When people talk about search the first thing that comes to mind is Google or Bing. The problem with this is that Search can be a powerful tool to get information to users and create applications without requiring code. SharePoint 2013 Search makes this a lot easier for the end user, not a developer or admin, to be able to use search in their own systems, although developers and admins could benefit and use these options as well. We will cover the basics of search and how these can be used to drive the application. We will cover new abilities in SharePoint 2013 Search that will make this easy. This will all be portrayed in relation to a real life example that most businesses could use. We will be creating fully useable Bulletin Board in less than an hour. Come learn how you can use SharePoint 2013 search to create applications for your company with nothing more than a simple text editor and a browser.

Why are we here? For the free Food! And Something about SharePoint And something about Search too.

What is Search?

Metadata  Key to successful SharePoint adoption  Can users find what they are looking for?  Avoid folders  Tag everything  What is it that uniquely identifies this item?  In Lego Terms  Color  Thickness  Shape  Number of Dots  Transparency

Site Collection A SearchSearch Crawl Content Search Web Part Site Collection B Site Collection C Site Collection D List of articles/documents Recommendations Popular items

We’re going to have a test. Raise your hand when you have the answer to each question.

What’s the problem  All the results look the same  Documents and sites look the same but are not the same  This is the experience that everyone is used to.

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

SharePoint 2010 Search Headaches  Not easily customizable  Changes to Search require an admin  SharePoint Enterprise Search not as feature rich as needed  Refiners are not very snazzy  FAST Search costs extra  FAST Search is not easily configured  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

Display Templates  Determine how the content for search will be rendered  Written in HTML/JavaScript instead of XSL  Best approach is to take an existing template and copy it  Place your display templates in your master page folder

Layers for display templates Control Item Also: Filter, Group and Hover Panel

Demo Display Templates

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 useful for each item in search.  Based on the conditions we can have specialized displays of content based on any managed property

Building a Result Type Plumb any Managed 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 and repeat as needed by searching

Query Rules  Conditionally promote important results  Show blocks of additional results  Tune ranking

Query Builder: Connecting you to results Create queries Preview Results Full screen query builder to create/test queries Fully integrated with result sources and query rules Query variables are substituted at query time
