Trigger a Manager Transfer for an Employee, where the Automatic Document Transfer settings are enabled in the form templates.


  • The Employee Transfer Notification will be sent when the documents related to the employee are transferred to the new manager.
  • This email is not a batched notification - it will be sent at the time the Manager transfer occurs.
  • The Employee Transfer Notification will be sent only when 'Automatic insertion of new manager as next document recipient if not already ' is enabled.

Recipients of this notification:

  • Form Subject (Employee)
  • New Manager
  • Old Manager

Supported tokens:

  • [[XFER_TO_NAME]] - New Manager
  • [[XFER_FROM_NAME]] - Old Manager
  • [[EMP_NAME]] - Form Subject (Employee)
  • [[DOC_LIST]] - List of forms transferred
  • [[SIGNATURE]] - Email Signature
