  1. Support for Dictionary DataType

    Dictionary datatype is very common. Often, we'd like to store our data as a dictionary. Currently, I serialize and store it as a string. It'd be great if the dictionary type is supported.

  2. Support Edm.Date type

    Azure Search only supports Edm.DateTimeOffset. This is great for timestamps and other point-in-time data. However, it's horrible for things like birthdays, invoice dates, and other whole-date scenarios.

    1976-08-27 is very different than 1976-08-27T00:00:00Z.

    Edm.Date was added to OData v4 for this exact reason. It should be a primitive type in Azure Search as well.
