Rectxt is easy & affordable click-to-text software for recruiters that integrates seamlessly with Greenhouse. The Rectxt Chrome extension allows recruiters to send 1:1 texts and launch 1:many bulk-action Mass Messages directly from inside or outside of Greenhouse by simply clicking on a candidate’s phone number.

Connecting Rectxt with your Greenhouse Account is easy. All you’ll need is your email address and your Greenhouse API key which can be provided by your Greenhouse rep, or can be generated by the SuperUser of your company Greenhouse account. 


*Note: Only 1 Greenhouse API key is needed and can be used for multiple recruiters at the same company (ie - each recruiter does NOT need to generate their own unique Greenhouse API key for their Rectxt account).

Greenhouse Recruiting’s integration with Rectxt allows all inbound and outbound text conversations to instantly save under each Greenhouse Recruiting candidate profile. In this article, we will cover how to:
