Search notes, custom verticals and refiners

This week we shipped custom verticals and refiners on SharePoint content worldwide.

Search verticals only show results of a certain type or from certain content. Examples are Files or News. By default, Microsoft Search shows the verticals All, People, Files, Sites, and News. You can add search verticals that are relevant to your organization that represent content indexed with one or more Microsoft Graph … keep reading.

Vertical and filter customization on SharePoint content allows a Microsoft Search administrator to edit out-of-the-box search verticals, such as Files, Sites, News, etc., and create custom verticals on SharePoint content at the organization and site levels (tenant-scoped and site-scoped respectively).

For example, you can add an ‘Author’ filter to Files vertical to refine the results by one or more authors or a ‘Modified’ filter to the News vertical to refine the results by date created or modified and sort ascending or descending.

In the past, this level of customization has been limited to 3P verticals (verticals based on 3rd party data index-time merged with Microsoft Graph connectors).

With this new feature, you can create custom verticals based on SharePoint content (I.e. sites). Perhaps your organization is a legal firm, using custom verticals and filters with SharePoint content, you can create a dedicated search vertical where users can search by location, case type, retainers, etc.

In addition to creating these verticals and related filters, search administrators can also curate a vertical to narrow down results based on dynamic information such as location, user profile, etc., using query variables. Assuming the law firm in the above example is a MNC, a search administrator can use query variables to show results based on the users’ location from their user profile.

Launching Edge with different profiles using shortcuts – Tahoe Ninjas

Restored my lost my profiles by using shortcuts as described in this  great blog by

What happened?

I lost all my 23 profiles during an upgrade of Microsoft Edge / Windows 11.

After checking the directory C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\ I found that the profile directories were still there but were not visible in the Edge profile switch settings menu anymore.

The solution!
By running the command:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe –profile-directory=”Profile xx” where xx is the number of your profile I was able  to restore the profiles in the menu. Only passwords need to be entered again.

Set up Viva Learning and publish your own content using SharePoint

Viva Learning was launched to GA (General Availability) at Ignite 2021 Fall Edition and rolled out to commercial Microsoft 365 tenants during the last months of 2021. Your employees will, by default, be able to begin using Viva Learning right away without any IT administrator action to enable it or configure it. Now is the time to get to grips with what is available to configure, and how you can use the built-in functionality to good effect.

Creating a video portal in SharePoint with JSON formatted document library

 

“Often times we store videos in SharePoint and use the file viewer or the highlighted content web parts to display videos on the homepage of the site. With Microsoft Stream also moving towards SharePoint for storing meeting recordings, the use of videos in SharePoint site pages could increase. Recently I worked on an event page in SharePoint and thought it would be useful to have a video portal created for the event to store and display event session recordings.”
