How is the search function on the interface organized? How can I optimize usability of the search function for my customers?
The search algorithm uses several factors when determining how results are returned. To optimize it, you can add search keywords to your products (product edit page 1; or via import). You can also track which terms are searched in the 'Search Statistics' section of the Dashboard in the OMS menu bar. In addition to the Keywords fields, Product Name, SKU (on the Product level), Short Description, Long Description, and the Custom Field (if applicable) are used to determine results and result rankings when a customer performs a keyword search. If the 'Search All' option (Settings/Boolean Options) is on, Category Name and SKU on the SKU level are also included.
