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.
The Custom fields boost user interface consists of the + button used to enter the edit mode and adding new fields to boost.
Below the switch, you will find the search results used to monitor real-time how the Custom fields boost affects the search results.
To edit the Custom fields boost values, follow these instructions:
A dropdown menu appears.
A list of available custom fields appears.
Custom fields boost editor appears.
In the screenshot, the range starts with the value 78 and ends with the value 200. Relevancy of documents with values below the starting number (78) is multiplied by one and relevancy of documents with values above the ending number (200) is multiplied by seven as set in the score multiplier. Documents with the values between 78 and 200 are multiplied linearly within the range of 1 to 7.
After adding custom fields for boosting you have the option to Edit field and Delete field. The options are available from the three dots menu in the field element.
