Keywords FAQs:

Do all these keywords work for all companies? How can my company set up one of these keywords?

It's possible that your company hasn't activated every keyword in TeamSense. Feel free to try a keyword to see - we'll text you back and let you know if your company hasn't yet activated it!

If you are an administrator and would like to set up new functionality in TeamSense (and therefore activate one of these keywords), reach out to us and we're happy to help!

Do I have to be signed up for TeamSense to use these keywords?

To use the keywords listed above, you will need to have an active record in TeamSense.

However, there are other keywords that anyone can use! Companies have the option to set up words or phrases that will return a custom message - for example, a company might set up a keyword of "Apply to Dino Cement Co" that could return a link to the company's job page and application. These types of keywords can be used by anyone regardless of whether they have a record in TeamSense.
