Dashboard Result Management and Ranking Structured Data

Custom fields boost feature allows for selecting a custom field range and amplifying the visibility of documents matching the selected custom field range.

Custom fields boost feature helps target products, for example, with a specific range of star ratings or a price range.

For instance, if you sell products in differently priced tiers, Custom fields boost lets you amplify the visibility of any of the tiers separately.

Please note that using the Custom fields boost, the fields require numeric values.
