Search relaunched

We’re very pleased to announce the launch of the latest iteration of our search engine. As indicated in the previous post, there are a range of improvements that users should notice straight away.

  • Improved look and feel, especially on small screen devices
  • Filtering of results by preset refinements (news, events, etc.)
  • Introduction of image search
  • Auto completions that prompt users as they type
  • Introduction of promoted results

The service will be launched with just a few promoted results configured, but requests for new ones can be made through the ITS Service Desk. There will be a governance process to ensure that the value of promoted results is not diluted. General feedback and suggestions about the new service are welcomed via the UserVoice forum, accessed through the feedback button on the search page.
