Default Search: If a template with a map was selected, there are 2 options for default search behavior. Only one default search behavior can be selected.
Auto-search on page load: By default, accounts are automatically able to attempt to detect a user’s location by their IP Address. If location detection is on, locators can use Auto-search, based on a user’s location, to search for locations. This option cannot be selected if location detection is off. When using auto-search, you can choose whether to populate the search filter with the detected postal code or city and state.
Use Postal Code for Auto-search: Select this option to populate the search text field with a detected postal code instead of city and state when users first arrive at the search.
Use city and state/province for auto-search: Select this option to populate the search text field with the detected city and state instead of a postal code when users first arrive at the search.
Display all Locations on Map: This option displays all locations on the map. This option is not available with the List only template.
Display all Locations per Country: This option displays all locations in a detected or selected country if the country is configured for radius search. If a country is configured for territory or any other type of search, this option is not used.
Choose display when user's location cannot be detected: When location detection doesn’t work, a user’s location cannot be found, and auto-search cannot work. If Autosearch is selected, No Results is selected as the fallback behavior by default, and no results are shown on the map. If Display all Locations on Map is selected, All Locations on Map is selected as the fallback behavior.
