Circumstancing rules on multiple variables
As a part of the onboarding process, TGB sends an email that provides the employment start date to each new employee and contractor. This email also reminds the employee or contractor to bring specific paperwork on their first day at TGB. Business partners in the Human Resources (HR) department want to customize the emails by country and employee status to direct the employee to bring the appropriate paperwork on their first day.
Circumstance the Welcome email on two properties: .pyCountryCode and .Contractor. You need to create three circumstanced versions of the Welcome email as outlined in the following table.
Note: You can also customize the circumstancing conditions for your own countries, using the relevant tax documents.
- Create a circumstance template using the country code and contractor properties
- Create a circumstance definition for each of the scenarios
- Circumstance the Welcome email for each set of conditions and reference the appropriate tax document in each circumstanced version
