Chat Templates

Templates are shortcuts you can create and use to turn into expanded texts. This reduces the need to type a lengthy or frequently-used sentence constantly. Furthermore, you can create new templates to suit your needs.

How to Create a new template

Creating a Template from the Chat Window

If you find yourself repeatedly typing the same message when texting candidates, you can turn the message you sent into a template. 
First, right-click on the message you want to turn into a template and click on "Save Text as Template." On the dialog box that pops up, type a name for your template and the word to use as a shortcut, make any changes to the text and save.

Creating a Template from the Templates Tab

Go to the Templates Tab and click on "Add" (located on the top left side of the screen). Then, add the name, shortcut, and text you would like to use for your template. Remember, you can add variables to personalize your message with the candidate's name, job title, or your name.
