Reproducing the Issue

  1. From the external/internal career site click on E-Mail Job To Friend.
  2. Check that the body already contains a message.



Before edit the body message, you need to know which Email Template is associated to the feature trigger:

  1. In Admin Center, open Recruiting Email Triggers.
  2. Find the trigger "Email Job to Friend" and open. 


  1. In the Email Template section, check the template name.


  1. Go back to Admin Center and open Manage Recruiting Email Templates.
  2. Find the Email Template that was configured in the Trigger.
  3. Perform the changes in the body as desired.


If you do not select any template and keep the "E-mail Job to Friend" trigger still enabled, the friend you try to email the job will still be receiving an email but with the default template. This is hard-coded by the system and the contents of the email cannot be configured.
