Agility Search: In Preview

Site search is one of the most effective ways to increase engagement with your site.  That little search box sitting there on your home page is a gold mine, waiting to be tapped. 

Announcing: Agility Search!

Search Status: Ready!

Setup is easy - Agility crawls and indexes the pages on your site based on your sitemap, and you have complete control over your index.  

 

Metadata such as the OpenGraph Image, Category, and Language are all respected, with the ability to define custom metadata selectors coming soon.

 

Fast Crawling, Daily and On Demand

Crawls happen daily or on demand.  You can also re-crawl the site at any time to pick up pages that have been changed.  The index is kept automatically up to date. 

 

Complete Control Over Your Indexed Pages

You can see all the pages in your index, including any PDF, Word, Excel, or PowerPoint files that are linked from your Media and Documents section.

You can remove a page from the index, or mark it to be re-crawled.  You can tell the render time and language of each page, too.

This allows data from Orders, Transactions, Customers, and Promotions to be loaded into a PowerBI Report.  Now you can unleash all of the analysis, visualization and other Business Intelligence workflows enabled by PowerBI with your Agility Data.
