2909967 - Is there an opt in button to receive email notifications for similar positions?


Is it possible when an applicant gets rejected from a position that they can opt in to receive email notifications of similar positions?


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management 


Currently there is no option to opt in for a candidate to receive email notifications 

There is a feature known as job alerts if enabled in the system.Candidates can set up saved searches so they can easily re-use search criteria. Then they can set up job alerts to inform them when new jobs are posted that match the criteria in their saved searches.

The Recruiting Marketing job agent functionality duplicates and supersedes the Recruiting Management job alerts functionality; clients using Recruiting Marketing may choose to disable Recruiting Management job alerts. Note that there is a trade-off here, because Recruiting Marketing does not provide job agent functionality on internally posted jobs, but disabling Recruiting Management job alerts disables them for both external and internal candidates.

Job alert emails include an unsubscribe link. Candidates must log in to confirm the unsubscribe action.

Job alerts that rely on a particular filter or mfield will fail if that field configuration is removed from the Internal and External Applicant Search Settings.
