Search as an application tool It’s fairly obvious but we can search for content Quick access to a dataset Could be cached Could be near real time Security Trimmed results Cross Site Content Easy to work with LARGE sets data Can use SharePoint 2013’s GeoLocation field type to even return results nearuser’s location
What’s the problem All the results look the same Documents and sites look thesame but are not the same This is the experience thateveryone is used to.
Current ProblemSharePoint 2010 Search Not easily customizable Changes to Search require an admin SharePoint Enterprise Search not as feature rich as needed FAST Search costs extra FAST Search is not easily configured Refiners are not very snazzy Not easy to administer
SharePoint 2013 Search Rewritten to combine SharePoint Enterprise Search and FAST search New Functionality Display Templates Result Types Query Rules Query Builder Site/Site Collection Search Management Result Sources Continuous Crawl Automatic Property Creation Improved speed and scalability Search Data available through REST
Result Types Result Types are a combination of conditions and display templates Conditions match properties to identify a particular type of result The result type allows the changing of the appearance of this particular item This is what allows us to bring our and highlight the information that is usefulfor each item in search. Based on the conditions we can have specialized displays of content based onany managed property
Building a Result Type Plumb any properties you need into search Create the look you want with a Display Template Hook up the template to a Result Type Try it out with a search!
Query Rules Conditionally promote important results Show blocks of additional results Tune ranking
