To comply with the best email marketing practices, you can now add unsubscribe links to your emails. When one of your contacts or candidates click on the unsubscribe link, they’ll be automatically opted out of receiving any bulk emails sent from Vincere.
Here’s what you can do:
You can set up the default setting for all contacts/candidates you add in the system. To do this, you can go to Settings > Admin Settings > GDPR l Data Privacy > Email permission settings > Edit
Here, you can set up if you would like to have your contacts and candidates be subscribed or unsubscribed as soon as you add them to Vincere.
Note: The new settings, once applied, will not be retroactively applied to existing records. This change will only affect new records that will be added in the system after the setting is updated.
