the detailed HackerRank Report as a Slack or Teams message.

You can set up a new channel for these notifications. Use this channel to get notifications whenever a candidate takes a test, create separate channels for yourself and your team, or monitor each test in a different channel.

What you’ll need to receive reports:

  • A HackerRank for Work account with access to Tests (if you don’t have one, try it for free now!)
  • A Slack account or a Microsoft Teams account

That’s it!

That’s it! Now you are set to receive HackerRank Test Reports directly as a notification!

Here’s how Test Reports will show up if you follow these steps:

You can repeat the second step for all the tests that you want to receive a notification for. We recommend setting up a channel for tests that you want to monitor. You can also create a Slack/Teams channel as a central repository for all test attempts across your team or company.

Your team can now monitor Test Reports and track candidate attempts inside your messaging platform.
