Candidate Messaging & SMS (Pilot) - Overview

The Candidate Messaging feature allows recruiters to converse with candidates directly inside Cornerstone Recruiting through an instant messaging-style interface. Candidates will be notified of unread messages via email and SMS (where available and possible) and can respond directly to recruiters using a link in the notification.

Candidate Messaging is available from both the Manage Candidates and Applicant Profile pages.
