Each of the options on this page is explained below.

1. Do you want to enable one-click emails without seeing a preview of each email?

While contacting a candidate If you wish to preview each email before sending it then you can enable one-click emails. The system would automatically send the personalized template made by you to candidates. This way you don’t have to spend time editing and creating a personalized email for each candidate. But, If you wish to preview each email then you can disable one-click emails.

2. Do you want to auto-reject candidates who don't respond to your emails within 14 days?

If you select "Yes" for this action then all the candidates who do not respond within 14 days will be moved from the "Reached Out" stage to the "Rejected" stage. This will help you declutter your pipeline and you can focus on engaging with candidates who are interested in the position.

3. For any new jobs that you post, do you want automated reminder emails for candidates to be enabled by default?

If you enable this setting then InstaBot, our proprietary AI-powered bot, creates and sends personalized reminder emails to the candidates who have not replied to your first email. InstaBot will send reminder emails when the candidate is the most active and this increases your chances of getting a reply by 93%. We have seen 3X responses from these reminder emails compared to only sending an initial email, so we highly recommend you keep them enabled.

4. Send emails after a 30-second delay to allow undo send?

If you enable this setting the emails you send to candidates will be sent after 30 seconds so that you can undo send in case a mail has been sent accidentally and you want to retrieve it and avoid spamming the candidates.
