Phrase-specific One Way Synonyms

Hi team,

This post was inspired as a potential solution to a use case described in this community post, but I wanted to separate them out as they are separate requests/ideas.

I have come across a few use cases where it would be helpful to have the ability to set a one way synonym for an exact phrase/specific query in answers rather than for all queries. For example, to configure queries for “phone” to return similar results as “locations near me”, it would be helpful to set a one way synonym in our system between those phrases only when “phone” is by itself rather than a query that includes “phone” such as “phone number for billing department”.

I believe this also could help limit noise in our system for many use cases that synonyms currently solve where conflicts in intent arise.


Thank you for your request here. I wanted to let you know about our new Ideas board. Ideas is a new feedback platform within Hitchhikers where users can submit product ideas or feature requests. I’d recommend moving each of these to Ideas so you can track statuses and comments from our Product team, and receive upvotes!

Let me know if you have any further questions.
