Smart Search Fields

Chetan Sharma asked on November 30, 2015 13:40

Hi All,

Is it possible to map a non-date field to a date field for Smart Search in Page types "Search fields" settings?

We don't need Date but a category from the document type. Or do I need to build a custom search service and do all manipulations there?

Thanks Chetan

you could control what is put in your field and even do some logic before it is inserted as a generalfield
