Feature Activation Preferences

The Feature Activation Preferences page provides top-level system administrators and recruiting administrators the option to self-activate Recruiting functionality.

Activate Candidate Email Verification

When activated, the Candidate Email Verification feature requires candidates to verify their email address before gaining access to sensitive application materials via My Profile on the career site. Verification is performed when the candidate clicks a verification link in a system-generated email that is automatically sent when they create their account. The link opens the career site, where a message appears indicating whether the verification was successful. From here, candidates can quickly access the job search page and their My Profile page.

Note: The email that is sent to the candidate is not customizable. This is a system-generated email. In order for the email to fire, a default "from" email address must be present in a backend setting. The backend setting can be configured by contacting Global Product Support.

If a candidate attempts to verify their email using an invalid verification link, or if they attempt to verify after the link has expired, they will see a message informing them that their verification was unsuccessful. They will be able to request a new verification link by clicking a link in the message.

To activate this functionality:

  1. Go to Admin > Tools > Recruit > Feature Activation Preferences.
  2. Click Activate in the Candidate Email Verification section. The functionality is now enabled.

You can deactivate this feature by clicking Deactivate. The deactivation option only displays after activating the feature.
