Enable Automatic Application Creation through Application Invitation
Administration > Manage Site Settings > General Settings
This option allows an organization to invite applicants to apply to a private application form. Admins can choose to have the application form already started for the applicant making it available in their My Applications tab or they can have the applicant click on a link in an email and be directed to a login where they can then access the form to start the application themselves.
General Settings option:
Yes – This allows you to invite an applicant and start the application form for the applicant. The applicant would then log in and the application form would be available in their My Applications tab where the applicant must click on the application form to complete it. (If there were pre-qualification questions, the applicant will not have to answer those questions, and will be bypassed to the application form.)
No – This allows you to invite an applicant to apply to a specific application form, however, the application will not be automatically started and added to the applicant's My Applications tab. The applicant will need to click on the link in an email and then must log in through that link. Once they login, the application form will display and they can click the Apply button to begin the application process.
Once the applicant clicks Apply and is directed to that application’s dashboard, the application will then be present in their My Applications tab. (If there are pre-qualification questions, the applicant must meet the pre-qualification criteria before accessing the application’s dashboard.)
Important Note: When using either of these selections you will need to review the Email Template>Application: Application Invitation in the Notification Center to make sure the correct message is relayed based on your selection of Yes or No for this option. The default message applies to No.
