Reproducing the Issue

  1. Disqualify Candidate via Pipeline
  2. Select disqualification status

  3. Refresh Delay Emails to Disqualified Candidates (in hours)
  4. Candidate Status Delay Message should be successful. (Backend check)
  5. Check if email was sent out by Mail Server


Here are some steps to fix if disqualification email are not being sent out:

  1. Check if there are any email template that is on the Candidates (External / Internal candidate) → Edit Applicant Status Configuration
  2. Check Recruiting Settings if Delayed email checkbox is checked. Manage Recruiting Settings →  Check Delay Emails to Disqualified Candidates (in hours)
  3. Refresh Delay Emails to Disqualified Candidates (in hours)
  4. Currently, a delay can be configured only for the 'Disqualified Candidates' and this delay will not work if the candidates are moved automatically to 'Requisition status' when the requisition is closed.
  5. If the above 4 Solutions above does not work, kindly create a CS ticket and ask if Monitor Job: Candidate Status Mail Delay was successful
  6. If yes, provide the Email address of the candidate and the timestamp on when it was sent so that CS can check the Mail Server.
