Automatic Email Alert of Candidate Status Change
The latest release of the influence software adds the ability to automate the sending of an email to one or more internal contacts when the status of a candidate is changed to one or more specific values.
In the example below, if the status of the candidate is changed to "SOLD", then an email will be sent to selected individuals alerting them to the fact. The format of the email message itself is hard-coded within the program.
The system will then generate an email containing details of this change, in a format as below.
How it Works
The setup is controlled with the a set of parameters detailing which status changes trigger the sending of an email and the recipients for the email.
Choose Maintenance > Setup > Parameters then choose File > Open
Up to 10 status can be set to trigger emails. (The statuses are those held in code table "Candidate Status"  )
Use the 'Odd' numbered parameters (1, 3, 5, etc) to specify the Status and the recipients.
