TAM - Forward Applicant(s)


You can forward applicants to one or more persons to enable them to review the applicant. This is often used to gain approvals for interviewing applicants. When forwarding an applicant, the recipients whom you select receive a notification that includes any text you enter and a link to the applicant's record.
Forwarding an applicant is similar to routing an applicant. However, when you forward an applicant, TAM does not change the disposition status for the applicant. TAM does, however, add an entry to the Contact History group box in the applicant Notes section of the Manage Applicant page.


  • The applicant's resume is included in the forwarding email as an attachment.
  • When receiving a forwarded applicant, the recipient can respond via email to all other recipients.
