Maps and directions are a common intent for many enterprise searches. Many companies have more than one building and it's critical for businesses to provide a correct answer when employees search for a building location or directions within their organization.
As one of the more requested scenarios from our customers, today we are pleased to announce a new feature called, Locations. This feature enables enterprises to surface relevant buildings and places, pertinent to an individual enterprise, based on simple keywords you choose.
To get started, have your Microsoft Search in Bing admin to visit the admin portal and manage the locations for your O365 tenant. Below are the help documents if you'd like to learn more on how this works.
- Add a Location
- Manage Locations
- Bulk modify using import/export features
- User instructions for using location feature
We have a few pointers while creating or using the locations features:
- When a new location is created, it will be available for search after 2 hours.
- Location is searchable using the Location name, Keywords and Reserved keywords.
