PolyAnalyst 6.0.944 introduces a new In Query property that is displayed for keywords when viewing the Keywords tab for a selected category in the Taxonomy node.
One of the common requests by customers is to get a fully transparent overview of how PolyAnalyst’s search syntax ultimately matches different text. The basic problem arises from PolyAnalyst’s search features.
We designed PolyAnalyst to make it easy to write search queries that match more than just what was typed. You can perform searches for a word plus all of its synonyms, or a word plus any of its immediately related terms in a dictionary, and so on. This makes it rather convenient to write complex, powerful search queries without having to maintain constant knowledge of all terms of interest relevant to the query. Configuration of the query is divided between the query itself and the management of entries in a dictionary. Consequently, the problem is that division aspect. As a result, it becomes less obvious which terms are involved in a query, because the dictionary entries for terms related to the words in the query are not immediately available.
The new In Query column makes it easy to see what words are actually used in the search query that PolyAnalyst ultimately applies to match various records. Simply execute the taxonomy, select a category, and visit the Keywords tab for that category. You can right click on the column header “In Query” and select “Sort Descending” to view a list of words that were involved in the query. These words may have been physically typed into the query, or included as the result of a dictionary lookup that expanded the query.
