  • MManaged properties can be made Searchable, Queryable, Retrievable, Refinable, or SortableManaged properties in SharePoint 13 get a slight overhaul. They are now set under Search Schema in the SSA. They can be set as searchable, queryable, retrievable, refinable, sortable or any combination. The differentiation is made to change functionality and limit storage requirements. Searchable: Includes the content of the property in the index, making it searchable as a query term alone. Documents with a searchable property on them will be returned as keyword matches. Queryable: Making a property queryable allows you to query it using property queries such as Property:Value. Retrievable: Retrievable properties can be returned to the result set for display or programmatic usage.Refinable: Allows properties to be returned in refiners. Sortable: Allows properties to be used for sorting.ore power to site and site collection admins

    11. 11. What does means?Use content Separate Target Respond to Display Consume from storage of content to user items in the remote anywhere content specific searches format of search in from display users easily your choice indexes SharePoint
    12. 12. Search Scenariosin SharePoint2013WHAT CAN SEARCH DO FOR MY ORGANIZATION?
    13. 13. “ I wish we could customize search results by the type of content being returned.• In SharePoint 2010 XLST customization of search results was painful ”• In SharePoint 2013 this is easy and no more XLST madness• Very powerful capability
    14. 14. “ When someone searches for something I wish we could fire another search for them and bring• back those results MICHAL DREAMS OF SHAREPOINT 2013 ” Imagine if we knew what our users were searching for and could respond accordingly?• In SharePoint 2013 we can do that
    15. 15. “ I want an Intranet homepage that presents different content to different users based on their• region, profile or department EVERY SINGLE CUSTOMER THAT I TALK TO ABOUT AN INTRANET ” Aggregating and targeting content to specific users was previously difficult• In SharePoint 2013 remarkably easy to do, basically out of the box functionality• Some incredible possibilities for Intranets, Knowledge Management, etc..

    22. 22. How does all this magic work? Result Where should these results come from? Sources Display Query When should we showHow should these these results? results look? Templates Rules
    23. 23. ResultSources Result Sources  Combination of Federated Search and Scopes  Exchange and other remote SharePoint farms are now a source  Can apply query transformations  Much more powerful than scopes were previously  Allows for real time injection of parameters  “Only query content that was created by the current user”
    24. 24. Query RulesQueryRules  Allows you to help act upon the “intent” of a query  The new way to help you react to users and help them find what they are looking for  Have three elements:  Query Conditions ( matching rules)  Query Actions (what happens when you find a match)  Publishing options
    25. 25. QueryRules Query Rule Conditions Conditions allow you to define the circumstances under which your query rule will apply You can also match if a query is against a specific Result Source or category (like a Topic Page category) Each Query Rule can have multiple conditions
    26. 26. • Simple keyword match ^Query contains a specific word or words • If someone search for “Permafrost” then show a promoted result Query contains a word in a • Match to a Term Setspecific dictionary (dictionary in • If someone searches for a word that is part of our KB a term set) taxonomy then add a result block from this source Query contains an action word • If an action word is contained in a query, eg: find, reports, pdfthat matches a specific phrase or • If a search contains the word Wiki then only show Wiki based term set results • If a query is used in a different source Query is common in a differentsource (like Videos Result Source) • If a query mostly returns videos then change the ranking to rank videos slightly higer • If the results are mostly of a particular file typeResults include a common result type (like file type) • If a user searches and mostly PDF files are returned then show the user the last 5 PDF files they have createdAdvanced rule – match across a • Basically anything set of terms, dictionary, regular • If a query looks like a phone number then add a result block of expression, etc. users that searches for the person with that number
    27. 27. Query Rule ActionsQueryRules  Assign a “promoted result” to the query  Promoted result is similar to Best Bets with SharePoint 2010 or Visual Best Bets with FAST Search 2010, but much more flexible  Create and display a Result Block  Result blocks specify an additional query to run and how to display results  The feature includes a full query designer so you can build and test queries before finalizing them  You can include the results above those returned by core results, or interleaved by ranking  You can also choose custom display templates instead of the default for the result  Change the query that returns the core results  Change the original query by changing the query terms, adding additional terms, apply an XRANK formula to the query, etc.  You can add multiple best bets or results blocks for each query rule
    28. 28. QueryRules Promoted Results
    29. 29. QueryRules Add Result Block Can fire another query in response to a users query Can change the query that is being triggered:  Filter on the users name  Choose the result source to target  Choose the display template to use  Change the sorting and ranking model  Choose the number of item to display
    30. 30. DisplayTemplates Display Templates Allow you to create a different way to display search results based on the type of content Have the following characteristics:  Define the visual layout of a result  Defined in HTML (no more XLST)  Can be created in any HTML designer  Can be linked to a particular content type or class of results Can be centrally managed or Site Collection managed
    31. 31. Result Sources DisplayTemplates Query Rules Putting It Together  A Knowledge Base Example:  Users search for a particular term that is part of a knowledge base taxonomy  We create a query rule that if a search word matches part of the taxonomy then we will fire  We create a Promoted Result that tells them where the knowledge base is  We create a Result Block that retrieves items only from the knowledge base  We create a Result Block that finds people that have the search terms listed as part of their interests on their profile  We rank items from the knowledge base Content Source slightly higher than other content
    33. 33. Content Search Web PartIssues a search query and retrieves resultsAllow cross site collection use of contentAllow real time injection of parametersChoose to display content in any way you like usingDisplay TemplatesLink to Managed Navigation to reuse parameters ona single pageConsume content from anywhere with SharePointand outside it
    34. 34. Cross Site PublishingSeparate the authoring of content from thepresentationCan reuse the same content anywhere acrossSharePointUses search as the driver to find and consume recentlychanged itemsAllows segregation of the physical storage of contentfrom presentation
