Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Recruiting

2. In the candidate summary for any requisition, view the details for any candidate

3. The candidate application will have the Email (or Contact Candidate) button



By default all operators can access the Email button on the candidate application record. If you wish to restrict certain operators from accessing the Email button, the "candidate-email-permission" element can be added to the Requisition XML and only permissioned users with access to the Email button:


<candidate-email-permission type="candidateEmail">
<description><![CDATA[Recruiters can email candidate.]]></description>

This can only be declared once in the Requisition XML template and cannot be permissioned by status.
Once you add this element to the requisition template, you will be able to set up the roles who should be able to see the Email button in the candidate application.
