New Account Messaging

Important

Information and features vary according to the roles to which you belong and the permissions associated with those roles. For more information, contact your module manager or your campus support team.

You can configure this portlet to send JICS login and password information to users in JICS security groups. You can select the security group to receive the notification, create or update the template, and determine if the email notification is sent automatically or manually.

Notice

The New Account Messaging feature is used in conjunction with the Employee Position Management feature to send a new applicant a user account. New applicants can log in and view the positions for which they have applied and the application status. They can also apply for additional positions. You can develop the notification template, choose a delivery method, and determine which security groups will receive the notification.

Note

The Account Notification feature is shared by more than one CRM. All individuals assigned to JICS roles with access to the portlet can view the portlet and settings.
