Weighting fields in admin tool


I just wanted to check if it's possible to apply default weights to specific fields in the admin tool? I'm looking for something like Ranking -> Ranking Weights but for custom fields.

Hi Aga,

This is not possible with Coveo Enterprise Search as field values are not used in ranking algorithms. Only the title, URL and the body of the indexed documents are used by ranking algorithms for searched terms frequency, proximity and so on.

Note that you can achieve this result using ranking expressions though.

I know this thread is over a year old. But I'm wondering whether there was any progress on this since then in the newer versions of Coveo.
