GDPR Update / Password Policy

In addition to our latest improvements to the module Password Policy, we have also optimized the security level regarding sending passwords via email. In the future, passwords will no longer be sent to candidates via email, as the candidates themselves will be able to create a password when they apply for a position.


If a candidate have forgotten their password, they will receive an email with a link that they need to open to create a new password, in order to avoid passwords being sent in an email. The link will be active during 24 hours.

 

What does it mean for you?

Basically, you do not need to do anything, since all messages are automatically updated with the new field [candidate.password.link], which automatically inserts a unique link where the candidate can create a new password if they have forgotten it.

 

How does it look for the candidate?

Once the candidate has sent the application, they receive a link from where they can create a password.

If the candidate has forgotten the password and click on "Forgot?", they will receive an email with a link they need to open to create a new password.

After creating a password the candidate will automatically be logged on his/hers profile.

 

What we recommend?

We would recommend that you change your message template(s), so your templates become up-to-date.
