So you've been hooked up with free access to Rectxt for my SmartRecruiters account? Here's what you need to do to get texting!

We're really excited to be partnered with SmartRecruiters and we've invited you as part of a select group to help give us feedback on the new integration (in return for a free account for the next 3 months).

Our only ask is that you share you honest feedback with us - and we'll reach out a few times to check in.


If you want a quick preview you can see it in action here

Signing up is super easy and we've made it self-service which means you won't require your IT department. Setting up will take less time than reading this article.

Follow these steps to get texting with your candidates in minutes (for free!).

Part 1: Getting Rectxt started (about 5 minutes)

  1. Download and then sign up with your chosen username and password:

2. Click 'START PLAN' for the Unlimited Monthly box (the middle one):

3. Confirm the correct plan has been selected (it should look like this) and click 'CHECK OUT'

4. Enter the promo code (this will be emailed to you) and click APPLY.

This gives you free 3 months ($105 total value) and the Total will show $0.

Next, enter your credit card (our authentication system uses this information to protect against spambots) and verify that you're a human :)

5. Now you can choose a new phone number from any state in the US, or any province in Canada:

6. Now you're ready to start texting!

Rectxt works great on its own, and you can text any 10 digit phone number on any website. Add yourself and send a text message.

Please note: if you do not cancel or downgrade your account by the end of the 3 months your credit card will be charged $35 and your membership will continue on a monthly basis. We will send you a reminder email in the 11th week to remind you :)

Part 2: Integrating SmartRecruiters (about 2 minutes)

Connecting your SmartRecruiters ATS with Rectxt will allow users to send individual texts and launch text campaigns directly from within SmartRecruiters with all conversations instantly being saved under each candidate profile within the ATS. This means that any user on the SmartRecruiters account can view and read a log of all text message conversations with candidates at any time.

1. Access the Rectxt settings page by clicking the 3 kebab dots in the top right of the Rectxt extension

2. Go to your Rectxt Settings page and click on the SmartRecruiters logo in the 'INTEGRATIONS' tab

3. Press CONNECT

4. A new window will open. If you are not already logged into SmartRecruiters, log in to it now.

Click ALLOW ACCESS

Your Rectxt account should now be connected to your SmartRecruiters account :)

5. Refresh your SmartRecruiters page then open a contact profile and click on the Rectxt icon to launch the Chrome extension and start texting. You can also text candidates by clicking on the Rectxt icon in the browser extension tray (both will work!)

If you have any trouble please use the support section of the setting page and we'll figure it out together :)

Happy texting (and stay safe)!
