If you use Slack (or are thinking about it) then great news for you, we integrate with Slack!

Responding to candidates quickly is essential to getting great candidates before they are hired by one of your competitors. Our Slack integration allows you to keep on top of candidates, by having notifications sent directly to Slack.

These notifications will notify you in the same way that email notifications do (these will be in addition to your email notifications not instead of). So be sure to check your notification settings (in the top right hand corner of your Pinpoint screen --> Click on your photo/initials --> Settings --> Notifications)

How to integrate Slack
