2458571 - How to increase the Relevance of Catalog Search Results?


When users search their catalog, you want some learning items to rise to the top of their search.
For example, if a catalog has two learning items, both involving workplace safety, but one is a general safety class and one is specific to the group using this catalog, you might want to rank the specific one higher than the general one. If a catalog is assigned to electricians in New York, you want the workplace safety specific to electricans in New York to be higher than a learning item that is for any employee.

Learning Management System


1. Go to Learning administrations and Learning -> Catalogs
2. Find and open the catalog that you want to manage.
3. Go to one of the following places that support search relevance.

  • Items
  • Curricula
  • Programs

4. In Search Weight, add a relevancy score multiplier.

Learning creates a relevancy score each time a user searches. The relevancy score is calculated by a search algorithm. The closer the result to the user's search, the higher the relevancy score. The Search Weight is a multiplier to the relevancy score, so a value of 1 uses the relevancy score that Learning found. A value of 2 doubles the relevancy score, and so on. When users sort their catalog search results by relevancy, they do not see the relevancy score on the page, but they are sorting by the weighted relevancy score.
