AddThis no longer support this feature


This feature of AddThis was deprecated on Jan. 11, 2021. The AddThis Email App is the one being recommended by AddThis as a replacement for this feature as it offers a more secure way of sending emails. 

To avoid showing the message to candidates, the only option is to remove the section from the CSB configuration

Open Appearance /Global / Social Share
Disable : Show E-mail Widget

If you would like to avail of the AddThis Email App, note this cannot be done via CSB standard configuration. Integration with this new tool is not available or currently planned.
A custom integration would have to be implemented by an implementation partner.
Please contact AddThis for more information at 

Note that the Addthis widget is considered a legacy tool and not recommended for use on the CSB career site. 
As some customers requested this widget be retained however, there is currently no plans to deprecate it formally from CSB.
If the Addthis widget no longer works in the way that’s desired, we recommend customers simply turn it off as per the instructions above.
