Introducing the new search experience in model-driven Power Apps

We’re thrilled to announce the general availability of a new intelligent search experience in model-driven Power Apps, that enhances productivity and makes information discovery fast and easy. This update includes a series of usability enhancements and core relevance search improvements to deliver quality results quickly. The usability enhancements help you interact with search in a familiar and recognizable way, making it an essential part of how you navigate through model-driven Power Apps.

Search bar in the header

Search is moved to a prominent place in header. It can be easily discovered from any page in all model-driven Power Apps on the web consistently.

Zero query search

Recent searches and recently accessed records make up a personalized result set for every person to help complete search with a single click. No query is required.

Suggested results, as you type

View search results inline as you type, minimizing keystrokes and simplifying navigation. We’re evolving search to help you be more productive in exploring your data in Common Data Service.

Results page that is easy to understand

Search results are ranked and presented grouped by entity type, with more fields displayed for distinguishing records. As you drill into specific entity types, filters are automatically adjusted to be relevant for that view.

Intelligent search

Relevance search leverages artificial intelligence technology to interpret natural language terms, misspellings, common abbreviations, synonyms and more in an effective way to deliver quality results.

Intelligent search capabilities are rolling out gradually and will be available on English-language environments in regions Canada (available now), Oceania (deploying), Great Britain, Europe, and North America by early 2021.

Turn on the new search experience in Power Platform Admin Center

Administrators can enable the new relevance search experience through a feature setting in Power Platform Admin Center.

Review the documentation for more details. If you are enabling relevance search for the first time, please review how you can configure the entities and fields to search against.
