Before you start: The Rectxt chrome extension is required for you to be able to send messages. If you don't have it already then you can get it here.

Sending 1:1 text messages

Recruiters can text new candidates from any screen where a candidate's phone number is displayed. There are 2 ways to text candidates:

1) Click the Rectxt icon above the candidate's name OR

2) Click the Rectxt widget on the right-hand side of the page

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 where you see a list of candidates. These messages convert to 1:1 messages when the candidate responds so they won't know they're part of a group message.

To send a mass message click the check box next to each candidate that you would like to text and then click the blue Rectxt icon see in the action tray:

You can choose to send either manual or templated messages:

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.
