Search Engine Control

📖 To bring you our most recent search engine, we work hard. We have updated our key features and added new ones to give you and your clients the greatest possible search experience. But as we make enhancements, our app has progressively become more sophisticated, and the capabilities we offer are more difficult to monitor and govern. Consequently, we are pleased to provide you with Search engine control. This dashboard includes actionable buttons and links to our user documents to assist you in keeping an eye on our various search capabilities.

What is Search engine control?

Our Search engine control is a monitor hub where you can observe all of our search features and their statuses. Our search features currently include AI Synonym, Semantic search, Searchable fields, Partial search, Typo tolerance, Numeric search & Special characters, Manual synonyms, and Search merchandising.

There are 5 columns in the control center:

  • Features: our available search features
  • Type: our search feature’s categories (Advanced, Standard, Merchandising)
  • Status: the current status of the features (Locked, On, Off, or Trial)
  • Actions: these cog-symbol buttons ⚙️ are actionable buttons that will redirect you to the feature’s customization page (if available)
  • Learn more: these book-symbol buttons 📕 are actionable buttons that will redirect you to the feature’s Help Center article to understand more deeply about that function

💡 You can experience our advanced AI-powered search feature (synonyms and semantic search) by subscribing to a trial period with us!
