Sending Whatsapp and Email Reminders to Assessment Candidates

Created by Shubham Kumar, Modified on Thu, 28 Mar 2024 at 03:13 PM by Shubham Kumar

Problem Statement: Based on our analysis, on an average only 60% of the intended audience actually goes on to attempt the assessments. The reason for non-attempt can be as follows:

  • The invited candidate may not be interested/available for the assessment.
  • The invited candidate missed the initial communication.
  • The invited candidate forgot about the invite due to time lag between the invite time and the assessment start time.



Solution Implemented: The reminder system module we are introducing would allow you to send upto 2 Email communications and 2 Whatsapp communications free of cost to the last two types of candidates. By reaching out on both these mediums would positively impact the attempt ratio leading to an increase in the validated pool of candidates.
