As a user of the Places near your location card, when I give location permissions I do not expect the card to disappear
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Why are we doing this?

In a recent usability test a user allowed location data to be accessed by the app via a prompt from the 'Places nearby you' feed card. After accepting the card disappeared, which was disorienting for the user.

Proposed solution

If possible, turning on location data via the Places feed card should not dismiss the feed card but should instead keep the current card but show the distance from the location now presented and the button text greyed out and turned to "location enabled"

@NHarateh_WMF, working great! Thanks so much!

Also @ABorbaWMF, as an FYI, we removed the blue link from this instance of the card as there would only be a list of 1 article. That blue link should still be present for instances of the Places card when location is enabled though.
