  • Recommender system ● Given a page, what other pages are useful? ○ ○ Courses in a course finder Products in a product catalog ● Based on click associations or text similarity ● Would need to be integrated into target website directly or with JavaScript, or using a ‘bookmarklet’ as we’ll show.
  • New default form ● Based on Bootstrap 3.0 + Gordon’s work ● Responsive ● All your usual features plus: ○ ○ Geolocation in advanced search Tools (Performance, Query syntax tree)

  • Modern UI now supports... ● Click tracking ○ Also tracks autocompletion use (but no reports yet) ● Cached copies ○ Provides easier ways to change page presentation ● Document Level Security ● No excuse for using Classic UI anymore Removed support for creating Classic UI collections ○ Modern UI doesn’t support ‘related queries’ or ‘tagging’ (because they don’t seem to be used) ○
  • Result collapsing ● Allows multiple results to be ‘collapsed’ into one entry on the result page (and a drill down action to see them). ● Useful if you have many versions of the same document or some other ‘grouping’ need
  • Autocomplete improvements ● Select facets from query completion
  • ManifoldCF ● Replacement for EntropySoft connectors ● Open source ○ No cost for connectors, but no official support either ● Supports ○ Sharepoint, Alfresco, LiveLink, Documentum, FileNet, Dropbox, Google Drive, Jira and a few others. ● Does not support ○ Lotus Notes/Domino ○ Exchange ○ Symantec Enterprise Vault ○ Oracle UCM
