I have setup a new search page, but I was unable to select some standard objects, such as products, to be searched. Is this possible as well? (Salesforce, Express)

Could you provide more context, such as the Coveo product you are using? Are you talking about search pages in Salesforce?

Which Coveo product are you using? I'm assuming Coveo for Salesforce form the context. In this case, which edition of Coveo for Salesforce are you using?

Note that you can change the indexed/displayed items either in the source configuration (Pro/Enterprise, see Customizing the Salesforce Source Configuration in Cloud V2) or in the search page itself (Free/Express, see Using Custom Objects with Coveo for Salesforce Express).

Yes. In order to do so, you can drag and drop a tab component and with the appropriate filter expression add the Salesforce object (custom or standard) to the interface.

By default, we do not show all your objects under Add new tab, after drag and dropping the tab component, set a filter expression on @objecttype:

For more information on the syntax to use, see Coveo Cloud Query Syntax Reference.

When using Coveo for Salesforce Free and Express, make sure to use the object api name in the expression. When using Coveo for Salesforce Pro and Enterprise, first, make sure the object is indexed and then use the field name from your Coveo index (see Fields - Page).
