Email Placeholders

Save time when emailing your candidates and prepare email templates for some of the most common topics and conversations.

Updated over a week ago

To get the most out of your TalentLyft experience and to save you more time, we added the option to use email templates when communicating with your candidates. When editing your templates, you can also use Email placeholders.

NOTE: Placeholders are available in all forms of email communication in TalentLyft, not just when editing templates.

Placeholders are replaced with a dynamic value (e.g. the candidate’s first name, your name, or the position title) when the email is sent, to add a more personal touch to your mass communication.
When you open the email editor, click on the Merge field icon to open the list of available placeholders.

Here you can find the list of all available placeholders and their meaning:

Candidate placeholders

  • Full name – candidate’s first and last name. It will appear as {Candidate} in the email text editor.

  • First name – candidate’s first name

  • Last name – candidate’s last name

  • Current job title – current job title, if the candidate is employed

  • Current company – current company name, if the candidate is currently employed

Sender placeholders (all values can be edited in your Profile settings)

  • Headline – your position at the company
