My Account

Confirming your Account

To start using Talkpush, setting up campaigns and viewing candidates in existing campaigns, you'll need to confirm you account. Once your manager creates your account, Talkpush will send you an email to confirm the account:

confirm your account
simply click on "Confirm your account" to begin the journey.

Editing your Account information (User Profile & Signature)

Once confirmed, you'll be logged into your account for the very first time.
The first thing you shuold do is to setup you account properly.

The reason why Talkpush requires you to put your contact details is because we use them to compile your Email signature just like this:
Email Signature

To access "My Account" and edit your details, click on your email address on the top right corner of your screen:
access my account

Once you're in, you should see a form on the left and preview panel on the right. Start entering your contact details and check out your Email signature as it gets updated. Remember to click save on the bottom right of the screen.
edit details

Appending Email Signature to Emails

Once setup is done, Email signatures will AUTOMATICALLY be appended to shortlisted emails you sent to your candidates. Having an email signature at the bottom of any communication gives a personal touch to the recipient as well as the urge for them to take action after reading it. With a signature, it'll also give the users a way to contact you in case they have any questions.

Email Templates & Tokens

When a campaign is created, it comes with a set of default email and sms templates. If they fit your needs, you can leave them as it is. If you'd like to tailor your candidate's experience, you may choose to edit the templates and or disable them as appropriate.

Since the Emails that goes out from Talkpush is in a nice html format, we offer an html editor within our tool. Before we discuss about how to properly migrate/copy html code if you're looking to edit the layout of the emails, let's discuss about the content itself.

Campaign Editable (listing default below)

Here are the 4 emails that Talkpush sents to candidates on your behalf. To edit them, you can


The default invitation template as shown below invites the candidate to complete the the interview by clicking on the "interview me now" green button which brings the candidate to a "Webdialout page" where they can initiate a call to their phone.

Screenshot 2016-10-06 11.17.16.png

The green button itself is a token with a pretty UI. However, if you'd like to have your users comeplete the interview through a different routing, you may make use of the following Tokens or links

  1. Regular Web Dial-out Link:

    <%= @call_me_link: %>
  2. Web Dial-out link with Pretty UI [Default]:

    <%= @call_me_button %>
  3. Android Application Play Store Link:

  4. Regular Dialout Hotline [only if available for country]:

    <%= @full_phone_number %>
  5. PIN code:

    <%= @access_code: %>

In the completion email, we've included a link to the candidate's shared profile by default at the bottom.
If you'd like to make it much more prominent, feel free the use the token:

<%= @share_link_url %>

Screenshot 2016-10-06 11.56.20.png


We strongly recommend that you include your contact information as well as instructions on the candidate's next step.
To utilize the personalized Email Signature created by Talkpush for you, fill out your details in your account profile.

How to properly copy Email Templates

To copy Email templates from one campaign to another, it's best not to fully rely on your regular "copy and paste" commands as the formats may not carry over properly.

Here's how you should do it

  1. Navigate to the Email Template you'd like to copy from
  1. Switch over to HTML edit mode
  1. Copy all code content
  1. Paste the code into the destination campaign

For the Invitation Email, you can always just reset the template to get the most updated version like this:

Interview Creator

Back to [[Ultimate User Guide|Guides/2 Ultimate User Guide]]

The Interview Creator is an improvement to the ‘Manage Questions’ feature. Now, Talkpush users can personalize interview prompts and interview questions easily with the new interface. Doing so will allow users to:
(a) improve candidate experience,
(b) increase interview participation, and
(c) ensure good call quality.

The Interview Creator highlights two key features.

(1) Customizable Opening and Ending prompts

In the old version, the opening and ending prompts (recorded spiels heard at the beginning and ending of every Talkpush interview) are generic across the region, and can neither be changed nor personalized.

In the new Interview Creator, we’ve expanded the opening prompt into three parts: a greeting, a privacy statement, and final instructions for candidates before it goes to the actual interview. These prompts are important as it sets the tone of the interview and manages the candidate’s expectations.

For your convenience, we’ve already recorded default opening prompts and these will be automatically populated based on the campaign’s default language. As such, if you're setting up a campaign in the Philippines that has English as a default language, then all of the prompts will be pre-populated with the default English audio files. You may choose to use these generic spiels or you may personalize the prompt by uploading your own.

Similar with the opening prompt, you may use the default closing prompt or you may record your own and upload it into the Interview Creator.

(2) Question Builder

The new Interview Creator now allows you to easily search by keyword, by category or by language (as our question bank builds up) to maximize the use of the question bank that would otherwise take much longer to scroll through. Doing so will allow you to easily access over 200 profesionally recorded questions which you can freely choose from and include in your interview.

Selecting a question is as easy as dragging it from the left panel (question bank) and dropping it into the right panel. You can pick as many as you wish to populate your interview, although we would still recommend that you keep it as short as possible to make it engaging and fun.

