X1 Search 8.3 - Feature Requests

Rather than clutter up the old message about feature requests, here is a new one to go with the lastest beta programme.

Can we have some way of reordering saved searches?

How about adding "nested folders" for searches? It doesn't take long to create an unwieldy and disordered mess.

I know that it is possible to edit the xml file, but that is a dangerous tool in clumsy hands.

Hi Kenward

I hope you get what you want. None of the features in 8.3 are of interest to me.

I installed the new version only because it offered some tweaks in the display. In particular, I saw mention of:

  • Added color indicator when any terms are entered into refinement columns
  • Various UI improvements

In the event I can't say that I notice much difference.

I have no idea what they mean by Brokered Searches.

I have noticed that the new installation seems to have stomped all over my carefully tweaked displays. It also seems to have wiped out my Outlook index, which is now slowly rebuilding itself. But perhaps that is a coincidence.

With the growing emphasis on SharePoint I think we can see which way X1 is going. I would rather have the ability to work with other cloud services.
