Ignite is long over, but there were two very useful nuggets in the session BRK2045 – Explore new personalized, intelligence powered search experiences in SharePoint, Delve and O365.
Disclaimer: We don’t know the exact timeline for these features, but they are on the roadmap.
- Content enrichment web service will work for hybrid crawls – This allows you to keep any existing investment in CEWS to work if you switch to indexing content into the SPO index instead of your on-premises index (slide 25)
- Custom synonyms feature in SPO admin UI – Perhaps a bit cryptic, but this means we will get a thesaurus in SPO search. Huge! (slide 26)
