Sending 1:1 text messages

Recruiters can text new candidates from any screen where a candidate's phone number is displayed. All you need to do is click on the highlighted phone number and the Rectxt chrome extension will automatically open and import the candidate's details. You can also click on the Rectxt tab on the right-hand margin. If you are already texting with a candidate then Rectxt will automatically open up the Chats tab so you can continue your conversation with ease:

Recruiters can also send text messages directly from the candidate preview in the NEW jobs dashboard:

Sending 1:Many Text Messages (Mass Messages)

Recruiters can send group text messages (we call them Mass Messages) to multiple candidates at once directly from a page with bulk-action functionality (ability to click multiple candidates at the same time as seen below). These messages convert to 1:1 messages when the candidate responds so they won't know they're part of a group message.

Simply select the candidates that you'd like to send a Mass Message to and click on the Rectxt Chrome tab on the right-hand margin of your browser. Don't forget to use the custom fields to make your message more personal!

Important Note #1: if you are sending a Mass Message from the Pipeline page you must toggle the page to 'Table' view before you can send a Mass Message (the extension will prompt you do to this) :

Important Note #2: If you are sending a mass message from the Job Dashboard then make sure you have 'Can .ID' ticked in the list under the cog Settings icon as demonstrated below:

The maximum amount of candidates that you can send in a Mass Message is 50. The more candidates you add to the Mass Message, the longer it will take for it to finish sending the text messages to everyone.
