Squirro 3.6.8 LTS - Cognitive Search Improvements
Squirro 3.6.8 LTS - Cognitive Search Improvements#
With the Squirro 3.6.8 LTS Release Notes release, the Squirro Cognitive Search Template received significant improvements.
See the screenshots below for a few impressions of the new design and functionality.
These screenshots and descriptions introduce some of the Cognitive Search Template’s new features.
Homepage with Varied Information#
Last Read Documents is the latest addition to the content displayed on the Overview tab of the For You dashboard. The document cards now display the time when an item was opened instead of its creation date. The order of display from top to bottom is Community Documents > Saved Documents > Last Read Documents > Favorite Filters.
To deep-dive into a single type of content, the various View All links on the Overview tab provide an easy access to the respective tabs on the left.
Explore Dashboard with a New Filter Panel#
In order to extensively explore the project data, various types of filters like Labels, Entities and Communities are put together as accordion buttons where each section can be expanded or collapsed simultaneously.
This provides a better categorization of filters and utilization of space by having one dedicated dashboard section for listing, applying, and removing the filters. All applied filters are listed inside the first accordion button called Filters.
Explore Dashboard unified with Global Search#
In the past, Explore and Global Search existed as two different dashboards, which increased the maintenance cost of the app. As both had quite a huge overlap of widgets and user experience, the two are now merged into one. Widgets like QA, Similar Searches, Communities List and Tabbed results are configured with a new visibility condition NLP Search Intent is not empty to be visible only when search is executed from Global Search bar.
Community Dashboard lists the Following tab as the first tab to give an overview of user’s community preferences.
Global Search Bar and Search Result (Explore) Dashboard#
On enabling the new dashboard configuration property called Search in page, the search is limited to the active dashboard. In the new app template, this option is enabled on the Communities and Community 360° dashboards. Choosing the option to Search in entire project or searching from For You or Explore dashboard, uses the Explore dashboard to display the search results.
On For You and Explore dashboards where we use three column layouts, scrolling the content will not scroll the navigation tabs or filter panel out of the view.
Empty Screen Improvement#
When there is no content to show for various widgets across the app, an empty screen illustration is displayed along with a helper text to guide the user in related configuration.
