Published on

No one will argue, one of the major changes brought to SharePoint 2013 lies around Search. With the new Continuous Crawl, the new architecture and the many changes to the existing and new Web Parts, your architecture will need to be re-worked. This session is for those with experience in SharePoint 2010 that want to see how we can exploit the new features and Web Parts to build our own new Search Center. This session will cover:
What is Continuous Crawl?
Using Analytics to better the user experience with search
Changes and new Web Parts for Search (refinement, search results, content search, etc.)
Result Types and Rules
Display Templates
And more…
The release of the new SharePoint 2013 with this advanced Search will greatly influence the way you architect your SharePoint. This session gives you the opportunity to see what can be done with Search so you don’t have to say “I wish I knew that before”.

  12. 12. Analytics and Search Search analytics analyzes content that is being crawled and added to the search index. Usage analytics analyzes user actions, or usage events, such as clicks or viewed items, on the SharePoint site.
  13. 13. Crawled & Managed A crawled property is content and metadata that is extracted from an item, such as a document or a URL, during a crawl. ! To include the content and metadata of crawled properties in the search index, you map crawled properties to managed properties. Managed properties can have a large number of settings, or attributes. These attributes determine how the contents are shown in search results.
