Business Description


The email templates module in our system offers a simple and easy approach to faster creation and sending emails to contacts, contractors and employees of our organization. It provides users with ready-made templates that can be tailored to specific communication needs, saving time and ensuring consistency in messaging. Thanks to this module, users can create reusable templates for various types of e-mail messages, such as welcome messages for contacts, templates with offers for contractors and e-mails sent to employees of our organization.


The Email Templates module is comprised of multiple fields, each meticulously crafted with a distinct purpose in mind, serving to capture and organize essential email templates-related information. Here is a detailed explanation of each field:

Name The concise title or description of the email template.
Type Type of the email template.
Assigned to The user designated to manage or handle the assigned email template.
Insert Variable Field in which we add a variable value used in the email template.
Subject The subject of the email template.
Width Default Field where the user can change the default width in the email template.
Body Field in which the user defines the appearance of email template.
Attachments A field where the user can add an attachment that will be sent together with the email template.
Description Detailed descriptive content of the email template.
Date Created The date and time when the email template was initially created.
Date Modified The date and time when the email template was last edited or modified.

Note: Fields marked with an asterisk are required. Saving the record without providing input to them beforehand won't be possible.


The 'Email Templates' module is intricately connected with several modules, amplifying its utility across various aspects of organizational management. These related modules include:

Combining the Email Templates module with the Users module significantly streamlines work in the organization. Users can share templates with other users, supporting teamwork and consistency between departments or teams. For example, a recruiter who has created a particularly effective interview invitation template can easily share it with other recruiters to maintain consistency in messaging. It is possible to block the ability to edit the Template by a user other than the one assigned to the Template. You can also use a type or group to restrict the view of Email Template records to different groups of users. For example, recruiters may have access to templates related to candidate communication, and HR managers may have access to templates related to employee onboarding.

Role in the Hiring Process

The Email Templates module plays a important role in the hiring process by providing recruiters with pre-designed email templates tailored for various stages, such as initial outreach, interview scheduling, and post-interview follow-ups. These templates streamline communication, ensuring consistency in messaging and saving time.
