Email and SMS is a great way to stay engaged with your candidate talent pools, whether you are keeping them warm for a future role or progressing through an active recruitment journey.
As part of your Recruitment Workflow, Eploy can automatically send emails and text messages to your applicants on a schedule of your choice - this can include interview confirmations to be sent immediately or rejection emails to be sent days later etc.
You also have the ability to send ad-hoc emails and text messages to Candidates, either using Templates or typing your message manually.
In this article, we will be discussing sending an email/sms on an ad-hoc basis.
There are several ways to initiate contact with a Candidate:
- From the global list of Candidates, select the candidates you wish to contact and click Email/SMS within the grey menu bar
- Within the Candidate record itself and whilst on the Summary or Personal tab, click Email/SMS within the grey menu bar
- From anywhere within the Candidate Record, click the email icon to send an email or the SMS icon (it looks like a message bubble) to send an SMS. Both of these icons are next to the Candidate's name, just beneath the list of tabs.
Whichever option you choose, the Email/SMS window will now open and you can compose your email, or use a template, as normal. For more information on using the email/sms window, please see this article.
