Coveo for Sitecore preselected facets
My site has some scenarios where we want to take the user to a search page but already have one of the facet values selected. I've seen different responses to this question so I'm hoping to get a definitive answer for 'Coveo for Sitecore 4.1'
Example: Staff search page
In one case, we want to only show Senior Staff members (preselected). Tried to grab the URL:
However, Coveo seems to drop the facet values and goes back to the default all results URL.
Is this easily achieved? This is something that worked with GSA so hoping that it can work out of the box.
So I tried it with a Facet that had no spaces in the name and it appears to work. The problem seems to be with Facets that have spaces in the name. Ex: &f:Type:[Some%20Value] works. &Staff%20Position=[Senior%20Staff]
For this URL: https://mydomain/coveosearch/allcontent#sort=relevancy&f:Type=[News%20Article]&f:Focus%20Area=[Education]&f:Focus%20Area:operator=and
It comes back with https://mydomain/coveosearch/allcontent#sort=relevancy&f:Type=[News%20Article]
