Do you need to send SMS text messages to Candidates or Managers from the ATS? Here we will walk you through setting that up with our SimpleTexting integration.
SimpleTexting Set Up:
First, create your account with SimpleTexting.com
Purchase text messages
Request your API key from SimpleTexting.com Support
Send your SimpleTexting API key, username and password to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact BrightMove Support via LiveChat
With our SimpleTexting integration, you can text both candidates and your hiring managers. Once you are notified that SimpleTexting has been enabled in your account, you will need to label which Candidate or Manager phone types are SMS-enabled.
To do that, go to:
- Click Candidate Phone Types or Manager Phone Types, depending on which you are setting up
- Find the phone types from the list that you would like to be SMS-enabled and click the button under the SMS Type column. The most common choice will be Mobile or Cell and you can have more than one choice available
On the Candidate / Manager Profile:
When you have selected which phone types you'd like to be SMS-enabled, it's time to setup the candidate or manager profile.
First, the candidate or manager must have a valid phone number with an SMS-enabled Phone Type, as discussed in the previous section.
If you are only setting up SMS for your hiring managers, congratulations! You're done. This next step only applies for candidates.
SMS Allowed must be toggled on before you can text candidates. When applying to your jobs, candidates can choose to opt out of SMS and that cannot be reversed by a Recruiter in the ATS.
With this done, you are now ready to send SMS text messages to your managers or candidates.
