  1. Presets has been a huge productivity-booster in our team. We changed the config to store all presets on a common fileshare. Now all team members get a pre-populated list with presets, created by the search devs themselves.

    Our experience was that non-search devs often got unexpected results because there are just too many buttons to fiddle with, and they don't understand our data model. Now we can ask people to create a new preset when they reproduce a bug for example. When reproducing a bug we know that we are running the exact same query, with exactly the same options as the bug had originally.
