Rectxt is easy and 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. 

Greenhouse Recruiting’s integration with Rectxt allows all inbound and outbound text conversations to instantly save under each Greenhouse Recruiting candidate profile.

Opt-in consent for Application-to-Person (A2P) messaging

Application-to-Person (A2P) messaging allows organizations to send messages to standard 10-digit long code (10DLC) phone numbers.

New texting regulations for A2P 10DLC require candidates expressly opt-in when applying for jobs in order to receive A2P communications. If a candidate opts-out, these messages will be blocked.

To obtain this opt-in consent in Greenhouse Recruiting, create a custom application question using Yes/No as the configured answer type and then, apply this question to your job posts in bulk. Once created, you can then report on candidate application responses to locate the consent status. 

To learn more on working with A2P 10DLC regulations in Greenhouse Recruiting, reach your Customer Success manager or open a ticket with Greenhouse Technical Support.
