We have a customizable filter on our Job Board based on business classification (i.e. retail; casual dining; etc.), so shoppers have the option to see only the types of shops they're actually interested in.
If you want to take advantage of the filter, we need you to add business classifications.
Without this filter, there is no way to designate universal business categories. Using the Edit Business Classifications > Manage Business Classifications link on the Survey Settings page, you can create a standard set of business classifications and edit/assign shops to them accordingly. This standard set of categories and the shops assigned to them will automatically appear in the search filter (as long there are shops available within that business type).
How To Set Up Business Classifications
From the main Admin page, go to Business Classifications from the quick jump menu.
To add a Business Classification, click the Add New Business Classification link
Then enter the standard label you want for this business type. Then click Add New.
To edit an existing Business Classification, click the Edit link on the row you wish to edit. Then you can either Delete or Edit as you'd like. Be sure to Save any changes you make.
