How to configure the email notification:

  1. Admin Center > Manage Recruiting Email Templates
  2. Create a new template that MUST contain the tokens [[BEGIN_REPEAT]] and [[END_REPEAT]]
  • Example below: 


One or more postings for the following Job Requisitions were successful:


[[JOB_REQ_ID]]: [[JOB_REQ_TITLE]] handled by [[RECRUITER_FULL_NAME]] belonging to [[HIRING_MGR_FULL_NAME]]



Posting type includes: [[POSTING_TYPES]]



  1. Admin Center > Recruiting Email Triggers
  2. Enable the email Trigger “Requisition Posted”
  3. Select Recipients as needed.
  • Example below:



  • The email template must be configured as per instructions in order to work as expected.

  • The email will not be triggered each time. There is a quartz job which runs to collect all jobs which were posted within certain time and send a consolidated email per user/recipient with only content relevant to that user/recipient.

  • "Enabling" the trigger and saving it will create a scheduled quartz job (jobReqNewPostings) with the job type "Requisition Posted” which can be monitored from Provisioning. "Disabling" the trigger and saving it will cancel the job and delete it.

  • This is an asynchronous email trigger which runs only twice every day at 8am and 8pm server time (this setting cannot be modified).
