Implement a working job subscription

Updated over a week ago

The Job Alert (CxJobAlert) is an email template that automatically sends relevant Job orders published in a certain period to subscribed Candidates.

You can use the image at the bottom to see which information we'll need when implementing the Job Alert.

Install Job alert

The Administrator is able to Install and configure the Job alert table.

Install Job alert template

Install the default Job alert email template from the template library.

  • Go to 'Maintenance' | 'Templates'

  • Click the button [Library]

  • Search for the template
    Name: Job alert email
    Code: JobAlert

  • Click [Install]

Configure a 'Jobalert' Table

  • Go to 'Maintenance' | 'Tables'

  • Click [New]

  • Fill in the following fields as indicated below:
    Table: Group candidate
    Select active
    Name: Jobalert
    subscriptionclass: JobAlertTag
    subscriptionscheduleclass: Choose the desired sending period (daily (DailyTag), weekly (WeeklyTag) or monthly (MonthlyTag)) (more explaination below);

  • Click [Finish]

When is the JobAlert being sent?

The chosen Tag at "subscriptionclass" determines the days a Job alert is being sent:

BiDailyTag; Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday...
TriDailyTag; Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday, Tuesday, Friday, Monday, Thursday, Sunday...
TwiceWeeklyTag; Sunday, Wednesday, Sunday
WeeklyTag; Sunday, Sunday
MonthlyTag; Every first day of the month


The newly created Table creates the group Jobalert in a Candidate-file. Candidates with this Group selected will automatically receive a weekly mailing with Job orders that are similar to the desired Functiongroup ('Files' | 'Candidates' | 'Desired-tab').
If a Functiongroup is not defined under the Desired-tab, the necessary collection of Job orders cannot be found and the mailing will not be sent.
The mailing will only be sent if there are new fitting Job orders available.
