Hello Everyone,

In this blog, we'll explore what email triggers are, how they can be customized to suit your organization's unique needs, and the significant benefits they offer to end users.

Currently in standard emails for Onboarding, there is only one email template to trigger the "Furnish Equipment" task. This blog will contain a circumvention to trigger emails to the different recipients through the "Email Services".

Generally all the equipment related task doesn't simplify if the scenarios are involved whether it's based on "Location of Candidate" or "Task Responsible Person".

Customizing Email Triggers


Customization is where the true power of email triggers shines. Partners can tailor email notifications to meet organization's specific requirements and branding. Some key aspects of customization include:

1. Content: Customize the message content, including text, images, and links, to convey information effectively and maintain brand consistency.

2. Timing: Set the timing of email triggers to match your organization's needs, whether it's immediate, daily, weekly, or on a schedule that suits your workflow.

3. Recipients: Specify who receives each email trigger based on user roles, departments, or any criteria you define in dynamic group. This ensures that the right people are informed.

4. Design: Tailor the email template to reflect your brand's visual identity, ensuring a professional and cohesive look for all communications.

5. Personalization: Add personal touches, such as the recipient's dynamic group name, and customize the template name to make email triggers more engaging and relevant.

Below are the steps by which you will be able to set off the emails to trigger it to different recipients based on the condition value.
