Insights Explore Bar - Bloomreach Experience - Open Source CMS

Insights Explore Bar

The Insights Explore Bar is a powerful tool for discovering information. You can find the Explore Bar at the top of most pages within Insights.

Using the Explore Bar

As you start typing in the Explore Bar, a dropdown menu will appear with suggested options. To complete the search, select an option from the dropdown. You can also continue typing to refine the search then view different options.

Searches in the Explore Bar are defined by specific keywords. There are three types of searches you can make, each with its own set of keywords:

  1. Ranking

  2. Performance

  3. Relation

Given below is an example of the dropdown menu for a search by performance.

Some options require you to enter additional information to perform the search. For example, if you select Performance Of Products In This Category, then you need to input a category ID on the next screen, as shown in the image below: 

 

If you search by performance of cat:category ID, then you need to include the category ID as shown in the image below:

 

You can combine several keywords to refine your search. For example, a search by Performance of "cat:chairs" segmented by channel filters by category and segment.

Keywords must be combined in a specific order, such as the following:

✅ “Performance of...where…”

❌ “Where...performance of…”

For more details on keyword order, read the sections below.

After you submit your search, the system will generate a report as shown below:
