Slack App

Included in:
  • SmartStart
  • SmartRecruit


SmartRecruiters' Slack App makes it easy to share summaries of candidates in Slack so that the hiring team can easily access candidate summaries and profiles.

Slack App in SmartRecruiters will begin to sunset starting from March 9th, 2021 and will be deprecated on March 25th, 2021

Connect Slack Team account

The first step to setting up the App is to connect SmartRecruiters with your team's Slack Team account. Admins can connect their team's Slack Team account from the Slack Integration page of Settings / Admin.SlackIntegrationAdmin.png

 You can connect a Slack Team account to only one SmartRecruiters company account at a time. 

Connect Slack user account

Once the App is activated by the Admin, each individual user (including Admins) must connect their Slack user account in order to share candidates in Slack.UserSlackConnected.png

 You can connect a Slack User account to only one SmartRecruiters user account at a time. 

Launch Slack channel

Anyone who has connected their Slack user account and is on the hiring team for a job will be able to launch a public Slack channel for the job from the Activity tab of the job's profile:LaunchSlackChannel.png

Doing so will automatically invite anyone on the hiring team who has connected their Slack user account into the channel. Users who haven't yet connected their account won't be automatically added.

The channel's name will reflect the REF number for the job, which is listed at the top of the Job's profile or on the Job Details page. NewSlackChannel.png

Sharing candidates

To share a candidate, just go to the candidate's profile, and copy the URL from your browser and paste it into any channel or DM in Slack.

Users who have connected their Slack account can share candidates in any channel or DM, even if they don't launch a dedicated channel in Slack.

The integration is one-way: conversations in Slack are never added to the candidate profile.
