Communication Hub

Communication Hub is used to create custom email templates based on the lifecycle events that are performed such as Preboarding, Onboarding, Profile Update, Scheduled Termination, Termination, Leave.

Mail Templates allow you to use data from your Identity Management System (Active Directory or Azure Active Directory or Google Directory) as well as from different HR attributes to create email subject or body.

An email template can be used in multiple flows. You can also use multiple email templates for a lifecycle event.
