Reproducing the Issue

  • Login to the instance and Go to Onboarding Dashboard
  •  Search for candidate
  • Click on Nudge button for any of the New hire activities
  • Go to Email services and check there is No Nudge email sent


  • The Business rule configured uses Future dated EC entities for rule evaluation.
  • This is a current limitation where we cannot fetch future dated EC entity records through business rules since the rule is always executed with Today as the effective start date.
  • currently we only support today as effectiveStartDate during rule evaluation and hence the jobInfo entity for future dated onboardees are skipped and the Email is not sent.
  • For the past dated Onbordees the email will be sent.
