3206895 - Recruiting Email Triggers do not work when you specify recipients 'By Email Address' - H1 2022 - Recruiting Management


The Recruiting Email Triggers do not trigger the email to the recipients if you use Specify Recipients > ‘By Email Address’. It will only trigger when you use Specify Recipients ‘By Employee name’ and ‘By role on the requisition’

  4. In Specify Recipients, select 'By Email Address' and add your email address

  9. In Offer Letter, click on Next Step button
  10. Then scroll down the page and then click on Online Offer button
  11. Select the Offer template you would like to send to the candidate
