  • Engage - The Lever candidate profile flows to Sense, allowing users to create automated messaging touchpoints to be sent to candidates based on status changes, last modification, and more.
  • Chatbot - The Lever candidate profile flows to Sense, allowing users to create chatbot conversations using candidate profile details.
  • Chrome Extension - Users can also utilize the Sense chrome extension to quickly message candidates in Lever.

Sense Support Process

Every Sense customer has a team of experienced professionals to assist with questions, issues, and support tickets throughout the implementation lifecycle. Once your customer implementation is complete, a Sense Customer Support Manager (CSM) becomes the go-to resource to assist with any ongoing questions or issues, walk customers through feature enhancements, and more. 

Should a support ticket need to be submitted, customers can take any of the following paths:

  • Speak with a Sense CSM
  • Submit a ticket via Sense's Knowledge Portal
  • Submit a ticket via email to support@sensehq.com

Once a ticket is submitted it will be triaged by the Sense Support Team and routed to the most appropriate department. Sense's support teams have 24/7 coverage to ensure the timely resolution of tickets and provide an escalation point should there be an escalation or outage at Sense.
