Show potential buyers

available Specter Group

Solution
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Hold On… Important Prerequisites
 Enterprise License Required
For Catalog creation and CBS
 Depends on Search Indexer
 Source site collection feature,
Cross-Site Collection Publishing must be activated
 On-prem only – No O365 support yet
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
And Limitations
 Consuming site requires restricted read access on authoring site
 Because results can be security trimmed
 Cross site publishing only supports pages and lists
 Content assets (videos, images, etc.) need to be on assets site
 Use Suggested Content Browser Location
 Results based on search index freshness
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
What About Content Deployment?
 Very different approach
 Must be across content databases
 Not based on search
 May be used for similar reasons,
but apples to oranges comparison

The Problem
 Results all look the same

Demo Solution: What We Want to Build…
Scenario:
Customize Search Experience
When user searches for “floor plans”

Customize floor plans result type
as best bets

Promote beachfront properties
in the summer
Result Types
Tailor the look of important types of results
One of these things… is not like the other.

Result Types
 Conditions match result properties
 Identify a “type” of result
 Display Templates can change the look
 Of a “type” of result

Six types of conditions available
 Action: What to do when rule fired

One or more actions per rule

Six types of actions available
