As of NW ’04 SPS 12, 13 & 14, the following new functionality exists for TREX within Knowledge Management and Collaboration.   Sponsored Links – available with SPS12: Sponsored links appear in the search results list in a special area above, beside, or below the regular search results. Authors and content managers can determine what links are displayed when users search using specific key terms. In this way, they can point users to important documents, portal pages, or other objects. An example of a possible use case is when searching for vacation, the system should also display a link to a portal page on which the employee can enter a leave request or view their vacation allocation status. Sponsored Links is only available if your administrator has set it up.  For additional information on this topic please see Sponsored Links in the Content Manager Guide and Configuration of Sponsored Links functions in the Administration Guide  Using TREX to search for rooms – available with SPS13: As of SPS13, if you have created a large number of rooms, you can now use TREX for high-performance searching of rooms. In this situation, the system automatically creates the search index required when the system is started and indexes the corresponding content in the Content Management folder. Regular index administration is required to ensure search results are up-to-date.  The previous search method, Content Management search interface, is also available. If you are using a small number of rooms in your company, and you do not require the high performance search, you can manually deactivate TREX. In this example, the system switches automatically to the Content Management search interface. For additional information on this topic please see Configuration of the search for rooms in the Administration Guide.  Searching for portal pages and iViews – available with SPS14: You can now create an index for the search in the Portal Content Directory (PCD). If you choose this index when searching, the results list contains portal pages and iViews that are contained in the roles of the logged-on user. In the search field in the portal header, enter the name, ID, or description of a portal page or iView. Open the Search Options dialog box and make sure that the checkbox for the corresponding search area or index is active. In the results list, you only have to click a result in the search list to navigate to the corresponding portal page.  For additional information on this topic please see Searching in the Users Guide

    When search only handled documents, we had a policy of applying mandatory meta data.  Now that iViews and Pages can be indexed, is there an ability to apply meta data to them too.  Also, does the description field help with improving the relevancy ranking of the search results?

    The indexing of pages and iViews has been on our wish list since EP 5.  It is good to see it implemented now.
