Radius option available in Advanced Search for Temp Orders and DH Orders

We added the ability to select a radius in Advanced Search for Temp Orders and Direct Hire Orders [For US addresses only] so that it is easier to locate jobs for employees more precisely.



To use this:

  1. Go to Advanced Search > set Search Type = Temp Order > set Table = Address > set Description = Zip Code > Enter a Value for the Zip Code > click Add Search.
  2. Select Description = Radius.
  3. Enter a Value for the Radius (example: 5).
  4. Click Add Search.
  5. Click Run Search.
  6. Click Search Result. The results shown will match the Radius parameters; if a location is far enough away, it will not be included.

This search value also works when Search Type = DH Order.
