When preparing data for ingestion into the Knowledge Graph, users may need to exclude data that is outdated or not relevant. For added flexibility, we have added a new transform tool that lets users specify columns they would like to ignore when loading data into the Knowledge Graph.
Now you can use Connectors to easily ingest Multi-Language data and store it in corresponding Language Profiles. The updated Connectors workflow now allows users to specify the primary Language Profile and create and edit alternate Language Profiles using any source, including the Crawler and API integrations.
Customers can now use the new SkillJar Course Connector to add their courses in SkillJar as structured data in the Knowledge Graph. This makes it easy to surface content from SkillJar courses across experiences powered by the Knowledge Graph, such as Answers search.
When creating custom dashboards or reports in the Analytics platform, users can now add search term word count as a filter or dimension. This provides a helpful tool for users looking to understand how queries may vary between longer and shorter searches.
With this update, you can now restrict the results of a Store Locator to a particular country.
For example, if you have stores in Naples, Florida and your customers search for Naples, the locator may interpret this as a search in Italy!
Now, you can set the Country Restriction parameter to a particular locale code (e.g., “US” for United States, “IT” for Italy).
This enhancement will not impact any currently live locators. If you’d like to use it, simply open your Store Locator Module and set the Country Restriction parameter.
Looking to offer customized experiences for your end-users? Would it be helpful to see some ideas of use cases that advanced administrators have built on top of Yext? Check out our to find all kinds of unique projects built on the Yext platform and implemented by talented Hitchhikers.
In order to simplify our taxonomy, better align it with our publisher network, and support more streamlined Answers experiences, we will be consolidating several duplicate categories within the healthcare vertical. Any listings that are currently using the categories set to be deprecated will be switched over to the remaining category; this process should be seamless and will have no impact on your listings.
ACTION REQUIRED: Clients who use the Yext Knowledge API to update their healthcare location and/or providers’ data will need to update their ETL to stop referencing any of the merged categories and use only the remaining categories instead. Failure to do so will result in API errors.
The specific changes can be seen below. This change is set for April 13th, any necessary Yext Knowledge API updates should be completed prior to this date. Please reach out to your Yext point of contact with any questions.
