2) What are the steps involved in creating the Communication Trigger?

  • Step 1: Email ID Mapping - Add and verify the email ID from which the email will go to the recipients.
  • Step 2: Creating Email Templates - Creating templates for different events and choosing the recipients.

  1. Only activated Quikchex user accounts will receive email triggers.
  2. Supervisors and admins will receive the email triggers even if they have not activated their Quikchex accounts.
  3. You are advised not to use Cc/Bcc for email communication triggers sent to multiple employees to avoid emails flooding the inbox. For e.g. if you select 10 email IDs for a communication email trigger and you mark in Cc/Bcc, will receive 10 emails in their inbox. However, it is convenient for emails sent individually like for sending joining letters, confirmation letters, etc you can mark the reporting managers in Cc/Bcc.
