Improve your email marketing strategy by building the right contact list! Recruit CRM helps you do this by giving you the option to include an unsubscribe link within your email, that allows the candidates/contacts to opt-out of further emails from you. You can also manually remove candidates/contacts from your email list.

1 How to include the unsubscribe link in the emails sent to candidates and contacts:

You can include the unsubscribe link on bulk/mass and individual emails sent through Recruit CRM. All you need to do is tick the "Include opt-out/unsubscribe link" box on the top right after composing the email!

This will include the link to unsubscribe on the email sent. The candidate/contact can simply click and unsubscribe from your emails:

Once a particular candidate/contact "Opts-out/unsubscribes" from your email their profiles in Recruit CRM will have the following label:

All candidates/contacts marked opted out or unsubscribed will automatically be skipped while sending mass/bulk emails, you don't need to worry about this while selecting records and sending bulk emails.

You can also customize the text on the button included or translate it from: Admin Settings> Email Opt Out Settings:
