  1. Extend Tag Boosting by "searching" instead of "filtering"

    Azure Search with Tag Boosting will give a boost to documents that have "exact" tags in common with the input query.

    If a tag in index is "salt lake city" and one from query is "salt lake", the document doesn't get a boost. Even worse, since I believe Tag matching is using "filter" routine, it is case-sensitive.

    Yes, we can do multi-column search, but one column search with tag boosting is a way more fast and returns better relevance results focusing on the main column.

    So it would be great if Azure Search extends the current Tag Boosting to use…

  5. Add auto-turning by telemetry logging or any type of log gathering on Azure Portal or so.

    Some customer doen't have Search expert and need to ranking profile turning after telemetry dashboard. Can we add Suggestion functionarity on Azure Portal like "how about to add this ranking profile"?

    I like the idea of making suggestions in the portal about ways an admin can improve the experience of their user, but I’m not sure I understand your specific suggestion. Can you provide more information about the telemetry you’d expect us to track and the criteria we’d use to provide a recommendation to the admin?

    Thanks,
