Email on Manage Candidates (Early Adopter) – Tags Support

This functionality is not available at the start of UAT.

Prior to this release recruiters were only able to send email to candidates from the Manage Candidates page by copying and pasting required details into the email.

With this release, recruiters can use the new View Tags link in the Message section of the email fly-out to select tags that contain the text used to populate an email message. When the email is sent, the tags are resolved and replaced with the relevant text.

Recruiters can:

  • Copy tags and paste them to use in the email message.
  • Preview the email before sending.

To access this feature, go to Recruit > Manage Candidates > Options > Send Email > View Tags.

Requisition: Owner

This permission also grants read-only access to video interviews that are completed by applicants via HireVue. For portals with Referral Suite enabled, this permission also enables requisition owners to edit the referral source on the Applicant Profile page. This permission cannot be constrained.

Note: This is a dynamically assigned permission that is not available in Security Role Administration. If the user is removed as an owner, the permission is revoked for the associated requisition. This permission cannot be manually assigned. Also, if a user has both the permission necessary to manage requisitions and be a requisition owner, the constraints of the Requisition: Manage permission overrule those of the Requisition: Owner permission. For requisition owners that do not also have permission to manage requisitions, only certain fields are editable when editing a requisition.
