Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with TextRecruit allows users to select candidate statuses in Greenhouse Recruiting that should trigger a text message to be sent from within TextRecruit. When the selected stage change occurs in Greenhouse Recruiting, the data regarding the event is sent to TextRecruit.TextRecruit then uses the Greenhouse Recruiting ID for the event to prompt an automated text message to the candidate. TextRecruit’s customer success manager will work with users to create these automated text message templates. The messages are visible to the user in their TextRecruit Inbox, and in their Greenhouse Recruiting Integration Events Log. Within TextRecruit, these messages will be tagged with a Greenhouse Recruiting flag to distinguish them as part of the automated integration.  

In this article, we will cover:
