Another element for creating a perfect search are so-called result blocks. This way, the Raytion SRI can precisely address particular search use cases and user intents as part of the search result page. These result blocks can thus be shown above or below the general search result list and provide their own relevance model.
The new Raytion Search & Retrieval Interface makes this easy: In the standard interface, it provides result blocks for people search, recommended links (or so-called editorial results), project spaces and tools. Each of these result blocks shows some results and can optionally be configured to refer to a search vertical. Thus, such a vertical will show all results connected to the specific use case.
We added so-called range filters to the Raytion Search & Retrieval Interface. You can chose them to filter e.g. file sizes, price ranges or product ratings dynamically. The screenshot shows the new range filter. When employed and configured, it is much easier to browse for products or documents.

The current Raytion SRI release introduces editorial workflows for the Search Experience Management. These newest updates will be available from version 7.0.0. This way, editors can edit recommended links, which are released through an approval process. In addition, it is now possible to control the time of publication of a recommended link. For example, you can activate or deactivate a link to a new portal or to the page with the quarterly figures precisely. Overall the administration of the Raytion SRI follows the same processes as in your intranet portal.
The following screenshot shows the different publication statuses of various recommended links.