Similar to prompts, you can upload and use your own question. Doing so will save your personalized question in the question bank and you can browse and use it again in the future. For your privacy, your personalized question will only be available in your account.

Setting it up

If you wish to compile an interview quickly without going through the trouble recording any personalized questions, you can select the default prompts (1, 2, 3, 5) and choose questions from our questions banks!

Accessing the Interview creator

  1. Create a New Campaign - Getting started from scratch
    Screenshot 2016-03-07 17.16.15.png

  2. Modifying Campaigns (before it's finalized) - Manage Questions
    Screenshot 2016-03-07 18.27.42.png

Setting up the Opening Prompts

This is the first screen you will see:

Screenshot 2016-03-07 18.30.06.png
To use the default prompts, simply confirm to use these 3 prompts by clicking "Next" to move to the questions' section!

If you wish to change them, click on "Upload your own" and you'll be greeted by this screen:
Screenshot 2016-03-07 18.43.24.png
Click on "Select File" and navigate within your computer to find the right audio file for this.

It's best practice that you type out the full script of this question to allow for easier searching in the future in the text field for "prompt".

Hit "Save" when you're ready to move to the questions' section

Setting up the Questions

Finding the right question

You can search by keyword, by category or by language (as our question bank builds up) to maximize the use of our question bank filled with questions that would otherwise take much longer to scroll through

Selecting the question of desire

So select a question for use, simply drag and drop any question you like over to the right panel until they show up there. Pick as many as you wish, to populate your interview. We recommend that you keep it as short as possible to make it engaging and fun.
Screenshot 2016-03-07 18.47.01.png

Uploading your own Question

Follow the instructions for uploading a prompt above

Setting up the Closing Prompts

Similar to the opening prompts and the questions, you may use the default or upload your own which you should be familiar by now. Here's how it looks:

Screenshot 2016-03-07 18.52.22.png

Remember to hit "Save" when you're done to populate the interview!

Here's a little flow chart for you to understand how everything fits together. Don't worry if you're not interested in knowing it all.
Talkpush General Flow Chart March2016.jpg

Email and SMS behaviours





Call behaviours

Auto Call

Auto Call can be turned on per campaign as long as the company is entitled to the feature.
With Auto call turned on, candidates will be call by the system without their instruction to increase response rate, as soon as they apply to the job. This will ensure we entertain the candidates as soon as we should - at the time they express interest to the job opening.

On a Regular Campaign

  1. Automatically calls the candidate when they apply

    • If the call doesn't get through (did not reach canddiate - telecom issue) --> Call them again when we receive the error
    • If the call gets throught (reaches the candidate) --> check in 5-10 minutes if they've completed the interview --> call them again if they haven't
    • Repease the call back check above
  2. Send a we missed you SMS if the candidate didn't pickup the last call to ensure they know how to initiate the call themselves at a later time

On a Campaign connected to the Microsite

  1. Talkpuh will only call candidates if they click on the button "interview me now" or "call me now" on the microsite after they've submitted their application.

Without Auto Call

  1. Without Auto Call, candidates will only be sent the

2.1 Goggle Form/Sheet integration Parsed by Talkpush

Google stores every response to a Google Form and they can be loaded on to a Google Sheet for easy access. If you provide Talkpush with the access to your google spreadsheet, we'll be able to parse data listed there and import them as a candidate.

How does the Facebook Bot work?

The Facebook bot is an automated agent capable of communicating with visitors on your Facebook Page.

Here's how it works:

  1. You'll have to drive traffic to your Facebook Page and get your visitors (potential candidates) to click on message to initiate a conversation
  2. Once the conversation panel opens up, they'll have to express interest by clicking on "Get Started" to activate the bot
  3. From here on, the bot takes care of everything by going through a couple questions with the candidate s to get them through the job application process, as well as the interview process. Click onto the link below to see a live conversation between a potential candidate with the bot!

Or checkout some of the screencast below:

How can I apply for access to the Facebook Bot?

If you're interested in getting started with this setup, contact your account manager or email us at if you don't already have a subscription with us! All we'll need is a Facebook Page (If you don't already have one we can help you get it setup as well) publically advertised to drive some traffic to it and your candidates will be on their way to an interview in minutes, without any human intervention!

How can I integrate Facebook Bot with my Facebook Page & Talkpush Account?

Once your Talkpush account has been activated to use Facebook Bot, you'll be able to integrate each and every campaign to allow application via the Facebook Bot simply by following the steps below:

How to setup the google sheet properly for Talkpush to parse

If you prefer to use a google sheet directly (Internal access between different recruiters)
You may do so, following the same google sheet format, as if they were created by a google form!
To do so,

  1. Make sure the 1st column of your sheet is either storing a timestamp in the same format as google, or is empty.
  2. Starting from the second column, it will follow the same order and structure listed above.
  3. Column header doesn't matter but the column order must be obeyed strictly
  4. Each row is a candidate, and you should never change the row order: New candidates should always be added following the last row on the list

**If you choose to manually edit the sheet, paste the information from an existing excel sheet. Typing it case by case may cause some system errors.

