Schedule Bulk Email and Email Log


Bulk Email

A super user or sub user can send referral jobs using create referral mail. The user can send these jobs to 1000 employees in one go.

To enable the HR to send these mails to much larger group of employees in one go we have introduced the ability to schedule a bulk email.
With bulk email the HR can send the Referral Jobs to a maximum of 1.5 lacs employees in one click. The bulk email will be scheduled for sending on next calendar day morning.

Email Log

Email Log will enable the HR to see the scheduled Bulk emails, provide them an option to cancel the scheduled bulk email and see the already sent emails.
The log will provide other useful information like which user sent the email, how many employees were sent the email, date of sending the email, how many emails were opened and current status.
The HR can filter the log entries based on status and date.
