1. TreeView Refiner Webpart

The TreeRefiner Webpart extends the standard refiner webpart and visualises the terms in the hierarchical context of the term-tree. Users can select terms in the hierarchy to drill down or drill up in the search results. This webpart makes use of managed metadata. This refinement webpart has these advantages over standard SharePoint-Search:

  • The terms contained in the search results are presented in their tree-context
  • Users can easily drill-up or drill-down in the tree to broaden or narrow the search

The TreeRefiner Webpart enables users to dynamically filter and find SharePoint-content by using a navigation hierarchy tree control panel to apply different metadata-based filters. Search terms can be used in combination with the TreeRefiner to refine the result list. In contrast to the standard refiners, which are reset when the user enters a new search term, the TreeRefiner Displays the entire taxonomy tree and remembers the user selection. The advantage over standard SharePoint-Search:

  • The SharePoint-content can be explored just by selecting a taxonomy-term and without being forced to enter a search term.
  • SharePoint-content that is tagged with taxonomy-terms can be further filtered using search Terms.

2. QueryFacets Webpart

The QueryFacets webpart provides a view on currently selected refiners, so called facets. The list of facets is perfectly synchronized with the refiner web parts, i.e. each user selection in the refiner web parts updates the list of facets. The advantage over standard SharePoint-Search:

  • The user can verify his refiner selections at one glimpse.
  • Values can be easily de-selected by clicking on them in the list.
