New applicants notification


Configuring the new applicants notification list allows your organization to automate internal communication to select team members when a job receives a new external applicant. Once configured, any user added to the new applicants notification list will receive an email notification per new external applicant.

Note: This notification is for new external applicants on a job only. To receive notifications for internal applicants, add users to the new internal applicants notification list. 

In this article, we will cover the following for a single job:


To start, click All Jobs from the navigation bar and select a job from the subsequent list.


Click Job Setup and navigate to Notifications on the left-hand panel.


From the Notifications page, navigate to the Candidate Notifications panel and click Configure inline with New Applicants.


Note: The text of the email notification for new applicants cannot be edited.
