3.3 Talent Showcase Searching Settings


The searching settings allow you to control the way your Talent Showcase works. You can control the search options, field labels and way search results are displayed.

Search Form

Enable Search - This enables the search form on the Talent Showcase - if this is not selected, the "Find Talent" option in the Talent Showcase header will not be available. A client's only option would be to browse the list of talent.

Display Search By Location - Toggle this to hide or display the location search field.

Display Search By Proximity - This allows clients to display their results by the proximity to their postal code. It requires that a zip code is entered for all talent posts.

Display Search By Employment Type - This setting allows clients to search for talent using the Employment Type field. By default, this option is enabled. Disabling this option will remove the Employment Type field from displaying on the Talent Showcase.

Expand Advanced Search By Default - If you'd like the Advanced Search fields to display by default, use this option.

Employment Type Label: The optional field, Employment Type, may be renamed here. By default, the label for this field is "Employment Type".

Category Label: The required field is used to classify talent into job categories. The label used by the field can be changed. By default the Category field label is "Category".

State Label: Utilizing this field will change the term "State" on the Talent Showcase and application. By default, the label for this field is "State/Province".
