Free search text using the admin panel
I was able to successfully create a free text search field using the custom config files and it is indexable and does return results.
However I wanted to know if this is possible using the CES admin tool in Coveo 4 on perm addition PRO?
Reason I want to do this using admin panel and not config file is client have asked that what if in future they want to create a new free text searchable field using the admin panel?
Hopefully this is an easy step but incase it is not, how we can respond to our client? If it will be part of the future releases or not?
Unfortunately, any change done using the Admin Tool will be overwritten by the next config synchronization of your Coveo for Sitecore.
So if you want to set the free text searchable attribute to a custom field, you need to do it in the config file.
