The recruiter has the option to make changes to the default text also. We have provided some basic text formatting options and the ability to add an image to the interview invite, see the area outlined in blue for these controls. Its important to note that these changes will not override the text in the global settings, it will only change the text for this interview. Be sure to click save to apply the changes made to the text.

Review:

The final page will display the email summary screen. This allows recruiters detailed access to information about the emails sent from their account. The recruiter will see 5 columns Name, Email Type, Status, View and Re-Send. There is also a Plus button Plus Button email summary on the left that will allow more details regarding when the email was created and sent. Lets take a look at what each piece of information tells us.

  • Name: The name of the candidate as entered by the recruiter
  • Email Type: This indicates the type of email you are investigating, some examples are Invitation Email, Confirmation Email, Personal Message, Reminder Email. In this case it will show as an Invitation Email
  • Status: This is where the recruiter will be able to see if the email was actually sent. When the email is pending its in the queue waiting to be sent. The status will change to Email Sent once the email has gone through. If the email was not successfully sent you will see a status reflecting the error encountered.
  • View: This will allow the recruiter to view an exact copy of the email sent to the candidate(s). The email will be displayed in a new web browser tab
  • Re-send: In the event where a candidate did not receive an invite the recruiter simply needs to click the paper airpane icon to send another email to the user. We have made this step quick and easy to help save time and reduce the amount of duplicate work done by the recruiter by not having to retype the candidates information again.
