Organizations intending to implement a search solution in SharePoint often approach this “technical problem” by asking "What do we need to index?”. While this approach may yield results they are usually less than optimal. The approach presented in this session begins with the user and drives to determine what the user needs and wants in their search experience. We will discuss:
- Search Center design and configuration
- Search Results XSLT to improve results rendering
- Customizations to enhance the SharePoint search experience
- BDC Integration to search structured data
Update 8/3: This month’s meeting will be on Tuesday, August 26th at 6PM.
