Partial Matches

I have suddenly been getting a ton of partial matched leads.  Has anything changed that I need to address within my settings?  I have checked each job category I have open to receive leads for and they are all set at the right distance and the right kind of jobs.  Suddenly, I've been getting a flood of leads for jobs 2 hours away from me and in categories I don't want.  I opened my request page yesterday and had 58 partial matched jobs.

Any way to avoid these and just get quality leads for jobs I want in the areas I want to work in?  I have everything set the way that I want.

Re: Partial Matches

I've been having the same problem.  Would love to know what the problem is.  I'm getting hundreds of requests daily...

Re: Partial Matches

@TomPotter @RyansLawnServic Sounds like this has to do with Advanced Settings. It's located at the bottom of your services page. If anything is turned on there... take a closer look. If you were charged for anything outside your preferences because of Advanced Settings being on, just shoot me a private message with the names of the customers you were incorrectly charged for. I'll look into it as soon as I can!

Re: Partial Matches

I'm having this problem as well, and it's not a case of getting charged when I shouldn't.  It's a case of getting inundated with absolutely worthless leads that I have to wade through just in case.  I had 58 leads waiting this morning, and the majority were these "partial match" leads that are a waste of my time.

I looked at all my settings and made a few adjustments, but I'm not sure these would have been kept out of my feed by the changes I made.

Re: Partial Matches

Thank you, Jordan! That's hopefully doing the trick. I havent gotten any more partial matches.

Re: Partial Matches

Advanced settings have nothing to do with it I checked to make sure that my ranges of service are within 30 miles of me and I getting job leads that are at the least 2 hours away.

Re: Partial Matches

Let's get things figured out @PaulasZzerts. Looking in your jobs tab right now, are there jobs in there that are out of your normal travel radius? If so, could you send me a private message with the name of the customer?

Am I the only on who is getting tons of requests from other states and hours away from me in my request box? Not getting notifications of them. They are just appearing in my request box.

Re: Glitch!!!!

Hi @Charsie1, I've moved your conversation here since it's a similar topic. It's very likely that this is your advanced settings. Take a look at this page about what those are, and feel free to opt out of them with the steps listed.