Adding a Google Form into your Facebook Page

Smart Filter (Auto Shortlist / Reject)

Talkpush is capable of filtering candidates, based on previously specified rules against their interview performance.

Interview performances are measured by a couple different key metrics within Talkpush:

The Smart Filter is capable of measuring a candidate's response against a single / multiple rules on each and every question they've responded to. With the few metrics above, and the limitless combination we allow you to implement, Talkpush enables you to streamline your screening process as much as you can with a few clicks.

To get started using the smart filter, navigate within a campaign and click on the smart filter menu item on the top right.

Once you're in, you'll see 2 sections:

To understand how to use this function, you'll need to know what each of these rows represents. Each row underneath a question section represents a rule. Each rule can be broken down into a few parts:

If you're like to shortlist candidates that have said "Yes" to a question that askes them if they have a valid passport/visa for this region, your rule would look like:

If you have more than 1 rule where you wanted a candidate that has a valid visa as well as knows how to speak English. You may ask in question 2 for them to list the languages they speak.
and your second rule would look like:

In order to combine the 2 rules, you can then use the Boolean expression above both rules, using

Here are some different ways you can use the boolean expressions:

By Creating groups of rules and using the boolean expressions, you're saying: If the candidates satisfies

You can see here the combination is unlimited as long as you have perfect condition in mind for your perfect candidates, Talkpush will be able to handle all of that filtering for you, so you can process those that we've picked for you increaing your productivity and efficiency!

Informing the Candidates

Once a decision is made, it's of best practices to inform the Candidate

Shortlist/Reject - just let them know

Unified Inbox

The Unified Inbox is the new interface where you can see all past interactions between yourself, your team, the system and your candidates. Like many of your social media messaging apps, each candidate of yours will have a unified inbox so you can engage in real-time conversations with them, or see real time updates of there progress.

Accessing the Unified Inbox

Screenshot 2016-11-07 18.28.15 copy.png
To access the unified inbox (as of Nov 7), you may click on the envelop next to any candidate's conatact details (as shown above)

Understanding the Unified Inbox

Before we begin, we need to understand that there are 3 types of information that will appear here within the Unified Inbox:

Event Highlights or Status Updates

Event highlights are universal status updates or actions that happened. Since these actions are the same across campaigns, they're shown collapsed to avoid crowding your chat. If more details are available, you'll be able to click and expand to see details.

Messages sent by recruiters in your team

These are messages that are sent from within the Talkpush tool. It can be from yourself or any of your team members who has access to this campaign. These messages can be sent via different platforms/channels:

Messages sent by candidate

These are messages sent by your candidates and then can come from various different platforms/channels. Where ever they're from, Talkpush consolidates them for you so you don't have to cross reference different channels just to keep track of 1 candidate.

Sending a Message via the Unified Inbox

To select the message channel, click on the green icon:

Unified Inbox - 2 way communication

Talkpush's Communication Channel Roadmap

Recruitment softwares have always enabled recruiters to keep their candidates updated by sending them an email regarding their application status or whether they've passed a certain stage of their process. While notifications are very efficient at keeping candidates updated, it creats too many email threads and recruites can't necessarily keep track of these emails/replies systematically for each candidate.

On top of creating a mess in logging communication history, it reduces the chance of the recruiter being able to reply to an email with all necessary information about the candidate leaving a lot of those emails/questions unanswered.

This is the reason why Talkpush is introducing its 2-way communication channels for recruiters to send real time updates to candidates, allow their reply to come through and for recruiters to respond to those questions real time

Talkpush's Channels in 2016

Talkpush's Channels in 2017

In the 1st quarter of 2017, Talkpush will expand it's channels into:

2-way SMS explained

Talkpush has always been capable of sending out SMS to all of your candidates as long as we have their phone number and it's connected to the network. However, these kind of SMS is sent to the candidates with a sender ID (usually a company name), which your candidates will receive as a "notification" and will not be able to reply to.

The newly introduced 2-way SMS can however, send any custom content to your candidates, with a dedicated phone number, which your candidates can send a reply to on any (smart) phone.

This new function will allow you to message your candidates through the Talkpush without having to use your personal device/number.
*2-way SMSes is only available if your company has it setup (has a dedicated phone number from Talkpush).

2-way Facebook Messages explained

Similar to 2-way SMSes, 2-way Facebook Messages allows you to send Facebook messages to your candidates via your company's Facebook Page as a Page admin. Note that this 2-way Facebook Message function will only work if your candidate came through the Facebook Messenger bot's application channel. This is due to privacy restrictions from Facebook. You're only allowed to message a candidate, if they've explicitly agreed to being contacted by applying.

This 2-way conversation branches off from the Facebook Messenger Bot application sequence which means once you initiate a 2-way Facebook Message, you will deactivate the company's Facebook Chatbot for this particular candidate so make sure your candidate has finished the interview before you initiate a chat or know how to reinitiate the interview.
