Allow registered users to save their job searches and create alerts which send new jobs via email daily, weekly or fortnightly.
Create custom alerts
Job Alerts provides you with a new shortcode to add to your pages which gives logged in users an alerts management page to add, preview, enable, disable, edit and delete email alerts. Alerts can be configured based on keywords and job types.
Create email alerts based on searches
Using the job filters to search for jobs? If you are logged in, you can save your search as an alert using the ‘add alert’ button.
Daily, weekly & fortnightly email alerts
Email alerts can be configured to be sent with several different intervals triggered by WordPress cron. Alerts are sent in plain text format and list all matching jobs posted during the interval.
- Alert Email Content – This option controls the content of your alerts emails. Emails are plain text.
- Alert Duration – Entering a number here will cause a user’s alerts to expire are X days. When expired, the user can login to their alerts page to re-enable them for another X days.
- Alerts Page Slug – important: this is the slug of the page which you setup to house the [job_alerts] shortcode. The plugin uses this for links etc so it knows where to send the users to manage alerts.
