HCM e-Recruiting 201610365Include an expire date field and a unsubscribe functionality to a job agentWith note1961934 (first customer connection package) the interview booking solution was introduced. When activating the relevant T77S0 switch the functionality is available.

The downside of the functionality is, that it is mandatory for all kinds of invitation activities. As this is beneficial in mass processes it is administrative overhead doing this for single invitations in small requisitions.

The request therefore is as follows:

- Using the interview booking solution shall not be mandatory if activated
  but optional

- Alternatively the usage shall be customizable by activity type

HCM eRecruiting 201610267Correspondence:   add iCalender as email attachment

It is difficult for recruiters to filter a requisitions without any unique
fields. It would be helpful if we have requisition id and position id fields
in the recruiter's dashboard.

HCM eRecruiting 20168653Correspondence: New email subject handling

We think the character length of the search request title is too short with
80 characters. According to the field information its capacity is 160 characters  which should be taken advantage of. If we modify this we would have to take reoccurring alerts in SPAU and rework into account.
