      • Choosing default ranking model in query rule management breaks date sorting

        Per this documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/search/manage-query-rules

        This section: Change ranked search results

        This specific action -- choosing an alternate ranking model for the default sort

        If you chose to sort by rank, you can optionally:

        Select which model to use for ranking search results (this selection is optional). Use the Ranking Model drop-down list.

        Issue is: are MSFT search product managers aware that if this sort option is chosen (to default sorting to a specified ranking model), it 'breaks' any other provided sort options on the results page (i.e., date sorting, ascending or descending no longer works -- the picklist option for…

                  • The Current SharePoint Search Results Display of description cannot be modified.In results,Its picking up any random line from the document

                    In search results description,search is picking random line from the dcoument description instead of first line of the document.and we cannot modify this.This should be modifiable to make the search result more relevant.

                      • An easy way to create modern pre defined search views when using hub sites

                        A bit like highlighted content webbpart but better.

                        A link could be created - that opens a page or a webpart that its easy to define layout and views of a pre defined search. So link says find all policy docs, or all forms. And as libraries across multiple hubbsites have a managed metadata for document type set up it would then be possible to define that when the search runs how these are displayed - so it would say group the found policy documents under each hub site it found them.

                        So look like this

                        Refiners policy | forms…

                        • Provide feedback on Search Results

                          Enable some mechanism that allows a consumer to provide feedback on the results they get in search (e.g. not getting expected results or feedback tied directly to a specific content item). General feedback would be routed to one place while content item level feedback would be automatically routed to the assigned author.

                              Synonyms are vital to make search work. You cannot have a proper enterprise search with good quality without synonyms.

                              The search experience in typical SharePoint search solutions suffer from the lack of synonyms.

                              - Admins have no control over what synonyms exist out-of-the-box (if any)
                              - Admin don't know what synonyms are imported. The only possibility is to import a list via cmdlets. You cannot even export(!).
                              - Synonyms are not available in the central admin user interface

                                Query logs should be actionable. When reviewing a query log for search terms that result in 0 hits, we need should have the ability to add a synonym to fix the 0 result.

                                E.g. assume that the zero hits query log is sorted by frequency. And at the top you have:

                                As an admin I should have the possibility to add a synonym here. To map power point -> powerpoint, ppt ,pptx, presentation, ...

                                  As your set of crawl rules grows, it gets increasingly complicated to understand exactly which URLs are included or excluded. In Central Admin we can test all rules by pasting in a single, example URL. We then see which rule is trigged and what the outcome is (include or exclude).

                                  I'm asking for this functionality to be expanded. I would like to define a set of unit tests that we can run against our crawl rules list. The unit test can be defined as simple as a list of URLs where the outcome is either include or exclude.

                                  You can…

                                  • Crawl rules annotations and change history

                                    For large sites with many, detailed crawl rules it quickly becomes confusing to administer these rules. I'm asking for something as simple as an annotation (comment) to be added to each crawl rule. That way we can understand why it was added in the first place.

                                    Use case: We run multiple large internet-facing web sites. For one of these sites we have about 250.000 searchable items that we support on our on-site search. We need around 50 crawl rules to ensure we include/exclude parts of the content.

                                    We have a 10 year history of maintaining rules to include/exclude content. When…

                                      • Enhance the search filtering options and customisations

                                        The Modern UI search results page is missing filtering options available in "Classic" mode. In addition, there is no way to add custom filtering options, which is also available in "Classic".

                                        The default "Classic" filtering options allow users to filter upon author, modified date and result type, with the possibility to add other "default" columns to the filtering options. Only modified date is available in the Modern UI (File type is also available for files).

                                        "Classic" mode provides the ability to add filtering options, based upon custom columns. The Modern UI does not provide the ability to add custom columns…

                                          It should be possible to filter documents from all sites (or selected sites) in the hub in the Featured Documents app, where the filter is based on Enterprise keywords / tags.
                                          This will be useful when you want to create a central overview over the different documents tagged with some specific keywords or combinations of keywords.
