There are, basically, three different ways to have emails sent to candidates:

  1. Status Triggered Emails - sent whenever a candidate hits a different status in the applicant pipeline.
  2. Recruiting Email Triggers - sent to candidates or internal users (depending on the trigger), based on a specific action performed in the system.
  3. Manually Sent Emails - To be covered in this article, are the emails sent to applicants upon recruiter's will. Are also called Adhoc Emails.

  2. In the right side, close to the "Take Action" button, click the "Email" button. Please notice the wording may vary, based on previous configuration;

  4. Click "Next";
  5. Check the email on its preview version and click "I'm Done" in case there are no missing adjustments.
