We’ve added some new functionality to the new messaging system, “Message Templates” have been added, these templates save you the trouble of rewriting commonly sent messages – for example, a “Thanks for your Application” message, to acknowledge receiving an application from a jobseeker. Message Templates are a more advanced version of our old “Screening Letter” functionality, which has been retired.
Before you can send your message templates, you must create them, we’ve added a sample template, which you can use, edit or delete. You are allowed to save up to five templates.
- To send a message template select it from the “Select Message Template” menu, when you select it the message subject and content is added to your message, all you need to add is the recipient name
- To edit/update a message, select the message from the “Select Message Template” menu, click the pencil icon, and you are taken to the Edit page. Edit your message template and click “Save/Update” when you’re done
- To delete a message, select the message from the “Select Message Template” menu, click the pencil icon, and you are taken to the Edit page. Click “Delete” and the message will be deleted
- To create a new message, you have two options – you can save a message you’re currently composing by ticking the “Save Message as Template after Sending” check-box, this will save the subject and the message as a template after you’ve sent the message. The second option is click the pencil icon, and you are taken to the Edit page. Click “New”, edit the new blank message template, click “Save” when you’re done, and the new message has been saved as a template.
