Step 7: Add User Interface Elements

Why this step matters: It is critical for the user’s experience that the interface of the search experience displays data points that match the expected results for queries. For this reason, it is important that there is a correlation between the fields indexed via the Search Configuration and the fields displayed in the front-end Search experience.


Search Configuration

  • Configure fields you display on the experience’s user interface as searchable in the Search Configuration.
  • Configure Facets on fields in which NLP Filters are used to allow a user to deselect that filter if they wish to expand their search via the User Interface.

Common Mistakes

  • Configuring NLP Filters or Facets on fields that may contain data that may differ from the front end (e.g., if a provider has a “Primary Specialty” field that is “Hip Replacement” displayed on the User Interface, but an “All Specialties” field configured with NLP Filter which includes “Hip Injuries” and “Shoulder Issues” a user might be confused as to why a provider with a card that states “Hip Replacement” is showing up for their shoulder related search).
