Jobs near me: how to disable (and re-enable) the geolocation feature in Clinch Talent

'Jobs Near Me' is the candidate geolocation feature that allows candidates fast access to a collection of jobs the system recognises as being near their current location. Not only does it enhance the candidate experience by making it that much more personalized, because the location information also maps to the candidate's individual record in the CRM, this now allows for targeted marketing and communications based on location, too. 

The feature is on by default, appearing alongside a job search field (below) or the full job search block:

When a candidate clicks on the button and opts in to sharing their location when prompted by their browser pop-up, they will then be presented with a collection of jobs near their current location. In addition, that candidate location information is sent to their CRM record as a recent location. The location is accurate to  around 100 meters and is significantly more reliable than the IP geolocation process that occurred previously. 
If you do not wish to present your candidates with the option to view jobs near them, please follow the steps below to disable the feature:

Jobs Near Me on a Jobs Search Form

Navigate to the page on which the jobs search form is added as a block.

Locate the block and click on the left-side pencil icon to edit.

Jobs Near Me in a Job Search Results Block
